On all Enterprise Vault servers you need to open the normal ports that are required for authentication within a Windows domain. For example, Kerberos (port 88), DNS (port 53 UDP), Active Directory (port 445).
Enterprise Vault servers and the servers with which they communicate may require other ports to be open, depending on the functionality that you require.
See http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH76080 for information about the ports that File System Archiving requires to be open on target file servers.
Enterprise Vault servers use DCOM for communication between software components. DCOM is based on the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) protocol, which uses the RPC end-point mapper port (port 135) for connection set up and then ports are dynamically allocated from the range of dynamic RPC ports.
See http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH69642 for information on configuring Enterprise Vault for restricted DCOM access.
