Disabling vsanvp firewall rule Error


VSANVP – Virtual SAN Vendor Provider

This issue occurs if the service.xml file (located at /etc/vmware/firewall/service.xml) has required tag for vsanvp set to true.

This indicates that the firewall rule is required to enable regardless of the service state.

For example:

<service id='0035'>
    <rule id='0000'>
      <port type='dst'>8080</port>
      <flags>-m state --state NEW</flags>
    <rule id='0001'>
      <port type='dst'>8080</port>


Time out feature keeps the existing virtual SAN (VSAN) connection alive regardless of the Virtual SAN Vendor Provider (VSANVP) service state.
