Issue/Introduction

How to manually import the Configlist locally on a Windows App Control Agent.

Environment

  • App Control Agent: All Supported Versions
  • Microsoft Windows: All Supported Versions

Resolution

Pull Directly From Server: For Agents that are Connected & otherwise healthy:

  1. Log in to the endpoint and launch a command prompt.
  2. Issue the following commands:
    cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\Bit9\Parity Agent"
    dascli password GlobalPassword
    dascli configlistrefresh
    
  3. This will pull the Configlist directly from the App Control Server.


Import via Dascli: For Agents that are not Connected, or otherwise having issues:

  1. Acquire the latest Configlist from the application server's directory: \Bit9\Parity Server\hostpkg\configlistwithdeleteditems.xml.egk
  2. Place the file somewhere on the endpoint, example: C:\Temp\
  3. Issue the following commands:
    cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\Bit9\Parity Agent"
    dascli password GlobalPassword
    dascli importconfiglist "C:\Temp\configlistwithdeleteditems.xml.egk"
    


Import On Service Start: For Agents that are not Connected, or otherwise having issues:

  1. Acquire a copy the latest Configlist from the application server's directory: \Bit9\Parity Server\hostpkg\configlist.xml
  2. Use an administrative command prompt to issue the following commands:
    cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\Bit9\Parity Agent"
    dascli password GlobalPassword
    dascli tamperprotect 0
    net stop parity
    
  3. Rename the copy of configlist.xml in the directory: C:\ProgramData\Bit9\Parity Agent\configlistfull.bt9
  4. Start the Agent service in the administrative command prompt:
    net start parity
  5. After the Agent ingests the file, it will be recreated as: ConfigListBackup.bt9
