Complete the following procedure to set up an external repository (Repo).

Note: 1.) You need an unzip utility installed on the host to complete this procedure. 2.) You must know how to create a web server before you complete the following procedure.

  1. Log in to the web server host.
  2. Create a directory to host the NW repository (netwitness-11.3.0.0.zip), for example ziprepo under web-root of the web server. For example, if /var/netwitness is the web-root, submit the following command string.
    mkdir -p /var/netwitness/<your-zip-file-repo>
  3. Create the 11.3.0.0 directory under /var/netwitness/<your-zip-file-repo>.
    mkdir -p /var/netwitness/<your-zip-file-repo>/11.3.0.0
  4. Create the OS and RSA directories under /var/netwitness/<your-zip-file-repo>/11.3.0.0.
    mkdir -p /var/netwitness/<your-zip-file-repo>/11.3.0.0/OS
    mkdir -p /var/netwitness/<your-zip-file-repo>/11.3.0.0/RSA
  5. Unzip the netwitness-11.3.0.0.zip file into the /var/netwitness/<your-zip-file-repo>/11.3.0.0 directory.
    unzip netwitness-11.3.0.0.zip -d /var/netwitness/<your-zip-file-repo>/11.3.0.0
    Unzipping netwitness-11.3.0.0.zip results in two zip files (OS-11.3.0.0.zip and RSA-11.3.0.0.zip) and some other files.
  6. Unzip the:
    1. OS-11.3.0.0.zip into the /var/netwitness/<your-zip-file-repo>/11.3.0.0/OS directory.
      unzip /var/netwitness/<your-zip-file-repo>/11.3.0.0/OS-11.3.0.0.zip -d /var/netwitness/<your-zip-file-repo>/11.3.0.0/OS
      The following example illustrates how the Operating System (OS) file structure will appear after you unzip the file.

    2. RSA-11.3.0.0.zip into the /var/netwitness/<your-zip-file-repo>/11.3.0.0/RSA directory.
      unzip /var/netwitness/<your-zip-file-repo>/11.3.0.0/RSA-11.3.0.0.zip -d /var/netwitness/<your-zip-file-repo>/11.3.0.0/RSA
      The following example illustrates how the RSA version update file structure will appear after you unzip the file.

    The external URL for the repo is http://<web server IP address>/<your-zip-file-repo>.

  7. Use the http://<web server IP address>/<your-zip-file-repo> in response to Enter the base URL of the external update repositories prompt from NW 11.3.0.0 Setup program (nwsetup-tui) prompt.
