Canauri™ GPO Deployment

  1. Create a folder called “App Deployment”.
  2. Share “AppDeployment” with Everyone. Read only.
  3. Create a folder in the “AppDeployment” share called, “Canauri”.
  4. Save the Canauri installer and a JSON config file to the “Canauri” folder.
  5. Create a JSON config file by copying the sequence below and paste into a notepad. Replace the X’s with your serial key from the portal. Save as cs_config.json.
  6. Validate the JSON by going to this link.
  7. Once all steps above are completed, open Group Policy Management on your domain controller.
  8. Right click “Group Policy Object”, select “New”, and give this new policy the name “Canauri”.
  9. Once created, drop down the Group Policy Object menu and right click “Canauri”. Select “Edit” from the list.
  10. Under “Computer Configuration”, drop down the “Policies” folder, and the “Software Settings” folder. Right click “Software Installation”, select “New”, and choose “Package”.
  11. Navigate through the UNC path to the “Canauri” folder created in step 3. Select the Canauri installer. Choose the “Advanced” option and select “OK”.
  12. Go back to Group Policy Management and right click the O.U., select “Link an Existing GPO”, and choose “Canauri”, and “OK”.
  13. Once Canuri is linked, right click the O.U. again and select “Group Policy Update” and run the update.
  14. Reboot machines.

If Canauri is installed on a server using GPO, you will have to manually input the “Active Directory Credentials” on the agent. Access the server to configure these settings. In the agent, select “Options”, then “Settings” to input the credentials. (Note: inputting active directory credentials into Canauri Server settings gives Canauri the ability to send a shutdown command to the malicious workstation in the event of an attack).
