Known issues

Date filed Issue number Description
2018-09-11 ADDON-19506 New connections fail with "REST API ERROR 400" or "Fatal error: glibc detected an invalid stdio handle" on Linux with a glibc version higher than 2.17-196

Workaround:
1. Download [1]

2. replace $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/Splunk_TA_checkpoint-opseclea/bin/opsec-tools binaries with the updated versions.

3. After you update the two binaries, you must reset the one time password.

2018-05-14 ADDON-18066 64bit systems: Unable to establish SIC due to Glibc errors

Workaround:
We consider the syslog approach a better strategy than the current OPSEC LEA add-on given the current limitations of this 3rd party tool regarding newer versions of RHEL/CentOS. It should be rather straight forward to get the log export utility installed, open the needed ports and configure the input. We aren't sure if they have normalization ready yet but, we will look into that further.
2017-03-26 ADDON-14240 The 'product' field is missing in some firewall events related to environment operations (example: logswitch, policy install/uninstall)
2017-03-21 ADDON-14201 Several products are not covered in loggrabber product filter logic
2017-03-19 ADDON-14171 Server name is not supported as orig filter

Workaround:
Use Ip address for orig values
2017-03-19 ADDON-14170 "Non-Audit" and "Firewall Audit" Events with no products won't be indexed when NOT IN product list is provided
2016-09-09 ADDON-11246 SHA1 is not supported

Workaround:
File a ticket with Splunk support to request version 3.1 of the add-on, which has SHA1 support.
2016-06-05 ADDON-10038, ADDON-13450 Enabled input will block app upgrade

Workaround:
Disable this add-on before upgrading and enable it after upgrading done.
2016-05-31 ADDON-9779 Error message occurs in log files when TA is installed without a configured connection
2016-05-27 ADDON-9728 Conflict "action" field value for eventtype "opsec_audit_authentication" mapped both to CIM: Authentication and Change Analysis
2016-05-24 ADDON-9680 Some vendor_action values are not in the lookup table "checkpoint_opsec_actions.csv" for eventtype "opsec_communicate"
2015-10-13 ADDON-8017 Numeric value misinterpreted

Workaround:
Convert bytes related values to INT_MAX(2147483647) if they're negative by EVAL.

If you extract the field, the negative value will switch to the positive value.
