Issue/Introduction

What are the configuration parameters for enabling a Endace card on a Symantec DLP Network Monitor

Resolution

There are several configuration items in the Advanced Server Details that will affect Monitor installations with Endace cards.

PacketCapture.IS_ENDACE_ENABLED uses the value 'true' to enable a dag card.

  • Any new installation should set PacketCapture.IS_ENDACE_ENABLED to the value 'true' to enable an Endace card.
  • Any upgraded system with an endace card should continue to work correctly without altering any settings.

The other three directives involve defining the path for the Endace drivers.

PacketCapture.ENDACE_BIN_PATH

default should be:

For Windows:
 %dagpath%

For Linux:
/usr/local/bin

PacketCapture.ENDACE_LIB_PATH

default should be:

For Windows:
%dagpath%\..\lib

For Linux:
/usr/local/lib

PacketCapture.ENDACE_XILINX_PATH

default should be:

For Windows:
%dagpath%\..\xilinx

For Linux:
/usr/local/dag/xilinx

NOTE:  %VAR% variables CANNOT be used for the parameters

NOTE: PacketCapture.IS_INPUT_SOURCE_FILE has been deprecated for enabling a dag card in 8.0.
