Summary

The Client Mover I/Ipxfer is a tool used for the following:

  • Transfer clients/agents from servers with different versions as long as the old server meets the minimum service pack or patch required by the new server.

When moving clients to another OfficeScan server, they will automatically inherit the settings of the parent group or domain. They will not retain their settings from the old OfficeScan server.

To get the server name or IP, server port, and agent port, open the ..\Program Files\Trend Micro\Officesan Server\PCCSRV\ofcscan.ini file on the OfficeScan Security Server using a text editor such as Notepad. Note the values of the following entries:

  • Master_DomainName
  • Master_DomainPort
  • Client_LocalServer_Port
To move the clients/agents, follow the procedure for your OfficeScan version:
  1. Go to ..\Program Files\Trend Micro\OfficeScan\PCCSRV\Pccnt\Common.
  2. Copy the OfcNTCer.dat file and paste it under the ..\Program Files\Trend Micro\OfficeScan\PCCSRV\Admin\Utility \IpXfer directory.
  3. Do one of the following options:

    Option 1: Run IpXfer.exe locally on the machine

    1. Go to ..\Program Files\Trend Micro\OfficeScan\PCCSRV\Admin\Utility \ipXfer directory on the OfficeScan server and locate the IpXfer.exe file.
    2. Copy the IpXfer.exe and the OfcNTCer.dat file to a specific folder on the agent to be transferred.
    3. Go to the folder where the IpXfer.exe file has been copied.
    4. Run the following:

      IpXfer.exe - s <server name or IP> -p <server port> -c <agent port> -e OfcNTCer.dat

      For example:

      IpXfer.exe -s <server name or IP> -p 8080 -c 12345 –e OfcNTCer.dat

    Option 2: Use the UNC path of IpXfer in the server

    1. On the agent machine that you want to transfer, open the Run window.
    2. Enter the UNC path of the IpXfer.exe file on the old OfficeScan server using the shared folder, ofcscan:

      \\<server name or IP>\ofcscan\admin\utility\ipxfer \ipxfer.exe - s <server name or IP> -p-c <agent port> -e \\<server name or IP>\ofcscan\PCCNT\Common\OfcNTCer.dat

      For example:

      \\OSCE11\ofcscan\admin\utility\ipxfer\ipxfer.exe -s osce11 -p 8080 -c 12345 -e \\OSCE11\ofcscan\PCCNT\Common\OfcNTCer.dat

     
    For 32-bit machines, please use IpXfer.exe and for 64-bit machines, please use IpXfer_x64.exe.
  1. Go to ..\Program Files\Trend Micro\OfficeScan\PCCSRV\Admin\Utility \ipXfer directory on the OfficeScan server and locate the IpXfer.exe file.
  2. Copy the IpXfer.exe file to the OfficeScan folder of the client to be transferred.
  3. Do one of the following options:

    Option 1: Use the command prompt to run IpXfer.exe

    1. Open the command prompt.
    2. Go to the OfficeScan folder where the IpXfer.exe file has been copied.
    3. Run the following:

      IpXfer.exe - s <(new) server name or IP> -p <server port> -c <client port>

      For example:

      IpXfer.exe -s osce2008 -p 8080 -m 1 -c 65223

    Option 2: Use the UNC path of IpXfer in the server

    1. On the client machine that you want to transfer, open the Run window.
    2. Enter the UNC path of the IpXfer.exe file on the old OfficeScan server using the shared folder, ofcscan:

      \\<Old Officescan server name or IP>\ofcscan\admin\utility\ipxfer\ipxfer.exe - s <new OfficeScan server name or IP> -p <new OfficeScan server port> -m 1 -c <client port> -d <Domain or Group name>

      For example:

      \\2003osce\ofcscan\admin\utility\ipxfer\ipxfer.exe -s osce2008 -p 8080 -m 1 -c 65223 -d Group-Name

    Notes:

      • If the client is on a subgroup or sub-domain, use backslash (\) to specify the subgroup. For example, \\2003osce\ofcscan\admin\utility\ipxfer\ipxfer.exe -s osce2008 -p 8080 -m 1 -c 65223 -d Group\Subgroup.
      • You can use a logon script or Group Policy Object that will run a batch file containing the command above.
      • The switch "-d" is applicable to NetBIOS grouping. It does not support domain or sub-domain names with spaces.
      • When you are using the "-d" option, make sure that the pccwfwmo.dll and loadhttp.dll files are present in the same directory as ipxfer. You may copy the DLL files from an OfficeScan client folder if running the tool locally.
