Configuring Update/Deployment Settings

Using HTTPS to download components from the Trend Micro ActiveUpdate server (the default download source) or other update source provides a more secure method for retrieving components.

Downloading components from a shared folder in a network requires setting the local Windows and Remote UNC authentications.

The local Windows authentication refers to the Active Directory user account in the Control Manager server. The account should have:

  • Administrator privilege

  • Log on as a batch job policy set

The remote UNC authentication feature uses a user account from the component source server that has permission to share a folder to which Control Manager will download updates.
