Ubuntu Installation Guide

To install the N2C5 EDR Analytics Module, ensure the prerequisites are met and then follow these steps.

Installation Steps

  1. Copy the EDR Analytics package file onto the target machine. The package file will be named similar to n2edra_1.0.0-1_all.deb.

  2. Install nessary support packages. This must only be done the first time the package is installed. The required packages are:

    libclone-perl
    libdatetime-format-strptime
    libdbd-pg-perl
    libdbi-perl
    postgresql
    liblog-log4perl-perl
    libjson-perl
    

    If the target server has access to a package repository, this can be done with the following command:

    apt-get install libdbd-pg-perl libdbi-perl postgresql liblog-log4perl-perl libjson-perl
    

    Without repository access, the above packages and their dependencies will need to be installed manually.

  3. Install the package copied:

    sudo dpkg --install n2edra_1.0.0-1_all.deb
    
  4. Edit the n2edra configuration, updating all sections as necessary. See the configuration guide for details.

    vi /etc/n2edra/n2edra.xml
    
  5. Create the database. Full database installation instructions may be found at /usr/share/n2edra/db/README.txt

  6. Restart the n2edra_etl process by running the following commands:

    sudo stop n2edra
    sudo start n2edra
