NetWitness Platform sends version updates to the Local Update Repository from the Live Update Repository. Access to the Live Update Repository requires and uses the Live Account credentials configured under ADMIN > System > Live. In addition, you must check the Automatically download information about new updates every day checkbox under ADMIN > System > Updates to populate the Local Repo daily.

The following diagram illustrates how you obtain version updates if your NetWitness Platform deployment has Web Access.

 

Note: When you make the initial connection with the Live Update Repository, you will be accessing all the CentOS 7 system packages and the RSA Production packages. This download of over 2.5 GB of data takes an indeterminate amount of time depending on your NW Server Internet connection and the traffic of the RSA Repository. It is not mandatory to use the Live Update Repository. Alternatively you can use an External Repo as described in Appendix C. Set Up External Repo.

To connect to the Live Update Repository, go to the ADMIN > System view, select Live Services in the options panel and make sure that credentials are configured (Connection light should be green). If it is not green, click Sign In and connect.

Note: If you need to use proxy to reach out to the Live Update Repository, you can configure the Proxy Host, Proxy Username, and Proxy Password. For more information see "Configure Proxy forNetWitness Platform" in the System Configuration Guide.

See Apply Updates from the Command Line (No Web Access) if your NetWitness Platform deployment does not have Web Access.

The following diagram illustrates how you obtain version updates if your NetWitness Platform deployment does not have Web Access.
