Verify Roaming Client Operation

Once installed, verify that the Cisco Umbrella roaming client is working as expected.

When the indicator is green in the Umbrella dashboard or a blue sphere in the tray icon, it means that the Umbrella roaming client is operating correctly. If the status indicator is not green or the tray icon includes a colored dot, see Status, States, and Functionality for more information.

Verify on the Target Computer

By default, the tray icon is installed and visible for both Mac and Windows installations.


Unless you have specifically opted not to install the tray icon through a flag in a command-line/distributed installation, the tray icon is displayed if your installation is successful.

Verify this on the machine on which you installed the Umbrella roaming client.
