Installing PolicyServer MMC

If you did not install PolicyServer MMC during PolicyServer installation, follow this procedure to install PolicyServer MMC. PolicyServer MMC can be installed on a separate endpoint from PolicyServer.


Trend Micro recommends installing the same version of PolicyServer MMC as PolicyServer. Legacy versions of PolicyServer MMC (version 3.1.3 or earlier) are unable to manage PolicyServer 6.0.

  1. Run PolicyServerMMCSnapinSetup.msi.

    The installation begins.

  2. Click Next to begin the Setup Wizard.
  3. Read the license agreement and accept the terms by selecting I Agree and then clicking Next.
  4. Select installation folder or leave at default location, and click Next.

    Depending on your processor, the default installation path is: C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\PolicyServer MMC\ or C:\Program Files (x86)\Trend Micro\PolicyServer MMC\

  5. Click Next to confirm installation.

    After the installation completes, the PolicyServer MMC installs to the specified location. A new PolicyServer MMC shortcut appears on the desktop:

    Figure 1. PolicyServer PolicyServer MMC shortcut
  6. Click Close to finish.
  7. Double-click the PolicyServer MMC shortcut on the desktop.
  8. Once PolicyServer MMC opens, authenticate using the Enterprise and Enterprise Administrator account created when the PolicyServer databases and services were installed.

See the Endpoint Encryption Administrator's Guide for additional post-installation tasks such as creating devices and users, and setting up policies.


Trend Micro recommends creating a backup Enterprise Administrator account and changing the default password.
