Installing on a Single Endpoint

The process of installing the Trend Micro Security (for Mac) agent on a single endpoint is similar to the installation process for other Mac software.

During the installation, users may be prompted to allow connections to iCoreService, which is used to register the agent to the server. Instruct users to allow the connection when prompted.

  1. Check for and uninstall any security software on the endpoint.
  2. Obtain the agent installation package tmsminstall.zip.

    For information on obtaining the package, see Agent Installation Methods and Setup Files.

  3. Copy tmsminstall.zip on the endpoint and then launch it using a built-in archiving tool, such as Archive Utility.
    Warning:

    The files on tmsminstall.zip may become corrupted if users launch it using archiving tools not built-in on the Mac.

    To launch tmsminstall.zip from Terminal, use the following command:

    ditto –xk <tmsminstall.zip file path> <destination folder>

    For example:

    ditto –xk users/mac/Desktop/tmsminstall.zip users/mac/Desktop

    Launching tmsminstall.zip creates a new folder tmsminstall.

  4. Open the tmsminstall folder and launch tmsminstall.pkg.
  5. When a message prompting you to continue with installation displays, click Continue.


  6. On the Introduction screen, click Continue to proceed.


  7. Read the reminders and click Continue.


  8. On the Installation Type screen, click Install.


  9. Fill in the Name and Password fields to begin the installation process.
    Note:

    Specify the name and password for an account with administrative rights on the endpoint.



  10. If the installation was successful, click Close to finish the installation process.


    The agent automatically registers to the server where the agent installation package was obtained. The agent also updates for the first time.

Perform agent post-installation tasks. For details, see Agent Post-installation.
