Event Forwarder 3.7.6 is now generally available for all on-prem EDR customers.
Event Forwarder 3.7.6 is the only version that should be run with Server 7.7.0 at the time of this writing and replaces 3.8.0 and 3.8.1 as the latest stable release.
This is a maintenance release that delivers the following bug fixes:
On-prem EDR customers can download Event Forwarder 3.7.6 from GitHub.
Important: Removal of version 3.8.0 or 3.8.1
For customers running Event Forwarder versions 3.8.0 or 3.8.1, you will first need to remove that version of Event Forwarder before installing Event Forwarder 3.7.6.
sudo service cb-event-forwarder stop
sudo yum remove cb-event-forwarder
For customers running Event Forwarder versions 3.7.5 or older, the following installation instructions will install Event Forwarder 3.7.6 without first removing the previous version.
To install and configure the cb-event-forwarder, perform these steps as “root” on your target Linux system.
NOTE: If you plan to use the EDR console to configure and control cb-event-forwarder, then you MUST install it on the same system on which EDR is installed (in the case of a cluster installer, this means the primary node).
cd /etc/yum.repos.d curl -O https://opensource.carbonblack.com/release/x86_64/CbOpenSource.repo
yum install cb-event-forwarder-3.7.6
