IssueThe attached PDF document explains how to build NextGen 9.8 and Security Analytics build-sticks that are used to build appliances.
Please download and review the instructions thoroughly to understand how to build an RSA NextGen or Security Analytics build-stick.
It is necessary to request the ISO files from Support.  There are multiple ISO files and each is over 1GB.  
Please review the following notes before starting.

  • Using a build-stick on NextGen is fully destructive of all data on the appliance.
  • The SA ISO rebuilds the Series 4s appliance without putting any information on the SD Cards installed in the appliance.  Disable the SD Cards in ROM BIOS on any Series 4s appliance rebuilt with this image before starting. 
  • The SA 10.4.0 ISO image can non-destructively upgrade certain systems to SA 10.4.  However, the SA ISO only performs a destructive rebuild.
