- Using the VDI Pre-Scan Template optimizes the scan performance.
- VDI Components can prevent multiple I/O CPU intensive tasks on one hypervisor and save VDI environment resource.
Before deploying CPM agents to virtual machines, do the following:
To deploy VDI components to ESP Relays:
- Click Deployment in the CPM navigation tree.
- Click Install to view the applicable installation tasks in the List Panel.
- Click the Install VDI Components task.
Take note of the following:
- You should determine the TEM Relays/Server to deploy VDI Components. These are directly connected with the CPM virtual endpoints in the VDI environment.
- When deploying VDI components, port 5273 must be open.
- The upper TEM Relays/Server of the virtual endpoints should be installed with VDI components.
- The TEM Relays for physical endpoints do not need VDI components.
- Go to Configuration > Virtual Desktop Settings.
- Click Add New Connection Settings, and then select the virtual management server for your environment. The New VDI Connection Settings screen appears.
- Provide the required settings, and then click Save.
Run the CPM deployment fixlet to install CPM on the VM.
If you need more help with running the CPM deployment fixlet, refer to Page 38 (Deploying CPM Clients to the Endpoints) of the CPM Admin Guide.
The image below shows the Pre-Scan Template Generation process:
- Click Endpoint Protection > Core Protection Module > Deployment > Install, and then select the Core Protection Module - Download VDI Pre-scan Generation Tool fixlet.
- Copy the tool to the <CPM_Installation_Path>\OfficeScan Client folder of the base image.
- Run TCachGen_x86.exe or TCachGen_x64.exe as administrator.
- Click Generate Pre-Scan Template.
After the cache creation is done, CPM will be unloaded. Administrator should not reload CPM manually. Otherwise, new GUID will be created again.
- Shut down the VM, and then create template or snapshot, depending on your environment and deploy method.
- Deploy VMs using the template.
