MDE Linux config file is not applied

Copper Contributor

Hey guys,


We have several Linux VMs in our Azure environment on which we have Defender for endpoint onboarded.
We then subsequently distributed a configuration file to the machines to the following path: /etc/opt/microsoft/mdatp/managed/mdatp_managed.json

 

We proceeded as described by Microsoft:
https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/security/defender-endpoint/linux-preferences?view=o3...

 

Unfortunately, the settings from the config file are not applied. mdatp health not showing the settings and "managed" suffix.
Restarting the mdatp service or the virtual machine was also not successful.

 

Is there anything else to consider? What needs to be done to ensure that the config file is applied correctly?
