This topic contains the rules and high-level tasks you must follow to deploy RSA NetWitness® Suite components in the AWS.
You must adhere to the following rules when deploying NetWitness Suite in AWS.
- SSH to the NetWitness Suite instance at least once after deployment to initialize the system.
- Before you enable the out-of-the-box (OOTB) dashboards, set the default data source in Reporting Engine configuration page.
- If you reboot the Packet Decoder instance, the tunnel is not retained. Create the tunnel on Packet Decoder again and restart the decoder service.
- Always use private IP addresses when you provision AWS NetWitness Suite instances.
Note: If you assign a public IP to the Netwitness Server Host, update the /etc/nginx/conf.d/nginx.conf configuration file as follows:
index index.html index.htm;
allow <Subnet-Gateway>/Subnet mask ;
# allow 10.0.0.1/25;
