Installing minemeld on a supported Operating system ubuntu 18.04 or 20.04

L0 Member

Due to security requirements, we cannot run an unsupported operating system, however we need to install Minemeld to update office365 lists. 

Ubuntu 16.04 is unsupported as of April 2021.

 

Is there support for or an install method that works on Ubuntu 18.04lts or 20.04lts?

 

If you did get it working properly on a newer OS how did you do it? 

 

I see a large number of people asking these questions but I don't see any valid answers to them. 

 

Thanks!

Hey @jstine2 , @Ramakrishnan , @KPMG_NZ 

 

It is very sad that after Palo Alto stop supporting MineMeld and leave it to the open community there is no development and unfortunately I am guessing it will die soon.

 

However have you consider running MineMeld in Docker container?

We have setup new MineMeld following the above steps couple of months ago and it is working flawlessly, but again...At this moment there is no one to maintain MineMeld 😞

One importent notice I forgot to mention - if you need MineMeld only for Office365 or any of the Public cloud provider, you can may also consider using the EDL services provided by Palo Alto -  https://saasedl.paloaltonetworks.com/feeds.html

I haven't personaly used them yet, but hope they will stat longer than MineMeld.

We are in the same boat, we need to install Minemeld on 20.04 LTS but it requires libleveldb1v5 and I believe this package doesn't exist anymore so I cannot proceed further.
