Health Check requirements
Review the requirements before you install and use Health Check.
Make sure that your environment meets the following requirements.
|Tanium™ Core Platform||7.2 or later.|
|License||For information about licensing, Contact Tanium Support.|
Health Check is installed and runs as a service on the Module Server. The resource impact on the Module Server is minimal and depends on usage.
Health Check does not deploy packages to endpoints. For Tanium Client operating system support, see Tanium Client User Guide: Host system requirements.
Specific ports and processes are needed to run Health Check.
The following ports are required for Health Check communication.
|Module Server||Module Server (loopback)||17242||TCP||Internal purposes; not externally accessible|
Configure firewall policies to open ports for Tanium traffic with TCP-based rules instead of application identity-based rules. For example, on a Palo Alto Networks firewall, configure the rules with service objects or service groups instead of application objects or application groups.
If security software is in use in the environment to monitor and block unknown host system processes, your security administrator must create exclusions to allow the Tanium processes to run without interference. For a list of all security exclusions to define across Tanium, see Tanium Core Platform Deployment Reference Guide: Host system security exclusions.
|Module Server||<Module Server>\services\health-service\node.exe|
The Administrator reserved role is required for all Health Check tasks.
