Trend Micro OfficeScan: Installation

July 2nd, 2010 Posted in Security, Software, Trend Micro

Here we go. The first article in my OfficeScan how-to series.

So, how to install Trend Micro OfficeScan 10.0:

These are the steps:

1. Generate Trial license

2. Download software

3. Prepare server

4. Install OfficeScan server

1. Generate Trial license

If you don’t have one, you’ll need valid license.

You can get a trial here:

2. Download software

You then need to download the software.

Download the primary install file from:

(I’ll try to cover service packs, patches and hotfixes in a later article).

3. Prepare the server

You’re most likely installing OfficeScan on a Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2008.

Before you start the OfficeScan installer you will need to install IIS on the Windows server.

(Press “Win + R” and type “appwiz.cpl” and add and remove Windows components/roles.)

4. Install the OfficeScan server

Simply move the install file to the OfficeScan server and double-click it.

Its pretty much straight forward (Next->Next->Next)

You may choose not to enable the firewall, enable spyware assessment mode, install OfficeScan to another location etc, but I’ll cover best practice configuration in another article.

When you’re finished installing, you can access the OfficeScan server console by typing the following in to your browser, on the server.

https//localhost:4343/officescan
