  • ONTAP 9
  • Cluster Data ONTAP 8
  • Data ONTAP 7-Mode
  • NFS v3

Answer

  • The default ports used by the storage controller are as follows,

Data ONTAP:
111   TCP/UDP portmapper
2049  TCP/UDP nfsd
635   TCP/UDP mountd
4045  TCP/UDP nlockmgr
4046  TCP/UDP status
4049  TCP/UDP rquotad


Data ONTAP 7-Mode:
111   TCP/UDP portmapper
2049  TCP/UDP nfsd
4046  TCP/UDP mountd
4045  TCP/UDP nlockmgr
4047  TCP/UDP status
4049  TCP/UDP rquotad

 
  • It is possible to modify those default ports, therefore to check the currently configured ports on your storage controller please use the following commands,


Data ONTAP 7-Mode:

7dot> options rpc
rpc.mountd.tcp.port          4046
rpc.mountd.udp.port          4046
rpc.nlm.tcp.port             4045
rpc.nlm.udp.port             4045
rpc.nsm.tcp.port             4047
rpc.nsm.udp.port             4047
rpc.pcnfsd.tcp.port          4048
rpc.pcnfsd.udp.port          4048
rpc.rquotad.udp.port         4049

Data ONTAP:
cDot::*> nfs show -vserver NFSsvm -fields rquotad-port ,nlm-port ,nsm-port ,mountd-port
vserver mountd-port nlm-port nsm-port rquotad-port
------- ----------- -------- -------- ------------

NFSsvm    635         4045     4046     4049

cDot::*>

  • Alternatively show the ports listening on the node with the following

cdot::> network connection listening show -node <node name>
Vserver Name     Interface Name:Local Port              Protocol/Service
---------------- -------------------------------------  -----------------------
Node: node 1
Cluster          node1_clus1:7700                       TCP/ctlopcp
vs01             VS01_lif01:40001                       TCP/cifs-msrpc
VS01             VS01_lif01:135                         TCP/cifs-msrpc
VS01             VS01_lif01:4049                        UDP/unknown

 

  • These ports list can also be seen from from most unix clients with the command: rpcinfo -p <storage-controller-IP>
