  • ONTAP 9
  • Clustered data ONTAP 8
  • Fpolicy

Answer

Clustered data ONTAP uses two separate protocols for the purpose of fpolicy.

  • Fpolicy specific port number dependent on the fpolicy configuration, this connection will be outgoing from one of the data lifs of the SVM towards the configured fpolicy server IP
  • HTTPS (TCP port 443) towards the management lifs configured in the external fpolicy engine, these connections will be incoming towards the storage controller

Most external engines will use ZAPI calls to configure the specific port being actually used for fpolicy traffic, check the fpolicy documentation to know which port will be used
