Hi larry

Thank you for updating to reflect CbP8.1.0 status.

But, shouldn't the Windows Server 2016 support be shown as '8.0.0 - 8.1.0' and not 8.1.0 only?

Regards,

  Haro

Yea my concern is same, we also Deployed 8.0 server as well as agents on Windows Server 2016.

You are absolutely right haro​.  Thank you for bringing that oversight to my attention!

I realize it's still in preview but, is CB Defense sensor version 3.2.X supported in Windows Server 2019? 

It would be great if there was a single downloadable file that contained the supported agent information for all operating systems.  

Windows 2003 is not supported by CBr sensors 6.2.1, it is supported up until 6.1.9 with the only condition to (request to) enable TLS 1.0 on the CBr (cloud) server.

Is there a timeframe for when Cb Protection will be supported on Server 2016 Core and Server 2019 Core?

Is 8.1.5 supported on 2003/2003 R2?

@djay and or @gorlando  - 8.1.5 Agent needs reflected in this doc too.

 

Thank you!

are we supporting windows 2000 server as well

@vijaysingh Server 2000 is not a supported operating system.

I don't see CBP Windows Agent 8.1.6 anywhere, I assume that is supported.

2008r2 and higher is x64 only. Microsoft stopped releasing 32bit versions of Windows Server since server 2008r2 in 2010.

Is 8.1.10 compatible with Server 2003?  We are seeing some issues with upgrading from 8.1.8 to 8.1.10 and would like to ensure it isn't a compatibility issue before taking intrusive measures.

Are "Datacenter" versions considered the same as normal versions?

I guess it is. But "Server Core" versions are mentioned separately in the above table, so I'd like to ask for clarifications on "Datacenter" versions.

Thank you very much.

@cfsup - It sounds like Datacenter 2008 R2 at least does need some special handling.

We have a support case open regarding issues observed with Datacenter 2008 R2 servers specifically, and learned that these should not be running sensor versions newer than 7.0.1. That is something I hadn't seen called out in documentation above, or on similar page https://community.carbonblack.com/t5/Documentation-Downloads/Carbon-Black-EDR-Supported-Versions-Gri...

(as of 3/15/2021 anyway... hopefully some clarification is forthcoming.)
