System Requirements

This document lists the supported distributions and operating systems (OSs) for the F5 Distributed Cloud App Infrastructure Protection (AIP) Linux Agent and the Windows Agent. Please ensure your environment is compatible with the supported distributions or OSs.

Important

Due to a known Linux limitation, only one audit socket can be opened at a time to connect to the kernel’s audit system. As a result, any applications that create audit sockets, such as auditd.service, conflict with the App Infrastructure Protection (Distributed Cloud AIP) Agent over access to the audit system. Please ensure that auditd.service is disabled in your environment or the Distributed Cloud AIP Agent will not function as expected.

If you need to continue using auditd.service, then we suggest this workaround.
