Configure individual hosts and services as described in RSA NetWitness® Suite Host and Services Configuration Guide. This guide also describes the procedures for applying updates and preparing for version upgrades. 

Note: After you successfully create a VM, Azure assigns a default hostname to it. Refer to "Change the Name and Hostname of a Host" see Edit a Host ( in the RSA NetWitness® Suite help for instructions on changing a hostname.

  1. SSH to the host using the credentials you specified in the 1 Basics section of the Create VM wizard when you created the VM in Azure (in item 4d of Step 2. Deploy Component Core Services in Azure).
  2. Reset the password for root.

  3. SSH to the host using root for username and the password created in the previous step and provide NetWitness Suite an IP for provisioning.

    Refer to the Installation Tasks section and the Configure Hosts (Instances) section in the AWS Deployment Guide for RSA NetWitness 11.x.

  4. Log in to RSA NetWitness Suite.

  5. Go to Administration > Hosts.

    The New Hosts dialog is displayed with the host VMs that you created in Azure.

  6. Select the hosts that you want to enable.

    The Enable menu option becomes active.

  7. Click Enable.

  8. Select the host you enabled.
  9. Click and select the component you deployed in Azure (for example, Event Stream Analysis). For more information, see the Hosts and Services Getting Started Guide for Version 11.x.
