Reference: Airgap support

TanOS supports two ways to access Taniumâ„¢ content in an airgap environment:

  • Change the content manifest URL to a location where you installed the Tanium airgap ISO.
  • Install airgap-prepped module and package files. The installation process extracts the necessary files from the zip archive and installs the content on the Tanium Server appliance.

Consult with your technical account manager (TAM) before using advanced options.

Change the content manifest URL to an airgap server

  1. Log into the TanOS console as the user tanadmin.
  2. Enter 2 to go to the Tanium Operations menu.
  3. Enter C to go to the Manifest URL Change menu and make your changes.

Install an airgap module

TanOS has menus to support installation of airgap modules and content packages.

Before you begin

  • Your management computer must have an SFTP client such as WinSCP to copy files to and from the appliance.
  • You must generate a public/private key pair to use with the tancopy user and upload the public key to the Tanium Server Appliance as described in Configure user access.

    1. Specify tancopy for user name.
    2. Click the Advanced button.
    3. Under SSH, browse and select the private key that pairs with the public key uploaded to the appliance in Configure user access.
  2. Use SFTP to copy the Airgap installer zip file to the /incoming directory on the appliance.
