This article contains recommendations for installing the Carbon Black Linux sensor on the Horizon golden image.

  • Make sure that the golden image never registers as a clone or gets deregistered.
  • For optimal performance, allow the background scan to complete on the golden image before creating clones.
Important: Do not run “/opt/carbonblack/psc/bin/cbagentd -R” on the golden image. This command converts the golden image into a clone, which might de-register the golden image if auto-deregister of VDI clone sensors is set and timeout has reached. The deregister of golden image results in failure of clone registration.
