Encryption information

The following graphic shows the secure communication configuration between the CLM components. 

The following table shows which communications strings you can encrypt between the various components. HTTPS ports are web-based communications using SSL to encrypt. TCP ports are all other ports, whose port numbers are configurable and use DES encryption out of the box.

You can configure these ports within the AR System server configuration settings on the Encryption tab. You must set the New Encryption Settings - Security Policy to Required and Data Key Details - Algorithm Options to DES.

You can also upgrade the DES encryption to use more advanced encryption algorithms via the Performance and Premium upgrade packages.

Installer host port requirements

The installer uses specific ports to connect to the target computers. Ensure that the firewall allows communication from the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer host to the target computers, using the ports listed in the following tables.

Windows port requirements

If a firewall is configured in your environment, ensure that the firewall allows communication from the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer host to the target computers by using the ports listed in the following table. The installer uses these ports to run commands to check application connectivity, database connections, RSCD connectivity, remote installation status, and so on. The port numbers in the table are the default values and might change based on user input or user environment configuration. For example, the database might be installed on port 1522 instead of port 1521. In that case, you must ensure that the port is enabled in the firewall.

Note

The Cloud Portal and Database server is installed by default on portmapper; the port number assigned in that case is port 0. For the Cloud Portal and Database server, you cannot change the port number during installation.
ComponentPort numberDescription
BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management  Install Planner12333, 9998, 22

Installer ports

On the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer host, ensure that port 12333 is free for the install planner.

The BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer executes product installations remotely using a silent installation. The product installations that are launched on the target hosts use port 12333 or 9998 (for BladeLogic Server Automation), as applicable, during invocation on the target host. The BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer queries the ports over the network to check whether the installation launched successfully. If a firewall is between the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer host and a target host, ensure that these ports are not blocked.

SSH port 22 is required for the installer to authenticate credentials of target host as well as the SCP connection for RSCD installer copy.

This requirement applies to all product hosts.

BMC Remedy AR System server (AR System server) and IT Management Suite0 (default value if the portmapper is being used)

Cloud Portal and Database server, AR System server post-installation , and Cloud Portal AR Extensions port

The default value on which Cloud Portal and Database server is installed by the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer is port 0 if the AR System portmapper is being used. The BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer queries the port (chosen randomly by the portmapper) over the network during AR System server post-installation  to check whether the AR System server is running. Make sure there is no firewall is between the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer host and a target host.

 
 1433 (default value)

Cloud Portal and Database server database port

When the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer installs Cloud Portal and Database, the installer attempts to connect to the database using the user-supplied database port to ensure that the database is up and running.

If the target Oracle database is installed using default values, the default port is 1521. If a firewall is between the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer host and the database host, ensure that this port is not blocked.

 
BMC Server Automation1433 (default value)

BMC Server Automation database port

When the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer installs BMC Server Automation installation, the installer attempts to ensure that the database is running by connecting to it through the user-supplied port. If the target Oracle database is installed using the default values, the default port is 1521. If a firewall is between the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer host and the database host, ensure that this port is not blocked.

 
 4750

BMC Server Automation RSCD agent port

This requirement applies to all hosts (product hosts as well as the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer host). If a firewall is between the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer and a target host, ensure that port 4750 is not blocked, because the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer runs remote commands for target host installations to the RSCD agent on the target host (which uses port 4750).

 
BMC Network Automation1433 (default value)

BMC Network Automation database port

When the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer installs the BMC Network Automation, the installer attempts to ensure that the database is running by connecting to it through the user-supplied port. If the target Oracle database is installed using the default values, the default port is 1521. If a firewall is between the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer host and the database host, ensure that this port is not blocked.

 
Preboot Execution Environment (PXE)1433 (default value)When the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer installs PXE, the installer attempts to connect to the database using the user-supplied database port to ensure that the database is up and running. If the target Oracle database is installed using the default values, the default port is 1521. If a firewall is between the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer host and the database host, ensure that this port is not blocked.

Linux port requirements

If a firewall is configured in your environment, ensure that the firewall allows communication from the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management installer host to the target computers by using the ports listed in The following section. The installer uses these ports to run commands to check application connectivity, database connections, RSCD connectivity, remote installation status, and so on. The port numbers in the table are the default values and might change based on user input or user environment configuration. For example, the database might be installed on port 1522 instead of port 1521. In that case, you must ensure that the correct port is enabled in the firewall.

Note

The Cloud Portal and Database server is installed by default on portmapper; the port number assigned in that case is port 0. For the Cloud Portal and Database server, the port number cannot be changed during the installation.
