The root cause is a bug in the Apex Central installer, which does not migrate php.ini file in the folder "..\Trend Micro\Control Manager\PHP\" when upgrading. The incorrect file leads to the failure in policy deployment.


This issue can be fixed by upgrading to the latest version of Apex Central located in the Download Center.

If the problem is not resolved, follow these steps to manually replace php.ini:

  1. In the newly installed Apex Central server, navigate to ...\Trend Micro\Control Manager\PHP\.
  2. Copy the php.ini file to the Apex Central server which has the issue, then reboot it.
  3. Check if the policy can be deployed.
