    I have a quick question.  I was surprised that I was not able to find this info.

    What port does replication occur between the SSO sites?  I am looking at doing a Geographically disbursted upgrade to vSphere from 5.0 to 5.5.  We are going to have a singleSSO instances on each site and want to know what port needs to be opened inbetween site for SSO replicaiton to occur?

    I believe its LDAP port 11711 and LDAPS port 11712. Checkout William Lam's blog post virtuallyGhetto: How to verify SSO Multi-Master Replication is properly configured & working?

    Thanks Rommel, I had read that post.  I was hoping that it was 80 or 443 or somthing more common.  I am surprised if it is this port and they did not make it clearer in the documentation.

    When setting up a multi master SSO environment on regonially dispursed vCenters, you would have to make sure that these ports are open to make sure that the SSO instances are syncing.  I would think that if this is the case, it would be more pronounced in the documentation.

    Yeah, I know its an LDAP port and initially thought it will go through 389 but upon testing William's blog, he is correct. The ports are listed in this KB though

    Just watched the VMworld 2013 SSO Best Practice presentation and the ports I mentioned were also stated there.

    It is mentioned all the way at the end of the presentation, but he does explcitly describe regonlaly distributed sites over WAN links and port 11711 and 11712 needing to be opened.
