I would need some guidance on enabling Aide on AHV and CVM and strong password policy for the hardening.
I found the guide on this link: Hardening Controller VM
If I enable the AIDE on AHV and CVM. Is there anything need to be done? Additional appliance to deploy?

Does enable AIDE means it will install the AIDE package on the AHV and CVM if I enable on AIDE on both of them?
Hi swee han,
Thank you for raising the question. The paragraph could be worded better, especially this part “The following options are configured or customized to harden the AHV:”
Essentially, what happens is running those ncli commands will put aide script into cron tab to be run weekly. It already is running the --init command to initialize the DB if non-existing, and then running --check to validate the files and output to a log file.
There is no additional appliance needed to enable AIDE on AHV or CVM.
