Anybody know if there are special port requirements for OIP? We have a couple Oracle databases running on hosts in a couple DMZs and they are not showing up in the discovery. If I manually try to discover, I get:
# nboraadm -S <master> -list_instances -host <host_in_DMZ> No instances found. EXIT STATUS 227: no entity was found
No issues discovering instances on our "normal" internal network.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The command doesn't query the client, it queries the repositort on the master. Are your DMZ servers able to connect to the master or only their media servers?
The Discovery process that runs on the client (7.6.0.x) will report any found instannces to the master.
Some communication is allowed from the servers in the DMZ to the master... but it is not unfettered. Do you know what port(s) the client needs to report the instance information *to* the master?
Which... as it turns out, is the port that is NOT open. I confirmed with my firewall folks that 13724 is open, but not 1556. I will update this thread as soon as I can get 1556 open and confirm that discovery then is allowed to communicate!
