Carbon Black Cloud: Unable to Upgrade from 3.5.0.x on Windows Server 2019
Carbon Black Cloud Windows Sensor: 22.214.171.1240 - 126.96.36.1991
Windows Server 2019
Upgrade from 3.5.0.x on Windows Server 2019 and upgrade will fail
If "Sensor UI: Detail message" is enabled in the policy, the Sensor UI icon will no longer appear in the Taskbar System Tray
The device will no longer check-in to the Carbon Black Cloud Console.
The Carbon Black Cloud Sensor service (Display name: Cb Defense) may no longer show as started
Issue occurs because the ctinet driver does not unload properly during sensor shutdown
Carbon Black has created a fix to resolve the driver unload hang when upgrading in sensor version(s) 188.8.131.523 and 184.108.40.2061 and above; however there is no way to backport this fix into any prior sensor versions.
To workaround this issue in any prior sensor version please follow the steps below:
Place the sensor into bypass
Reboot the Windows 2019 server
Although Carbon Black is unable to reproduce the issue internally, we were able to identify the code path resulting in this issue as well as the fix
If Sensor has already been upgraded from the impacted versions and the above issue has been observed, the Sensor Removal Tool (SRT) may be required to cleanup the existing installation, and install the latest sensor version
