This topic describes how to configure the destination to which the Warehouse Connector service needs to write the collected data.

  • RSA Analytics Warehouse (MapR) deployments
  • Commercial MapR M5 Enterprise Edition for Apache Hadoop deployments


Make sure that you have:

  • Installed the Warehouse Connector service or virtual appliance in your network environment.
  • Added the Warehouse Connector service  to Security Analytics. For more information, see the Add a Service to a Host topic in the Hosts and Services Getting Started Guide.
  • Set up NFS on Warehouse Connector. For more information on how to set up NFS on Warehouse Connector, see the Configure Warehouse Connector to Write to Warehouse topic in the RSA Analytics Warehouse (MapR) Configuration Guide.


To configure the destination:

  1. Log on to Security Analytics.
  2. In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > Services.
  3. In the Services view, select the Warehouse Connector service, and Actions menu cropped  > View > Config.

    The Services Config View of Warehouse Connector is displayed.


  4. On the Sources and Destinations tab, in the Destination Configuration section, click .
  5. In the Add Destination dialog, select NFS from the Type drop-down list.


  6. In the Name field, enter a unique symbolic name for the destination.

    Note: The Name field does not support space or special characters except underscore (_).

  7. In the Local Mount Path field, enter the locally mounted directory for HDFS where you want the Warehouse Connector to write the data.

    For example:
    If /saw is the local mount point for HDFS that you have configured while mounting the mapr NFS cluster on the host where you have installed the Warehouse Connector service to write to RSA Analytics Warehouse (MapR), create a directory named Ionsaw01 under /saw and the corresponding Local Mount Path for the destination would be /saw/Ionsaw01.

    For more information, see the Mount the Warehouse on the Warehouse Connector topic in the RSA Analytics Warehouse (MapR) Configuration Guide.


    The /saw mount point implies to as the root path for HDFS. The Warehouse Connector writes the data to /Ionsaw01 in HDFS. 

  8. Click Save.
  9. (Optional) If you want to enable checksum validation, perform the following:

    1. In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > Services.
    2. In the Services view, select the added Warehouse Connector service, and  > View > Explore.

      The Explore view of Warehouse Connector is displayed.


    3. In the options panel, navigate to warehouseconnector/destinations/nfs/config.
    4. Set the parameter isChecksumValidationRequired to 1.

    5. Restart the respective stream.
