With the global VDI option configured on the Carbon Black EDR sensor, the server attempts to correlate all sensors registering with it to a previously registered sensor, regardless of the assigned sensor group.

For this to occur, the client’s sensor must be configured to initially register/check-in with a Sensor ID of 0. This setting is globally enabled on the server by default.

Before you can install a sensor on a primary image, you must download a sensor package from the appropriate sensor group. When you install the sensor, ensure that the client is in “private mode” so that the sensor will not make any connections yet, such as checking in or registering with the Carbon Black EDR server.

For more information about installing sensors, see the VMware Carbon Black EDR Sensor Installation Guide.

Once installed, you can select the procedure for one of the following operating systems:

  • Windows

  • macOS

  • Linux
