We have several Client PCs, Laptops as spare and Client PCs / Laptops on construction sites without internet access that have Cortex XDR installed.
They can only get online in uneven intervals, sometimes several months so they get removed from the tenent.
I have the older client installer packages still active in the tenant even if they are outdated.
When they have internet access they still cant reconnect and update to the newest cortex xdr version.
That's very annoying and time consuming to fix that.
Before cortex we had trend micro office scan - it was no big deal at all , did't matter how long a client was offline , as soon as it was back online it updated without any issues.
I have no idea how we could solve this issue.
Maybe someone can help me and has a suggestions what to do.
Hi @MarioStockinger , you can adjust the Agent settings to ensure the license is not revoked. In your case, the Agent Deletion (days) entry should be a high value within your organization's acceptable standard for a host to remain offline and yet retain the license. Once the license is revoked, the agents won't be able to reconnect to the tenant and automatically update to the supported versions (if the Agent Settings profiles are applied to allow automatic upgrades).
The 30/180 is default. You're right, you'll need to adjust the '180' (Agent Deletion) to a higher value to ensure the licenses are not revoked. Please take a look at the license revocation process here.
No, it is not possible to pin a license to a host/client as per the current license process. You can use the cytool reconnect command from the endpoint to resume connectivity.
