Quick Post – SCVMM 2012 R2 / SCOM 2012 R2 Integration Port Used


As you know you can easily integrate SCOM with System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM). If both system live in the same forest this is not a problem and you can find all the steps here. What happen if one system lives in a separated trusted forest which has a firewall in between? For integrating SCVMM into SCOM you run the SCVMM connector wizard. So the connection starts from SCVMM to SCOM. On the firewall we could see a blocking connection on port 5724/TCP from SCVMM to SCOM. This means, the only port used for SCVMM connector is 5724/TCP, which is by the way the same port as the SCOM console uses for connecting to a SCOM management server. We opened that port and the SCVMM integration into SCOM ended successfully.

For all other firewall exceptions, see the list provided on TechNet.
