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:
|AutoSupport and Heartbeat||nsdiag.nimblestorage.com||TCP 443||HTTPS|
|Software Updates and Downloads||update.nimblestorage.com||TCP 443||HTTPS|
|Streaming Stats & VMVision Per-VM Alerts||nsstats.nimblestorage.com||TCP 443||HTTPS|
|Manual SCP of cores to Nimble Storage Support||support.nimblestorage.com||TCP 22||SCP|
|Nimble Storage Support Secure Tunnel Connection|
Note: It is recommended to use the fully qualified domain name (ex. nsdiag.nimblestorage.com) rather than IPs, as IPs may change without notice.
