The following table describes network ports that must be opened to ensure proper communication with the runtime coordination process deployed inside the Microsoft SQL Server guest OS for application-aware processing and transaction logs shipping.

From

To

Protocol

Port

Notes

Veeam backup server or Guest interaction proxy (in Enterprise and Enterprise Plus editions)

Microsoft SQL Server VM guest OS

TCP, UDP

135, 137-139, 445

Required to deploy a runtime coordination process on the VM guest OS.

TCP

49152-65535 (for Microsoft Windows 2008 and newer)

Dynamic RPC port range used by the runtime coordination process deployed inside the VM guest OS for application-aware processing (when working over the network).*

For more information, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929851/en-us.

TCP

6167

[For Microsoft SQL Server transaction logs shipping.] Used by the runtime process on the VM guest OS from which transaction logs are collected.

Microsoft SQL Server VM guest OS

Veeam backup server or Guest interaction proxy (in Enterprise and Enterprise Plus editions)

TCP

49152-65535 (for Microsoft Windows 2008 and newer)

Dynamic RPC port range used by the runtime coordination process deployed inside the VM guest OS for application-aware processing (when working over the network).*

For more information, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929851/en-us.

Log shipping server

TCP

2500 - 5000

[For Microsoft SQL Server transaction logs shipping.] Default port range used by Veeam data mover service for data transmission over the network.

* - If you use default Microsoft Windows firewall settings, you do not need to configure dynamic RPC ports. Veeam Backup & Replication automatically creates a firewall rule for the runtime process during the installation. If you use firewall settings other than the default ones or application-aware processing fails with the “RPC function call failed” error then, you need to configure dynamic RPC ports manually.

TCP, UDP

135, 445

Required to deploy a runtime coordination process on a target guest OS.

TCP

49152-65535 (for Microsoft Windows 2008 and later)

Dynamic RPC port range used by the runtime coordination process deployed on a target guest OS.

For more information, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929851/en-us.

Microsoft SQL Server VM guest OS

TCP

1433,1434 and other

Used for communication with the Microsoft SQL Server installed inside the VM during the application-item restore.

Exact port numbers depend on the configuration of your Microsoft SQL server. To learn more, see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc646023.aspx#BKMK_ssde.

TCP

1025 - 1034

Default RPC port range for the runtime component installed on target or staging server guest OS to support restore operations in most scenarios. Port is open only during application item restore (Veeam Explorer session).

To learn how to modify default port range, see How Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SQL Server Works.
