The process of installing Trend Micro Security (for Mac) agent on several endpoints can be simplified by using Apple Remote Desktop.
If endpoints only have an IPv6 address, read the IPv6 limitations for Apple Remote Desktop agent deployment in Pure IPv6 Agent Limitations.
For information on obtaining the package, see Agent Installation Methods and Setup Files.
The files on tmsminstall.mpkg.zip may become corrupted if users launch it using archiving tools not built-in on the Mac.
To launch tmsminstall.mpkg.zip from Terminal, use the following command:
ditto –xk <tmsminstall.mpkg.zip file path> <destination folder>
ditto –xk users/mac/Desktop/tmsminstall.mpkg.zip users/mac/Desktop
Launching tmsminstall.mpkg.zip extracts the file tmsminstall.mpkg.
The Apple Remote Desktop starts installing the agent to the selected endpoints. If the installation was successful on all endpoints, the message Install Packages: Succeeded on all appears. Otherwise, Successful appears under Task Status for each endpoint on which the installation was successful.
Agents automatically register to the server where the agent installation package was obtained. Agents also update for the first time.
Perform agent post-installation tasks. For details, see Agent Post-installation.
