Ports are open only during application item restore (Veeam Explorer session):

  • Target server operates as iSCSI initiator. During restore, iSCSI initiator connects to the iSCSI target via one of the ports from this range.
  • Also, in several situations (e.g., during restore from a SAN snapshot), additional iSCSI mount may be required. In that case, the staging SQL server becomes an additional iSCSI initiator, and during restore it also connects to the iSCSI target via one of the ports from this range.”
