App Control: How To Upload Rule and Agent Packages to the Server

App Control: How To Upload Rule and Agent Packages to the Server

Environment

  • App Control Console: All Supported Versions
  • Rules Installer: All Supported Versions
  • Agent Installer: All Supported Versions

Objective

To install Rule and Agent Packages via the App Control Console.

Resolution

  1. Log in to the VMware Carbon Black User Exchange.
  2. Navigate to the Release Information and Downloads section of the VMware Docs site for App Control.
  3. Download and extract the latest Rules and/or Agent Installers.
    • Rules Installer  RulesInstaller_VERSION.exe
    • Windows Agent Installer - WindowsHostPackageInstaller_VERSION.exe
    • Mac Agent Installer - MacHostPackageInstaller_VERSION.exe
    • Linux Agent Installer - LinuxHostPackageInstaller_VERSION.exe
  4. Log in to the App Control Console.
  5. Navigate to gear icon > Update Agent/Rule Versions.
  6. Drag and drop (or browse to) the extracted executable for the files (in order):
    • Rules Installer
    • Agent Installers
  7. Confirm the relevant Installer has updated by navigating to: https://ServerAddress/InstallerVersions.php
Note: The App Control Server will require full validation of the Code Signing & Counter Signing certificates associated with the Agent/Rule Installers. If your application server cannot complete these Certificate Revocation List checks you will need to follow the process here.

Additional Notes

  • Updating the Agent/Rule Installers will require restarting of the App Control Server service. During this process access to the Console will temporarily be unavailable.
  • Do not navigate away from the Update Agent/Rule Versions page while uploads are processing.
  • If using Unified Management to manage multiple App Control Servers: New Rule and Agent Installers must be uploaded to each server separately. The Management Server does not broadcast these packages to the Managed Servers.
