Conflicting Apex One server DomainName and Certificate Name causes "Pending: Managed Server deploying" when deploying Apex One policy from Apex Central

    • Updated:
    • 9 Dec 2020
    • Product/Version:
    • Apex One 2019
    • Platform:
    • N/A

When deploying a policy to Apex One, the policy status just shows "Pending: Managed Server deploying".

Status: Pending Managed Server Deployment

Root Cause Analysis

The issue occurs if the Hostname doesn't match in OfcUninst.txt and Ofcscan.ini. This may happen if the customer changed the Server's Hostname after installing Apex One server.

  • Verify by comparing the value for Master_DomainName in the ofcscan.ini, and the InstallWorkstation in the ofUninst.ini.
    By default, the ofcscan.ini and ofUninst.ini files are located in the Apex One installation directory: ..\Trend Micro\OfficeScan\PCCSRV\.

    File comparison

  • The website certificate is issued to the IP address, but not the hostname. The Apex One server website's certificate can be checked through the MMC, under Trusted People > Certificates.

There are two options that can be used as action plan:

Option 1: Install Hotfix 1141

The issue is resolved in Apex One Hotfix 1441. Trend Micro recommends you apply the latest Apex One patch to address the issue.

Option 2: Issue new certificate

If the customer does not want to apply the latest Apex One critical patch / hot fix, they will need to issue a new certificate to match the new Hostname for the Apex One server website.

If a 3rd-party certificate for the Apex One server website was used, it is strongly recommended to apply the latest Apex One critical patch / hot fix. Otherwise, a new 3rd-party certificate needs to be issued to match the new Master_DomainName.

Follow these steps to issue a new certificate to match the new Master_DomainName for the Apex One server website:

  1. Open OfcUninst.txt, modify the value of "InstallWorkStation" to be the same as the Master_DomainName in ofcscan.ini.
  2. Run Command Prompt as Administrator, and change the directory to the Apex One Server installation directory: ...\Trend Micro\Apex One\PCCSRV\.
  3. Execute the following command to generate a new certificate:
  4. Open IIS Manager, and choose the new certificate for Apex One server website.
