This question has been answered by grigory vasiliev

Can you clarify for each server below what ports i need to request opened to allow for SITE ADMIN to query the below servers ?

I have documentation but am a bit confused as to specifically for each distinct server.

Frontend Web Server

Index Server

Query Server

Backend DB server

  • BackendDB server: 1433, 1434

    For system information in the Servers report (only for one report!), WMI must be opened on all SharePoint and SQL servers.

    WMI uses RPC. RPC dynamically selects a free port above 1024 and uses 135 for binding. You can configure custom port range (for more information, please refer to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/154596/en-us.)
