Alma Linux Update for MDR Customers with Azure Deployments

CentOS has announced the end of life for their version 6 and 8 operating systems. This means CentOS will no longer provide security patches, vulnerabilities, or bug fixes for these operating systems. As a result, Alert Logic is helping customers update all Alert Logic appliances running on out-of-date operating systems.

Update your appliance to Alma Linux using the documentation below.

As we transition all customers to Alma Linux, Alert Logic will continue to maintain necessary security updates for virtual CentOS versions 6 and 8 for a limited period, to ensure all customers remain secure. This support is valid until the following dates depending on the appliance type:

  • Virtual IDS to January 31, 2023
  • Virtual Log Manager to June 30, 2023

How to update for MDR customers with Azure deployments

  1. Install a new appliance for every appliance you have in each VNET. See Microsoft Azure Deployment Configuration (Professional Subscription).
  2. Check the health of your agents and appliances on the Health page in the Alert Logic console. See Health.

    It can take up to 60 minutes for the appliance to claim.

  3. Terminate the old appliance.
