Understanding Scheduled Download Exceptions

Download exceptions allow administrators to prevent Control Manager from downloading Trend Micro update components for entire day(s) or for a certain time every day.

This feature is particularly useful for administrators who prefer not to allow Control Manager to download components on a non-work day or during non-work hours.


Daily scheduled exceptions apply to the selected days, while hourly scheduled exceptions apply to every day of the week.

Example: The administrator decides that they do not want Control Manager to download components on weekends or after working hours throughout the week. The administrator enables Daily Schedule Exception and selects Saturday and Sunday. The administrator then enables Hourly Schedule Exception and specifies the hours of 00:00 to 9:00 and 18:00 to 24:00.
