Nimble Storage Firewall Rules

    If your organization restricts outbound internet traffic you may need to configure rules which allow the Nimble Storage SAN (Management IP address and Controller A & B diagnostic IP addresses) to communicate with Nimble Storage servers on specific ports.

     

    The Nimble Storage SAN requires the following firewall rules:

    Note: It is recommended to use the fully qualified domain name (ex. nsdiag.nimblestorage.com) rather than IPs, as IPs may change without notice.
