Carbon Black App Control (formerly Cb Protection)

Issue/Introduction

  • Alerts are not triggering.
  • Emails for Alerted Events are not sending.
  • AlertExecute scheduled task¬†last run time, is over 24 hours prior

Environment

  • App Control Server: All Supported Versions

Cause

AlertExecute and AlertGetNotifications are in an Execution Group with other tasks. If the other tasks take too long to complete, it will restart the whole group, causing the later tasks to not start until the previous ones complete. 

Resolution

Move the AlertExecute and AlertGetNotifications tasks into their own Execution Group:
  1. Take a full backup of the DAS database.
  2. Login to the application server hosting the Console as the Service Account and stop the services: App Control Server and App Control Reporter.
  3. Using SQL Management Studio run the following against the DAS database:
    use das;
    update dbo.scheduled_tasks set execution_group = 'alerts' where task = 'AlertExecute'
    update dbo.scheduled_tasks set execution_group = 'alerts' where task = 'AlertGetNotifications'
    
  4. Start the services: App Control Server and App Control Reporter
