Backing up a Netwitness Deployment where direct root login is not allowed

Hello

Is there an official RSA backup script that will allow us to backup systems where direct root login is not allowed?

 

In common with many enterprises and as a good security policy, direct root login via SSH has been disabled and it is first necessary to login as a non root user and then "su" to the root user with a password.

 

The current official backup and restore scripts require that ssh keys are set up between the backup server and each appliance in order for the backup to work. This is not allowed.

 

The best way around this would be a script that works as a cronjob on each appliance.

Does an official script exist?
