To modify an on-prem host running the CDC service, complete the following:

  1. From the Cloud Services Portal, click Manage -> On-Prem Hosts


    When you add or modify any of the following settings, services on your on-prem host will restart after you save the configuration. You might experience a minor outage when the services restart. In addition, if the new configuration is invalid, BloxOne Threat Defense will revert back to the previous configuration after a few minutes. For example, if you made a typo while changing the IP address of an interface, the IP address becomes invalid and BloxOne Threat Defense reverts to the previous IP address to ensure that the on-prem host is still operational. This validation process happens in the background and does not affect any operations on your on-prem host

  2. Click  -> Edit or select the check box for the respective Data Connector, and then click the Edit button to modify host data, as follows:
    • NAME: The name of the Data Connector.
    • DESCRIPTION: Enter additional information about the Data Connector.
    • TAGSClick Add to associate keys with the Data Connector and specify the following:
      • KEY: Enter a meaningful name for the key, such as a location or a department.  

      • VALUE: Enter a value for the key. Select the respective check box and click Remove to delete the associated key. For information about tags, see Using Tags.

    • Applications & Services:

      • LICENSES: Displays information about the license, license tier, and any additional information about the license.

      • SERVICES: Displays the list of services associated with the respective licenses and their current states. Enable the Data Connector service. You can enable or disable a particular service by moving the slider respectively.

When you enable CDC service on an on-prem host, you use the host solely as the Data Connector. You cannot run other services on the Data Connector. Therefore, you will not be able to configure the following sections: 

  • IP Interface Settings
  • DNS Local Resolver IP Settings
  • NTP Settings
  • Proxy Settings
  • Docker Bridge Settings

3. Modify the details and click Save & Close to save the configuration, or click Cancel to cancel.


Virtual on-prem hosts are automatically created when they are connecting to the Cloud Services Portal using a valid token.
