To update the pattern file and scan engine using command line:
Important: The command described below will follow the update setting configured on your SLPX Manual Update (Update > Manual Update) setting in the web console.
  1. Log in as root and then open a Command Terminal.
  2. Type in the following in the terminal:

    /opt/TrendMicro/SProtect/SPLX.vsapiapp/splxmain –u

    Alternatively, you may go to /opt/TrendMicro/SProtect/SPLX.vsapiapp and type in this: ./splxmain -u
    Note: Update process runs for about 10 minutes for an 8.3MB tar file size.
  3. After a few minutes, go to the \TrendMicro\SProtect directory and verify that you now have the latest pattern and scan engine files.
  4. To verify if an update is still in progress or if both the pattern and scan engine files are already updated, please follow these steps:
    1. Log in as root and then open a Command Terminal.
    2. Run this command in the Terminal:

      ps aux | grep splxmain

      The command will display something similar to this:
      root 14913 0.0 0.1 3568 624 pts/2 S 04:51 0:00 /opt/TrendMicro/SProtect/SPLX.vsapiapp/splxmain -u

      Note: If the displayed information is not similar to the line above, it means that the update is already finished.
       
    3. Go to the /opt/TrendMicro/Sprotect directory and check if it has the updated pattern file such as lpt$vpn.xxx, where xxx is the current pattern version
    4. Once the pattern file has been updated, type the following on the same directory as step c:
      • ls -al *vpn.xxx (where xxx is the current pattern version)
      • ls -al libvsapi.so (for the scan engine file)
        Note: To ensure a successful scan engine update, the date and time stamps of these two files should be the same.
