This can cause confusion for systems upgraded from 10.4.X and lower, as these parameters are not present.
CauseWhen the initial installation of the server is NOT version 10.5.0 or higher, these parameters will not be present.  
Therefore this post-installation task is not applicable on a 10.4.x system that is upgraded to 10.5.1.
ResolutionSkip these steps, as eluded to in the title "For New Security Analytics Customers as of Only".  
These steps do not apply to any ESA server that has been upgraded from a version of Security Analytics below 10.5.0.
Unless the ESA server was initially installed with 10.5.X, these parameters will not be present.
