Troubleshooting the Tanium Client on a single endpoint
In Reporting or Interact, you can quickly download log files, action history, and other useful troubleshooting data from a single endpoint.
Download log files, action history, and access logically grouped bundles of logs and other artifacts, sometimes referred to as an Endpoint Must Gather (EMG) from the Client Management tab. You access the Client Management tab on the Endpoint Details page. For information on accessing the Endpoint Details page, see Tanium Reporting User Guide: View endpoint details.
Use the Client Management tab to download log files and action history from an endpoint. the Review Tanium Client logs to help you troubleshoot client issues. For example, a client might not answer questions or appear in the Tanium Console (Administration > Configuration > Client Status) because that client cannot connect to the Tanium Server or Zone Server. In this case, you can review the client logs to determine whether the connection failed due to an invalid server IP address, DNS resolution failure, missing Tanium public key file, or firewall rule. For more information on Tanium Client logs, see Tanium Client Management User Guide: Access individual endpoint logs in Client Management.
When a package does not seem to work after you deploy it through an action, review action logs and the files associated with the action to help troubleshoot. Each time the Tanium Client receives an action message with an instruction set to execute, the client creates an action log file named Action_<ID>.log, where <ID> is the action identifier. The action log contains the CLI output associated with the action command. The Tanium Client stores any files that are required to deploy an action package in Action_ID directories. For more information on action history, see Tanium Client Management User Guide: Review action logs and associated files to troubleshoot actions and packages .
