Hi,

I have build and configure new SCCM site but I been ask to lock the port 1433 to only system which needs access to the database.

SCCM/WSUS and SQL are install on same server.

We do have DP and MP on different servers

  1. Do I only need to give site server access to database only?
  2. Do I need give All SCCM servers (e.g. DP, MP) to database
  3. Do client also need access to database?

    Do I only need to give site server access to database only?

    That depends on which roles are hosted on any additional site systems. The primary site server itself definitely needs access.

    Do I need give All SCCM servers (e.g. DP, MP) to database

    No. As noted, it's about roles. If you review the port documentation (at https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/core/plan-design/hierarchy/ports), it lists all roles that need access to site's DB:

    • Datawarehouse service point
    • Endpoint Protection point
    • Management point
    • Reporting Service point
    • SMS Provider
    • State migration point

    Note that there are two additional roles that require access, but they are for deprecated functionality (AI Sync point and Enrollment point). Also note that your SUP instances require access to the WSUS DB whever that may sit as this may be separate from the site's DB.

    Do client also need access to database?

    No.

    1. Do I only need to give site server access to database only? For Your Scenario only MP to Site SQL server will require SQL Port access as Site Server . WSUS server & SQL on same server.
      Site Server --> Site SQL Server & WSUS DB Server  
      WSUS --> WSUS SQL Server  
      MP --> SQL Server  
      

    Refer : https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/core/plan-design/hierarchy/ports

    1. Do I need give All SCCM servers (e.g. DP, MP) to database
      Ans : No
    2. Do client also need access to database?
      Ans : No
