The WFBS server that use conventional scanning method is unable to update. This is due to a corrupted pattern files or update components in the server's cache.


To fix the issue, clear the cache of the Security Server and any proxy in your network:

  1. On the Security Server, stop the Trend Micro Security Server Master Service.
  2. Go to the ..\Trend Micro\Security Server\PCCSRV folder and delete all the pattern files (LPT$VPN.XXX) except for the oldest one.
  3. Go to ..\PCCSRV\Download and then delete the pattern folder.
  4. Go back to ..\PCCSRV and then delete the contents of the following folders (if available):
    • ..\WEB\CGI\Temp\
    • ..\WEB\Service\AU_Cache
    • ..\WEB\Service\AU_Temp
    • ..\WEB\CGI\Temp
    • ..\WEB\CGI\Temp\Cache
    • ..\WEB\Service\Temp\Cache
    • ..\WEB\Service\Temp (all *.tmp files)
    • ..\Admin\Temp*
    • ..\Admin\Temp\Cache*
  5. Start the Trend Micro Security Server Master Service.
  6. Delete your browser's Temporary Internet Files and Cookies:
    1. On your browser, click Tools > Internet Options > General tab.
    2. Under Temporary Internet Files, click Delete Cookies > OK.
    3. Click Delete Files > OK > OK.
  7. If you are using a proxy, clear the proxy server's cache also by doing Steps 6a to 6c.
  8. Delete the ..\PCCSRV\Download\server.ini file.
  9. Open the Security Dashboard and check if you can now download updates.
