Beginning with CB Protection 8.1.4, the rules that govern agent behavior have their own Rules Installer, separate from the CB Protection Server installation. As we make improvements to the rules, we can now make new versions available without requiring a server upgrade. New Rules Installers will be posted on the Carbon Black User Exchange.
Important: You must install at least version 8.1.4 CB Protection Server before using the Rules Installer. The Rules Installer is not compatible with versions of the CB Protection Server prior to 8.1.4. Please see the “Uploading Agent Installer and Rules to the Server” chapter in the CB Protection 8.6.0 User Guide for more details.
Customers who are performing a fresh (non-upgrade) installation of the CB Protection Server will need to install the Rules Installer before deploying agents. For customers upgrading the CB Protection Server, we strongly recommend that you install the latest Rules Installer after the server upgrade.
The current version of the Rules Installer is version 1.8
