Topic

This document provides information on how to verify that Cb Defense sensor is actively running on a Mac system.

Steps

1) Confirm that "repmgr" is running and the CB Defense Sensor drivers are loaded:
From macOS command line type:

kextstat | grep confer

The output should look similar to the following. The empty boxes are for Username Anonymity.

2) ConferSystemTray performs several functions and it continues to run even if the local Sensor UI is disabled. This means that the end user cannot access the local Sensor UI, but the ConferSystemTray process still runs. One of the functions is proxy detection in the context of logged in user, so it needs to run even if the local Sensor UI is disabled. To confirm repmgr (CB Defense Sensor service) is running

sudo launchctl list | grep confer

The output should look similar to the following. The empty boxes are for Username Anonymity.

Important Note(s)

Verification that the CB Defense Sensor is running can be checked in the Dashboard UI via the check in time in Enrollment or when actively looking at a specific device. The following method above can be run locally and/or automated to run for unattended verification. This is useful for organizations with a large Sensor install base.
