Installing the license file

You install the Tanium™ license file on the appliance that hosts the Tanium Server.

Install the license file before you log into the Tanium™ Console for the first time so that Tanium™ Interact is installed automatically during the Tanium Console launch.

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.

Upload the license file

  1. On your management computer, set up an SFTP client such as WinSCP to connect to the Tanium Server appliance:
    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 your license file (tanium.license) to the /incoming directory on the appliance.

Install the license

  1. Log into the Tanium Server appliance as the user tanadmin.

    The TanOS console displays the tanadmin menu.

  2. Enter 2 to go to the Tanium Operations menu.
  3. Enter 4 and then follow the prompts to install the license.
