This section describes the steps for installing and initializing a new Carbon Black EDR server. Root-level permissions are required throughout the entire installation/configuration process. Use su or sudo to enter the installation/initialize commands.


The steps in this section are for a new installation only. If you already have the Carbon Black EDR server installed, do not perform these steps. Instead, see Server Upgrades and New Sensor Versions.

Using the new installation procedure on an existing server can result in loss of all data, including the configuration and event data collected from sensors.
