Environmental security limitations
All supported DX NetOps Performance Management releases
This is an Enhancement Request. It has been submitted to Vertica support who are working with their engineering team to develop a solution that would resolve this.
The solution would be added to a future Vertica release that is yet to be determined.
When that release of Vertica is available with the new feature the DX NetOps Performance Management engineering team will at that time consider an upgrade to the version of the Vertica database in use.
NOTE: At this time a break in the Vertica FIPS functionality prevents an upgrade to the Vertica release used in the DX NetOps Performance Management Data Repository Vertica database. Due a number of customers utilizing that functionality, until a solution is available in a newer Vertica release, the Vertica version will not be updated. At the time of this being written on 2021-01-22 there is no fix for the FIPS issue in the latest Vertica releases.
This article will be updated as new information becomes available.
