Complete the following procedures according to their numbered sequence to install RSA NetWitness Platform in a virtual environment.

Work Flow:

This figure shows the high-level workflow mandatory for installing NetWitness Platform virtual host.

Note: When you configure databases to accommodate NetWitness Platform, the default database space allocation after you deploy databases from OVA or VHDX will not be adequate to support the NetWitness deployment. You must expand the datastores after initial deployment to avoid any issues. For more information, see Step 3. Configure Databases to Accommodate NetWitness Platform.


Make sure that you have:

  • A VMware ESX Server that meets the requirements described in the above section. Supported versions are 6.5, 6.0, and 5.5.
  • vSphere 4.1, 5.0, or 6.0 Client installed to log on to the VMware ESX Server.
  • Administrator rights to create the virtual machines on the VMware ESX Server.
