Issue/Introduction

Security scans keep flagging our Data Repositories on port 5444 for SSL certificate violation.

Environment

Release : 19.1

Component : CA Performance Center

Resolution

This port is only used by the Vertica agent and only needed by The Management Console (MC) which is not installed by default. You can just disable the agent and the scan should pass with no changes in functionality.  

systemctl stop vertica_agent
systemctl disable vertica_agent

Note: This may get turned back on after upgrades of Vertica, so you might need disable it again after an upgrade.
