LCE Server Installation

Before You Begin

Before beginning the LCE server installation, it is important to understand the high-level steps required to facilitate a successful installation. Before installing the LCE server, you must install the dependencies. For more information, please refer to the Software Requirements.

These steps are typically performed in the following order:

  1. Download the LCE server package, and then confirm the integrity of the package by comparing the MD5 checksum with the one listed in the product release notes. Before installing the LCE server, you must install the software it is dependent on.

    Tip: After downloading the LCE server package, you can view information about the software the server is dependent on by using the following command:

    # rpm -qip <LCE rpm>

    ...where <LCE rpm> is the path to and filename of the package you downloaded. For example, /tmp/lce-5.0.0-el6.x86_64.rpm.

  2. Download and install Java Runtime Environment.
  3. Download and install Elasticsearch.
  4. Install the LCE server.

  5. Copy the activation code from the Your Registered Products page of the Tenable Support Portal.

  6. Using a web browser, navigate to the address or hostname of the LCE server on port 8836 (https://<ip or hostname>:8836), and complete the Quick Setup wizard.

    Tip: Ensure that the firewall on the system allows TCP traffic through port 8836, otherwise the web UI will be inaccessible. For example, iptables or firewalld may be blocking port 8836 by default. A full list of required ports is included in the Software Requirements.

  7. Add the LCE server to SecurityCenter.
