Linux Hardware Recommendations

Endpoints should comply with all hardware requirements for the OS you are running. Consider all processes that run on the endpoints when determining hardware configuration. Only industry standard desktop, laptop, or notebook computers and server hardware platforms are supported. Mobile and tablet require additional qualifications. Please contact VMware Carbon Black Support for additional information.

Linux Operating Systems and Respective Sensors

This topic describes Carbon Black Cloud Linux Sensors and operating systems.

For users of Carbon Black Cloud on AWS GovCloud (US), see Linux Supported Operating Systems and Sensors for AWS GovCloud (US) for system information specific to your environment.

Please see the Carbon Black Cloud Sensor Support Policy and the Linux Sensor Support Life Cycle Status page for information regarding Standard or Extended support for specific versions of the Linux sensor.

The Carbon Black Cloud Linux sensor offers support for the Graviton (aarch64) chipset. Graviton support is offered on the eBPF OS distributions with glibc version of 2.28 or higher.

Note:
  • "-" indicates through and inclusive of; for example, 2.12-2.15 indicates 2.12.x through and inclusive of 2.15.x.
  • Kernel versions listed are supported by the sensor together with the kernel versions prior to the specified version. Future kernel versions that GA with the OS are not supported until Carbon Black qualifies them for support. For example, for RHEL 9.1 the kernel version 5.14.0-162 indicates up to but not including 5.14.0-284. This is the kernel version that RHEL 9.2 released.
  • For the quarantine feature to function efficiently, IPtables is a pre-requisite on all Linux distributions. See the Sensor Installation Guide.
Important: Some sensor versions listed here might no longer be supported. Please consult the Linux Sensor Support Life Cycle Status page for information on sensor life cycle support status.

Endpoint Standard Linux Sensor Supported Distributions and Kernel Versions

This topic describes Carbon Black Cloud Linux Sensors and operating systems for Endpoint Standard.

Note:
  • "-" indicates through and inclusive of; for example, 2.12-2.15 indicates 2.12.x through and inclusive of 2.15.x.
  • Kernel versions listed are supported by the sensor together with the kernel versions prior to the specified version. Future kernel versions that GA with the OS are not supported until Carbon Black qualifies them for support. For example, for RHEL 9.1 the kernel version 5.14.0-162 indicates up to but not including 5.14.0-284. This is the kernel version that RHEL 9.2 released.
  • Kernel version 4.4+ is required for RHEL8, CentOS8, Oracle 8, Oracle UEK, Amazon, SUSE, and Ubuntu.
  • ***UEK kernel is only supported in 2.11.0+.

Audit and Remediation, Workloads, and Vulnerability Management Linux Sensor Supported Distributions

This topic describes Carbon Black Cloud Linux Sensors and operating systems for Audit and Remediation, Workloads, and Vulnerability Management.

Note:
  • All kernel versions are supported on Audit and Remediation.
  • Carbon Black does not support RHEL/CentOS/Oracle 6.5 and below in sensor version 2.9.1. We recommend that if you are running these operating system versions, to update to a more recent version of RHEL/CentOS/Oracle.
  • While Carbon Black Cloud supports sensor installations on Debian OS, it is not currently available for installation using the vSphere Console or the Carbon Black Cloud console. You can still perform such an installation by downloading the sensor kit from the Carbon Black Cloud console and then proceeding with manual installation. For more information, see Installing Linux Sensors on Endpoints.
  • "-" indicates through and inclusive of; for example, 2.12-2.15 indicates 2.12.x through and inclusive of 2.15.x.
