What TCP ports does the Oracle Agent use?


List of Backup Exec Oracle Agent TCP ports:
No. Session Name Media Server Process Media Server TCP Port Connection Direction Oracle Server Process Oracle Server TCP Port
1 NDMP control bengine.exe dynamic beremote.exe 10,000 (*1)
2 CORBA bengine.exe 5633 (*2) oracle.exe dynamic
3 NDMP control bengine.exe dynamic oracle.exe dynamic (*1)
4 NDMP data bengine.exe dynamic oracle.exe dynamic (*1)
5 NDMP data bengine.exe dynamic beremote.exe dynamic (*1)


Session #1 is an initial session, mainly used for starting the RMAN command and getting a status of Oracle with session #5.

Session #2 is a job control session under Oracle SBT (Serial Backup Tape) library, which starts actual data transfer and checks catalog information. When a backup job is initiated from the RMAN command instead of the Media Server, this session becomes an initial session instead of session #1.

Session #3 and #4 are actual data transfer sessions using the Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP) between the Media Server and the Oracle SBT library. NDMP uses two sessions, session #3 is a control session and session #4 is a data transfer session.
