How to deploy Carbon Black Sensor on Horizon Full clone Persistent Pools
Endpoint Standard (Formerly CB Defense) Sensor 3.6.x and Higher
Microsoft Windows: All Supported Versions in Horizon
VMware Horizon View
To deploy Endpoint Standard Sensors to a VMware Horizon Full clones/Persistent VM's , which is subsequently deployed from a base template or golden image.
For sensors 3.6.x and Higher:
Create the Parent Image for the full clone pool deployment and install the VM tools.
Install the CB sensor on the "Master Image" using below command:
Open CMD with Run as Administrator .
Navigate to the CB sensor installation location.
Run the below command
msiexec.exe /q /i install_vista_win7_win8-64-3.x.msi /L* CB_log.log COMPANY_CODE="XXXXXXXX" CLI_USERS=sid BASE_IMAGE=1 GROUP_NAME="Virtual"
COMPANY CODE : company registration code from the CB cloud console. CLI_USERS : This parameter on the golden image enables REPCLI usage on the clones. The value is the Security Identifier (SID) of the user account/group that will run repcli commands on the clone. GROUP_NAME : Mention the Policy Name which has the necessary exclusions are applied to the policy.
3. Verify the CB icon visible on the taskbar or Add/remove program
4. Run the below command to update the latest CB signature
Open the CMD with Run as Administrator
Navigate to C:\program files\confer folder
5. Perform the Background scan on the Parent Image. (optional) C:\program files\confer\Repcli.exe ondemandscan c:\
Progress of the OnDemand scan can be tracked via below command.
6. Shutdown the Parent image and convert into template .
7. Create Full clone pool with parent VM Template in Horizon view admin console.
8. Once the pools deployed and VM came to available state , the newly created VM will be registered with new device ID within the Carbon Black Cloud (CBC) Console.
Note : Creating a Full Clone VDI Pool, you can refer my previous post as mentioned below
I hope this will help to deploy the Carbon Black Cloud Sensor on the base image for deploying the Horizon Full clone Persistent pools.
