[Cb Response] Announcing the General Availability of the server version 6.2.3 and Win sensor 6.1.7 for On-prem Customers
The Cb Response Team is pleased to announce the General Availability of the 6.2.3 version of the Server on August 15, 2018. This is a maintenance release addressing bug fixes and stability enhancements. A few things to bring to your attention:
We’ve added support for CentOS 7 for net-new installs!
We've also added support for CentOS 6.10
We’ve enhanced query functionality from the UI, allowing blocking of some resource intensive queries. This feature only applies to query run through the console, and will not impact queries run from the API. The Blocking Setting will be on by Default, and can be disabled by Global Admins in the Settings menu. If a search is blocked, you'll see a red pop-up in the upper-right hand corner of the screen.
Additionally, watchlist enhancements include feedback in the UI if a watchlist times out.
We’ve made other small Improvements and bug fixes throughout the product.
The Cb Response team is excited to announce the first step in providing CentOS/RHEL 7 support. Starting with the 6.2.3 release of the server, Customers will have the option to install a net-new server on CentOS/RHEL 7.3. There a few things to note with the initial support of CentOS/RHEL 7.
This initial release is for net-new installations only. There is no migration path from CentOS 6 to CentOS 7 in the 6.2.3 release. We will be providing a migration tool in the future.
We have qualified version CentOS/RHEL 7.3 for the initial release. Future releases will qualify addition versions in CentOS/RHEL 7-series.
Cb Response still supports CentOS 6.7 - 6.10, and there no plans to remove support for the CentOS 6-series OS.
Updated Yum Links
In order to support the delivery of multiple versions of the 6.2.3 server, we’ve updated our Yum links. Our yum links now use variables to dynamically build the link and pull the correct version of the server for the OS your machine is running. This means that if you access the yum repo from a CentOS6 machine, you will pull the version of the server for CentOS6. If you access the same link, but from a CentOS7 machine, you will pull the version of the server for CentOS7. Links before looked like this:
