Configuring Scheduled Update Settings

Configure scheduled component update settings to allow the Control Manager server to download selected components from an update source based on the specified schedule.

You can also configure Control Manager to deploy updated components to managed products based on the deployment plan.

Note:

Migrating to Control Manager 7.0 retains previously configured Update Source, Download Schedule, and Deployment Plan configurations for the All Pattern files/Cleanup templates, except Deep Discovery Malware Pattern component on the Scheduled Update screen.

Warning:

Migrating to Control Manager 7.0 resets the Components configurations on the Manual Update and Scheduled Update screens to default settings.

  1. Go to Updates > Scheduled Update.
  2. Use the drop-down lists to filter the component list. You can filter the component list based on the following:
    • Products: Select one or more managed products or all Trend Micro products from the drop-down and click Apply

    • Categories: Select one or more component categories from the drop-down and click Apply

    • Types: Select one or more component types from the drop-down and click Apply

  3. In the Components section, select the component categories or expand the categories to select components to update.

    For more information, see Component List.

    Important:

    If you select the Enable intelligent component downloading check box, Control Manager automatically selects all components based on the selected component categories. You cannot select individual components to update. To select individual components, clear the check box.

    Note:

    To minimize Control Manager network traffic, disable the downloading of components that have no corresponding managed products or services.

  4. (Optional) Select Enable intelligent component downloading to allow Control Manager to automatically detect and download new components based on the selected component categories from an update source.

    When you select this option, Control Manager also downloads updates for all existing components in the selected categories.

    Note:

    If the intelligent component downloading feature is not enabled, Control Manager only downloads updates for existing components selected in the component list during a scheduled or manual update.

  5. In the Update Source section, select one of the following options and configure the required settings:
    • Trend Micro ActiveUpdate server: Select this option to download component updates from the official Trend Micro ActiveUpdate server.

    • Other update source: Type the URL of the update source in the text field. You can specify up to five update sources by clicking the + icon.

      If server authentication is required, click Specify authentication credentials and type the user name and password information.

      For more information, see Update Source.

    Note:

    If the Control Manager server uses a proxy server to connect to an update source, configure the proxy settings on the Proxy Settings screen.

    For more information, see Configuring Proxy Settings for Component and License Updates.

  6. In the Download Schedule section, select Enable scheduled downloads and specify the component download schedule.
  7. In the Deployment Plan section, select a deployment option and configure the required settings.
