RSA Security Analytics Warehouse Challenges

Hello All,


Hope you are doing well. Well on the demand on one of my customer for experiencing the Warehouse feature of RSA SA. I have a POC of RSA SA. So due to this I am creating an lab which includes the SAW component integrated with RSA SA. I am facing challenges while deploying the SAW. Below I am writing few points to better understand my situation.


Details Of A RSA SAW Setup


1) First I have an OVF of RSA SAW on 10.3.2 and I have a lab based on 10.4.02. So just want to confirm is it will create any problem to setup the SAW with RSA SA?


2) Do I need to deploy three separate OVF on my ESXi to get these into a cluster, so that they can become a collectivity make a SAW. Seriously is their any requirement to add the three nodes?


3) After a word with RSA CS, I get an one more confusion that I need to add an extra disk drives into separate SAW node?

Is it really required?


4) For deployment of RSA SAW in my environment, I get an temp licenses from the sales dept of RSA. So have a doubt is it will run? or do I need an permanent license to get it registered and perfectly working with SA.


5) As I refer to documents for SAW, I also require any upgrade package, an RPM file, so that I can upgrade my SAW nodes to the latest version.

If the above point is not feasible, so I can upgrade my SAW nodes to the latest version through the yum-update command? Is it will be a right method to get  it upgraded?


6) According to a video available on BrainShark in RSATube, that we need to deploy the license through the commands.

This is the command to get the SAW licensed "maprcli license add –is_file true –license {license file name}".

Or can we add a temp license on SAW through UI with the latest option available on SA to upload a temp license on any of the appliance.

What method I need to follow?


And also during the licensing process on SAW node 1 through command shell, I am facing some challenges in it.


If someone have any idea, that how to achieve the deployment of SAW, kindly suggest their suggestions and views here. That will be a great help for me, as I am not getting the proper answer on my queries from the support.


Thanks to all in advance.
