  • In the Firewall ports topic Internal connections table, the ports for the agent on the Hyper-V server have changed:

    • Agent on Hyper-V server Appliance Disk download TCP 3012 (HTTP), 3512 (HTTPS)
    • Agent on Hyper-V server Appliance Disk upload TCP 3015 (HTTP), 3515 (HTTPS)

The first one the ports were already required to be open from UI to ELM, we just added need to be open from Agent to ELM. However, those are the ones that were wrong. I believe they used to be 3011 and 3511. The second one is completely new.
