SELinux policy configuration is supported by Tenable in a “Permissive” mode.

Tip: Other SELinux modes are known to work, but the required configuration varies based on policies and custom configurations that may be in place on-site. It is strongly recommended that SELinux implementation configurations are tested prior to deployment on a live network.


Note: Either OpenJDK or the Oracle Java JRE along with their accompanying dependencies must be installed on the system along with any additional Java installations removed for reporting to function properly.

Note:Tenable does not recommend forcing the installation without all required dependencies. If your version of Red Hat or CentOS is missing certain dependencies, it will cause problems that are not readily apparent with a wide variety of functions. Tenable Support has observed different types of failure modes for when dependencies are missing.

All dependencies must be installed on the system prior to installing or updating While they are not all required by the installation RPM file, some functionality may not work properly if the packages are not installed.

Note: Using the latest stable production version of each package is recommended.
