[JSA/STRM] What ports are used for HA communication?

  [KB17466] Show Article Properties


Summary:

JSA can be set up in a high availability (HA) environment (active-standby) since version 2009.2.

Symptoms:

What ports need to be opened on devices between the HA members in order for communication to occur?

Cause:

The appropriate ports may not be open between HA members.

Solution:

Between the primary and the secondary HA members, the following ports (bidirectional) need to be open:

  • ICMP between two hosts
  • TCP port 22 for ssh
  • UDP port 6543 for the heartbeat in versions 2013.2 and earlier
  • UDP port 10101 and 10102 for the heartbeat in versions 2014 and later
  • TCP port 7789 for drbd (data replication)

If these ports are not open, JSA cannot be set up in an HA environment.
