Restart a bzero agent from the ZLI

14 September 2022

zli v. 6.9.5

New

  • Restart bzero from the zli. Administrators can use zli target restart <target name or id> to manually kick off a bzero agent restart. This can be used as a failsafe measure in the event that a target is still online but is not accepting user connections. To take advantage of this feature, you must be running zli >= 6.9.0 and bzero agent >= 6.7.0
  • Set default target user for shell, SSH, and SCP connections. To simplify workflows, zli v. 6.9.5 supports setting a default target user for shell, SSH, and SCP connections.
    • For shell, set your default target user by executing zli configure default-targetuser [targetUser]
    • For SSH or SCP, execute the command above followed by zli generate sshConfig. This will ensure that the User field in your bzero-bz-config is updated to reflect your set default target user
    • To reset your default target user, use zli configure default-targetuser --reset and if resetting the target user for SSH and SCP, also run zli generate sshConfig

Fixes

  • bzero-bz-config generation. Corrected a typo in the BastionZero-generated SSH configuration file comment

bzero v. 6.7.3

New

  • Restart bzero from the zli. As noted in the zli changes this week, the bzero v. 6.7.3 agent supports manual restart from the zli. Ensure you are running zli >= 6.9.0 and bzero agent >= 6.7.0 to utilize this feature

Fixes

  • Agent version. Resolved issue where the agent version was not reflecting accurately if the agent was upgraded using package managers. Note that this was limited to the displayed version only and had no impact on the agent software itself_._ To ensure the correct version is displaying when viewing the targets table in the web app or list-targets in the zli, upgrade or re-register your agent. If you need help with either of these actions, reach out to [email protected]
  • Leverage .profile when connecting through the zli. Resolved issue where zli connect was not sourcing from the .profile file
