Carbon Black Alliance Feeds are not present

Carbon Black Alliance Feeds are not present


This solution applies to all Carbon Black versions.



From the Carbon Black UI: Administration -> Alliance Feeds -> the message is displayed: "No configured feeds."



From the Carbon Black Enterprise Server, the following is present in the logs /var/log/cb/allianceclient/allianceclient.log:

May 13 09:44:20 [1563] <err> cb.alliance.client -

ConnectionError: HTTPSConnectionPool(host='', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /api/v1/reputation/module/meta (Caused by <class 'socket.gaierror'>: [Errno -2] Name or service not known)



The "Max retries exceeded" message for the URL "" could not be reached due to no internet access from the Enterprise Server. It is a requirement that internet access is available, either directly or by proxy.



To resolve the issue, either:

  1. Allow direct internet access from the Enterprise Server, or
  2. If the Enterprise server resides within a DMZ, allow internet access by configuring a proxy: Carbon Black - How to configure a web proxy.


Important Note(s)

Also note that internet access is required on the Enterprise server for installation, and performing any Carbon Black upgrade.
