App Control: How to Update the Server Address or Port on an Agent (macOS)

App Control: How to Update the Server Address or Port on an Agent (macOS)

Environment

  • App Control Agent: All Supported Versions
  • macOS: All Supported Versions

Objective

To modify the macOS Agent to use a new Server Address and/or Port Number.

Resolution

  1. Open a Terminal and issue the following commands:
    cd /Applications/Bit9/Tools/
    ./b9cli --password GlobalCLIPassword
    ./b9cli --tamperprotect 0
    ./b9cli --setserver <new server address> <new server port>
  2. Verify the changes by issuing the command:
    ./b9cli --status
  3. If necessary, restart the Agent:
    sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.bit9.Daemon.plist
    sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.bit9.Daemon.plist
    
    

Additional Notes

  • These steps are not intended to be used to migrate Agents from one Console to another, only for changes to the Server Address or Port Number
  • Verify Tamper Protection is enabled after completing the changes.
