Outbound internet access

Outbound internet access is required when installing Cloud Manager and when using Cloud Manager to deploy Cloud Volumes ONTAP. For a list of endpoints, see Networking requirements for Cloud Manager.


The following ports must be available:

  • 80 for HTTP access

  • 443 for HTTPS access

  • 3306 for the Cloud Manager database

  • 8080 for the Cloud Manager API proxy

    If other services are using these ports, Cloud Manager installation fails.

    Note There is a potential conflict with port 3306. If another instance of MySQL is running on the host, it uses port 3306 by default. You must change the port that the existing MySQL instance uses.

    You can change the default HTTP and HTTPS ports when you install Cloud Manager. You cannot change the default port for the MySQL database. If you change the HTTP and HTTPS ports, you must ensure that users can access the Cloud Manager web console from a remote host:

    • Modify the security group to allow inbound connections through the ports.

    • Specify the port when you enter the URL to the Cloud Manager web console.
