How to update the geolocation ip in the solution RSA AAoP 7.0#
We have this documented in RSA Adaptive Authentication (on Premise) Operations Guide Chapter 10, page 171 (Install the new geoip file).If you do not have the chance to download the guide here is the outline.
To install the new GeoIP file:
1. In BackOffice Administration Console, in the External Data Providers component, under the General section, in the Staging Directory Name field, you can define the staging directory.Note: All cluster nodes must have the same path to the staging directory.
2. Copy the new GeoIP database file, geoip_MAXMIND_version number.dat or geoip_MAXMIND_with_ipv6_version number.dat, to this directory.Note: Do not delete your old GeoIP file. You can use the old file for rolling back this update or for any additional regression testing.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for each cluster node.
4. Using the Administration Console, type a new GeoIP active data filename in the Active Data File field. For more information, see “External Data ProvidersParameters” on page 55.
5. Click Save.
6. Click Publish.
Note: It takes approximately 15 minutes for the changes to take effect.
This automatically installs the new GeoIP data and loads the data to the active database. The old file, geoip_MAXMIND_version number.dat or geoip_MAXMIND_with_ipv6_version number.dat, is moved to the archive directory that was specified in your configuration files. The newly archived file, geoip_MAXMIND_version number.dat or geoip_MAXMIND_with_ipv6_version number.dat, is given an additional extension (geoip_MAXMIND_version number.dat.xxxxxx or geoip_MAXMIND_with_ipv6_version number.dat.xxxxxx), where xxxx is the current time stamp represented as milliseconds from 1/1/1970.
For detailed information we highly recommend you download the guide and use it as reference.
