I deployed AMP for endpoint to a test machine following Cisco's Deployment Strategy guide for AMP for endpoint.
This guide recomends creating an Audit Only, Protect, Triage, Server and Domain Controller policy and the same for groups. It also recomends all the workstations to initially belong to the "Audit Only" group (with the Audit Only policy) and then move them to the Protect group (with Protect policy) after making sure you root out any false positive.
At this point, I downloaded the connector from the "Audit Only Group" with the "Audit Only" policy and installed it in my VM.
Now, I went ahead and moved the computer from the "Audit Only Group" to the "Protect Group" but the Protect Policy is not reflected in the console nor in the connector.
- How do I properly move this Computer from the "Audit Only" to the "Protect" policy?
Doing a "Sync Policy" at the connector only updates any changes done to the "Audit Only" policy.
Rebooting the machine and/or restarting the services don't update the policy.
Solved! Go to Solution.
It looks like ~24h after the changes. The client and the console updated automatically.
Checking at the console events, the agent fecthed the policies on 01/10 and 01/11 but only the one from today (01/11) made the change.
Does this mean that changing a computer from one policy to another occurs when a heartbeat happens? If so, is there any way to force a computer to change to the new policy?
If you make any kind of changes in the policy including changing the connectors from one group to another , it will take effect only after the heartbeat interval . You can set the heartbeat interval starting from 15 minutes.
