Technical Advisory: Issue with Manual Computer Groups on Non-Windows Tanium Clients


An issue has been identified with manual computer groups on all non-Windows versions of the Tanium Client.  Non-Windows Tanium Clients will fail to register as members of a manual computer group, and questions or actions targeted to those groups will not be applied to those Tanium Clients.


Affected Customers

Customers on the 6.5 platform using manual computer groups to manage non-Windows Tanium Clients.



Tanium has addressed the issue with a Tanium Server fix in future versions.  Customers on the 6.5 platform using version 6.5.314.4338 or older should upgrade when a new version is released.



A fix is available for existing instances of Tanium that involves updating reserved sensors within the “tanium” database.  Please reach out to your Technical Account Manager for assistance if you would like to resolve before a future version of the Tanium Server is available.
