These scripts are designed to run on CentOS 6 only. The scripts must be executed on CentOS 6 machines.
The backup and restore scripts do not support backup and restore for STIG or FIPS hardened hosts. The only workaround is to backup before hardening the appliance, and after a restore harden the appliance again.
The restore script is only supported for NetWitness 10.6.2.0 to 10.6.6.x.
Note: The nw-backup-v4.3, supersedes all previous nw-backup versions.
nw-backup-v4.3 can be used to:
a. Backup and restore NetWitness 10.6.2.0 to 10.6.6.x.
b. Upgrade NetWitness version 10.6.6.x to NetWitness 11.x.
The documentation on how to use the scripts and the file nw-backup-v4.3.zip is
available for download on the RSA Link website:
