1.0 What’s New?

The following sections outline the key features and enhancements, and also the issues resolved in this release:

1.1 New Certified Platforms

Sentinel now certifies the following platforms:

  • Elasticsearch 5.0 for Sentinel Scalable Data Manager

  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 12 SP2 64-bit

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (RHEL) 7.3 64-bit

For more information about the certified platforms, see the Technical Information for Sentinel web page.

1.2 Security Vulnerability Fixes

Sentinel 8.0 SP1 resolves the following security vulnerabilities, which were discovered by Jacob Baines from Tenable Network Security:

  • Account enumeration (CVE-2017-5184)

  • Remote denial-of-service (CVE-2017-5185)

  • Java Deserialization (CVE-2016-1000031)

We would like to offer our thanks to Jacob Baines for finding and reporting these security vulnerabilities to us.

1.3 Enhanced Keystore Security

Sentinel now provides the script that allows you to change the keystore passwords.

As a security best practice, NetIQ recommends that you change the keystore passwords immediately after upgrading to Sentinel 8.0 SP1.

Perform the following procedure to change the keystore passwords:

  1. Log in to the Sentinel server as the novell user.

  2. Go to the /opt/novell/sentinel/bin directory.

  3. Run the script and follow the on-screen prompts to change the keystore passwords.

  4. (Conditional) If you are using Sentinel Plug-ins SDK to create reports, perform the steps specified in NetIQ Knowledgebase Article 7018370.

(Bug 1000651 and Bug 881263)

1.4 Separate Log Files for Performance Snapshots

Performance Snapshot log entries are an important source for troubleshooting since they record key performance indicators over time. These log entries are written to the server.log files, which might be rolling over so often that the system performance snapshots are lost.

To prevent the loss of performance snapshot information among large numbers of other messages in the server.log files, the performance snapshot log entries have been moved to their own log files. By default, Sentinel writes the performance snapshot entries to rolling log files and stores these files in the /var/opt/novell/sentinel/log/ directory with the name performance_snapshot%u.%g.log.

1.5 Java Runtime Environment Upgrade

Sentinel includes Java 8 update121, which includes fixes for several security vulnerabilities.

1.6 Customize the Event Limit to Export from Search Results

By default, you can export 200,000 events from search results to a CSV file. You can now customize the number of events you want to export from the search results.

To customize the event limit:

  1. Log in to the Sentinel server as the novell user.

  2. Open the /etc/opt/novell/sentinel/config/ file.

  3. Add the property and set the desired value.

    NOTE:If the value is too high, there may be system performance issues.

  4. Restart the Sentinel server.

1.7 Software Fixes

Sentinel 8.0 SP1 includes software fixes that resolve several issues.

Errors in SSDM Event Visualization Dashboards and Searches After Installing Elasticsearch Security Plug-In

Issue: In an RPM based installation of Elasticsearch, Event Visualization dashboards and searches in SSDM do not work. (Bug 1014448)

Fix: Event Visualization dashboards and searches in SSDM now work.

Cannot Set the Count Value in Structured Correlation Rules to More Than 100

Issue: The Count value for structured correlation rules is limited to 100. (Bug 1021630)

Fix: The Count value limit for structured correlation rules has been increased to 2147483647.

Sentinel Main Interface Does Not Start

Issue: Sentinel Main interface does not start. The server logs display the following error:

Too many open files
ERROR: Out of file descriptors. Waiting one second before trying to accept more connections.

This issue occurs because the default operating system soft limit is 1024, which is less and results in too many open connections. (Bug 1023410)

Fix: Sentinel increases the operating system soft limit to 32768.

Sentinel Does Not Retain Collector Manager and Event Source Server Selections When You Log off and Log in

Issue: If you select more than one Collector Manager or Event Source Sever in the Collection > Event Sources page in the Sentinel Main interface, Sentinel does not save these selections when you log off and log in again. (Bug 1006730)

Fix: Sentinel now saves the event source selections correctly.

Anomaly Detection Notification Emails Do Not Display Time in Local Time Zone of the Sentinel Server

Issue: When an anomaly triggers, the notification email that is sent contains the anomaly trigger time in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), and not in local time zone of the Sentinel server. (Bug 996559)

Fix: Anomaly detection notification emails now contain time in local time zone of the Sentinel server.

Sentinel Never Cleans Up the Event Associations Data

Issue: Sentinel does not clean up the event associations data present in the exported associations directory. As a result, the directory increases in size and might cause performance issues. (Bug 891686)

Fix: Sentinel now retains the event associations data that is present in the exported associations directory (/var/opt/novell/sentinel/data/eventdata/exported_associations) for 14 days by default. However, you can change this retention period.

Perform the following steps to change the event associations data retention period:

  1. Log in to the Sentinel server as the novell user.

  2. Open the /etc/opt/novell/sentinel/config/ file.

  3. Add the following line in the file:

    sentinel.exportedAssociations.retention.period=<retention period>

    For example, if you want to set the Export Association files retention period to 90 days:


  4. Save the modified file.

  5. Restart Sentinel.

Data Synchronization to Oracle 11g Does Not Work

Issue: Data synchronization to the Oracle 11g database does not work after upgrading Sentinel to version. This issue occurs because the Message (msg) event field size was increased from 4000 to 8000 characters in Sentinel and Oracle 11g supports a maximum of 4000 characters. (Bug 1021125)

Fix: Run a script on the Oracle 11g table to change the Message field data type to nclob, which supports more than 4000 characters. For more information, see the Knowledge Base article.

Sentinel Does Not Handle Negative Numbers in Event Routing Rule Criteria Correctly

Issue: If you specify a negative number range as the event routing rule criteria where both the numbers in the range are negative (example: (cv1:[-2000000000 TO -500])), Sentinel does not process the rule and displays the following error:

Error FILT0001(Filter): Error occurred while retrieving global filters. 

(Bug 1018620)

Fix: Sentinel now handles negative numbers in the event routing rule criteria correctly.

Sentinel Displays Timeout Exceptions When Retrieving Raw Data Retention Size

Issue: Sentinel tries to retrieve the Raw Data Retention size in the Storage > Event user interface every 30 minutes. When there is a large number of rawdata_archive subdirectories, Sentinel takes a long time to retrieve the Raw Data Retention size and displays timeout exceptions. (Bug 983554)

Fix: Sentinel retrieves the Raw Data Retention size more efficiently. You can also set the threshold for the network storage size such that if it exceeds the threshold, Sentinel will not attempt to retrieve the Raw Data Retention size. By default, the threshold is 5000000000000 (5 TB).

You can change the threshold as follows

  1. Log in to the Sentinel server as a novell user.

  2. Open the /etc/opt/novell/sentinel/config/ file.

  3. Update the value of the diskstatistics.du.threshold property as required.

  4. Restart the Sentinel server.

Sentinel Does Not Populate ObserverEventTime and SentinelProcessTime for Internal Events

Issue: Sentinel populates internal events only with the EventTime (dt) and not the ObserverEventTime (det) and SentinelProcessTime (spt) values. (Bug 1012776)

Fix: Sentinel now populates internal events with the ObserverEventTime (det) and SentinelProcessTime (spt) values.

Sentinel Displays the Minimum Disk Space Not Available Message When the Storage is Almost Full

Issue: Sentinel displays the following message in the audit logs when only 5 GB of the storage space is free, which is a short notice for users to take any action:

Minimum disk space configured for PersistQueue (107 GB) is not available.

(Bug 1008357)

Fix: Sentinel now displays the message when 5% of the overall storage is available. For example, if the storage size is 1 TB, Sentinel displays the message when there is only 50 GB left in the storage.

Scheduled Reports Display Incorrect Report Date in Email

Issue: Scheduled reports display incorrect report date in the email body. (Bug 1020988)

Fix: Scheduled reports now display the correct report date in email.

Cannot Receive Events from NetIQ eDirectory

Issue: NetIQ eDirectory Instrumentation cannot connect to Audit Connector through Platform Agent. As a result, Sentinel cannot receive events from eDirectory. This issue occurs because eDirectory Instrumentation uses MD5 RSA certificate algorithm, which has been deprecated in Java 8 update 77 used in Sentinel 8.0.1. (Bug 985312)

Fix: eDirectory Instrumentation connects to Audit Connector through Platform Agent.

2.0 System Requirements

(Bug 913014)

Workaround: To fix this issue, manually change the maximum size of the IP address fields to at least 46 characters in the target database, and re-synchronize the database.

4.17 Event Search Does Not Respond if You Do Not Have Any Event Viewing Permissions

Issue: If you run an event search when your role's security filter is blank and your role does not have event viewing permissions, the search does not complete. The search does not display any error message about the invalid event viewing permissions. (Bug 908666)

Workaround: Update the role with one of the following options:

  1. Specify criteria in the Only events matching the criteria field. If users in the role should not see any events, you can enter NOT sev:[0 TO 5].

  2. Select View system events.

  3. Select View all event data (including raw data and NetFlow data).

4.18 The Event fields Panel is Missing in the Schedule Page When Editing Some Saved Searches

Issue: When editing a saved search upgraded from Sentinel 7.2 to a later version, the Event fields panel, used to specify output fields in the search report CSV, is missing in the schedule page. (Bug 900293)

Workaround: After upgrading Sentinel, recreate and reschedule the search to view the Event fields panel in the schedule page.

4.19 Sentinel Does Not Return Any Correlated Events When You Search for Events for the Deployed Rule with the Default Fire Count Search

Issue: Sentinel does not return any correlated events when you search for all correlated events that were generated after the rule was deployed or enabled, by clicking the icon next to Fire count in the Activity statistics panel in the Correlation Summary page for the rule. (Bug 912820)

Workaround: Change the value in the From field in the Event Search page to a time earlier than the populated time in the field and click Search again.

4.20 Security Intelligence Dashboard Displays Invalid Baseline Duration When Regenerating a Baseline

Issue: During Security Intelligence baseline regeneration, the start and finish dates for the baseline are incorrect and display 1/1/1970. (Bug 912009)

Workaround: The correct dates are updated after the baseline regeneration is complete.

4.21 Sentinel Server Shuts Down When Running a Search If There Are Large Number of Events in a Single Partition

Issue: Sentinel server shuts down when you run a search if there are a large number of events indexed in a single partition. (Bug 913599)

Workaround: Create retention policies in such a way that there are at least two partitions open in a day. Having more than one partition open helps reduce the number of events indexed in partitions.

You can create retention policies that filter events based on the estzhour field, which tracks the hour of the day. Therefore, you can create one retention policy with estzhour:[0 TO 11] as the filter and another retention policy with estzhour:[12 TO 23] as the filter.

For more information, see Configuring Data Retention Policies in the NetIQ Sentinel Administration Guide.

4.22 Error While Using the Script to Configure Sentinel Ports for Firewall Exceptions on Upgraded Sentinel Appliance Installations

Workaround: Click the second report result PDF again to view the report result.

4.27 Agent Manager Requires SQL Authentication When FIPS 140-2 Mode is Enabled

Issue: When FIPS 140-2 mode is enabled in your Sentinel environment, using Windows authentication for Agent Manager causes synchronization with the Agent Manager database to fail. (Bug 814452)

Workaround: Use SQL authentication for Agent Manager when FIPS 140-2 mode is enabled in your Sentinel environment.

4.28 Sentinel High Availability Installation in Non-FIPS 140-2 Mode Displays an Error

Issue: The Sentinel High Availability installation in non-FIPS 140-2 mode completes successfully but displays the following error twice:

/opt/novell/sentinel/setup/ line 1045: [: too many arguments 

(Bug 810764)

Workaround: The error is expected and you can safely ignore it. Although the installer displays the error, the Sentinel High Availability configuration works successfully in non-FIPS 140-2 mode.

4.29 Active Search Jobs Duration and Accessed Columns Inaccuracies

Issue: The Sentinel Main interface displays negative numbers in the Active Search Job Duration and Accessed columns when the Sentinel Main interface computer clock is behind the Sentinel server clock.
