Nutanix NDB Security Document Version 2.2

The Era Security document has been updated to reflect a Database Instance Account management  improvement that was included in the Era version 2.4 but unfortunately missed in the previous document update.

Since Era version 2.4 it is supported to update the DB engine PostgreSQL database user (postgres) password for the database instance. After the password has been changed, managed outside of Era, you run the following Era CLI command:

era > database update creds id=<> username=<> set_password

No other updates to the document which still includes the following sections:

  • Era Architecture
  • Accounts
  • Authentication
  • Entity Sharing
  • Firewall
  • Network Placement
  • Patch Management
  • Role Based Access Control (RBAC)
  • Secure Socket Layer (SSL)
