Issue/Introduction

Our security scans flagged python on our systems where we have Data Repository (3 separate nodes).

We would like to know if we can upgrade python itself or it's related and connected to CAPM version.

Cause

Vertica uses Python and installs a version under

/opt/vertica

Environment

Release : 21.2.3+

Component : IM Data Repository

Resolution

You cannot upgrade the bundled python manually

If it is within /opt/vertica/ then you may not upgrade or modify it.

 

If it is outside of that path, then PM is not affected by the install, and you can upgrade or remove it as you need.

 

Additional Information

Dx NetOps performance management 21.2.3+ ships with python 3.7.4
