Configuring Agent Update Settings

For a detailed explanation of agent updates, see Agent Updates.

  1. Navigate to Agent Management.
  2. In the agent tree, click the root icon () to include all agents or select specific groups or agents.
  3. Click Settings > Update Settings.
  4. Select the check box to allow agents to download updates from the Trend Micro ActiveUpdate server.

    If an agent only has an IPv6 address, read the IPv6 limitations for agent updates in Pure IPv6 Agent Limitations.

  5. Configure scheduled updates.
    1. Select Enable scheduled update.
    2. Configure the schedule.
    3. If you select Daily or Weekly, specify the time of the update and the time period the Trend Micro Security (for Mac) server will notify agents to update components. For example, if the start time is 12pm and the time period is 2 hours, the server randomly notifies all online agents to update components from 12pm until 2pm. This setting prevents all online agents from simultaneously connecting to the server at the specified start time, significantly reducing the amount of traffic directed to the server.
  6. If you selected group(s) or agent(s) on the agent tree, click Save to apply settings to the group(s) or agent(s). If you selected the root icon (), choose from the following options:
    • Apply to All Agents: Applies settings to all existing agents and to any new agent added to an existing/future group. Future groups are groups not yet created at the time you configure the settings.

    • Apply to Future Groups Only: Applies settings only to agents added to future groups. This option will not apply settings to new agents added to an existing group.
