Ports to open for BE10d and Remote Agent

Created: 20 Nov 2012 • Updated: 21 Nov 2012 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have recently had to move my DB server which is a Solaris 9 OS box off of domain "A" and on to domain "B". The BE10d is installed on a Windows Server 2003 R2 EE SP2 and still lives on domain "A".  The problem is now that the DB server is on a different domain from the BE server, data on the DB server is not getting backed up. I know that certain ports need to be opened, but I don't know which ones.  I think I have seen something about 10000, 6101, and 50000 - 50025.  Can someone please help me with this old 10d version since Symantec would rather upgrade me than to answer this question.  I'm not going to upgrade this because the hardware is getting upgraded in another 3 to 4 months from now and it would not be cost effective.

10000 is right and the Default port ranges are 1025 to 65535. Symantec recommends using a range of 25 allocated ports for the remote systems if using Backup Exec with a firewall. Check out page 336 on the admin guide provided below

Thanks for the reply Donald, I'm requesting Corporate to open the ports 6101, 10000 and 50000 - 50025 and open these in the BE options/Network and Firewall settings.  We'll see how it goes.
