Make sure that you have:

  • Installed the Warehouse Connector service or virtual appliance in your network environment.
  • Added the Warehouse Connector service  to NetWitness. For more information, see "Add a Service to a Host" 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 "Configure Warehouse Connector to Write to Warehouse" in the Warehouse (MapR) Configuration Guide.

To configure the destination using NFS:

  1. Log on to NetWitness Platform.
  2. Go to ADMIN > Services.
  3. In the Services view, select the Warehouse Connector service, and select  > 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 spaces 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 NetWitness 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 "Mount the Warehouse on the Warehouse Connector" topic in the Warehouse (MapR) Configuration Guide.

    Add NFS destination

    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. Go to ADMIN > Services.
    2. In the Services view, select the added Warehouse Connector service, and select  > View > Explore.
      The Explore view of Warehouse Connector is displayed.

    3. In the options panel, navigate to warehouseconnector/destinations/nfs/config. This is the name of the destination and is dynamic.
    4. Set the parameter isChecksumValidationRequired to 1.

    5. Restart the respective stream.
