Release Notes

Client Management overview

With Client Management, you can deploy the Tanium™ Client to targeted sets of Windows, Linux, Mac, Solaris, or AIX endpoints.

Deployment process overview

Before you begin the deployment process, determine the set of endpoints that you are going to target. You can target by single IP, computer name, IP or CIDR range, or label that you defined in Tanium™ Discover.

To deploy clients, configure client configurations and credentials. You can then use those configurations to create deployments, which are targeted at specific sets of unmanaged endpoints. The Tanium Module Server installs the Tanium Client on the targeted endpoints. Depending on the results, you can reuse the configurations to try deployments again or target different sets of endpoints.

Client configurations

A client configuration includes client settings specific to a deployment, including the version of the Tanium Client to deploy, and the Tanium Server with which to associate the client. Client configurations can also contain tags, which identify the endpoints after the client is installed.

Client credentials

Client credentials are a list of credentials the Module Server uses to log in to endpoint computers for installation of the Tanium Client. This list of credentials is tried in the defined order for each endpoint in the deployment.

Target endpoints

When you create and run a deployment, you can target endpoints by IP address or range, computer name, or labels from Tanium™ Discover.

Integration with other Tanium products

Discover

You can apply labels to the unmanaged interfaces that are identified with Tanium™ Discover,

Trends

Client Management features Tanium™ Trends boards that provide data visualization of Client Management concepts, including successful and failed deployments, and the versions of the Tanium Client that were deployed. The following panels are in the Tanium Client Management board:

  • Tanium Client versions deployed
  • Tanium Client versions deployed - latest
  • Successful installations
  • Deployment failures

For more information about how to import the Trends boards that are provided by Client Management, see Tanium Trends User Guide: Importing the initial gallery.
