To move WFBS clients to a different server:

Refer to the article Using the Move tool to migrate WFBS clients to a new server.

Use this procedure if the new Security Server is already installed and running before uninstalling the old one.

Use this procedure in a script to migrate several machines to the new server.

In this procedure, you don't have to copy ipxfer.exe in each machine before running the command.

  1. Open the ..\Program Files\Trend Micro\Security Server\PCCSRV\ofcscan.ini file on the Security Server using a text editor such as Notepad.
  2. Note the values of the following entries:
    • Master_DomainName
    • Master_DomainPort
    • Client_LocalServer_Port
  3. On a separate Notepad file, copy the command format below and indicate the corrrect IP or computer name of the Security Server:

    \\<IP or Computer Name of the Security Server>\ofcscan\Admin\Utility\IpXfer\ipxfer.exe -s master_domainname -m 1 -p Master_domainport -c Client_LocalServer_Port

    Example:

    \\192.168.0.10\ofcscan\Admin\Utility\IpXfer\ipxfer.exe -s 192.168.0.10 -m 1 -p 8059 -c 18277

  4. Migrate the clients by doing one of the following:
    • On the workstation:
      1. Click Start > Run
      2. Paste the correct command from Step 3 on the Open field.
      3. Click OK.
    • On the server, add the correct command from Step 3 to a login script.

      The Client/Server Security Agent icon on the system tray will disappear and then reappear.

  5. Return to the WFBS console and verify if the client has been migrated.

This is not applicable for WFBS 7.

  1. On the new Security Server, go to the ..\Program Files\Trend Micro\Security Server\PCCSRV folder.
  2. Open the ofcscan.ini file using a text editor such as Notepad.
  3. Note the values of the following:
    • Master_DomainPort
    • Client_LocalServer_Port
  4. On the client machine, open the Services console (services.msc) and stop the following services:
    • Trend Micro Common Client Solution Framework (Only applicable to WFBS 9.0 agent)
    • Trend Micro Security Agent Listener
    • Trend Micro Security Agent NT Proxy Service
    • Trend Micro Security Agent RealTime Scan
    • Trend Micro Unauthorized Change Prevention Service

    Alternatively, you can also unload the Security Agent.

  5. Open the Registry Editor (regedit.exe).
     
    Always back up the whole registry before making any modifications. Incorrect changes to the registry can cause serious system problems.
  6. For 32-bit machines, go to HKLM\Software\TrendMicro\PC-cillinNTCorp\CurrentVersion.
    For 64-bit machines, go to HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\TrendMicro\PC-cillinNTCorp\CurrentVersion.
  7. Click CurrentVersion and then modify the following:
    • DatabasePath: Type the name of the new server.
    • Server: Type the IP address or FQDN of the new server.
    • LocalServerPort: Type the Client_LocalServer_Port value.
    • ServerPort: Type the Master_DomainPort value.
  8. Start the services that you stopped in Step 4 and reload the Security Agent.

    To reload the Security Agent, click Start > Programs > Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security Agent > Worry-Free Business Security Agent.
