This topic contains the rules and high-level tasks you must follow to deploy RSA NetWitness Platform components in the AWS.


You must adhere to the following rules when deploying NetWitness Platform in AWS.

  • SSH to the NetWitness Platform 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 Platform 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:
location /nwrpmrepo
alias /var/lib/netwitness/common/repo;
index index.html index.htm;
allow <Subnet-Gateway>/Subnet mask ;
# allow;
deny all;
autoindex on;
