This article introduces OfficeScan toolbox/CDT and how to use it.

OfficeScan toolbox/CDT is a tool that helps administrators collect debug logs remotely from OfficeScan clients due to any of the following issues:

  • Clients are not updated through server notification.
  • clients are unable to get updates from the correct source.
  • Clients are unable to get the correct settings.
  • Scan now is not triggered from the server
  • Other issues.

To use this tool:

  1. Under the Trend Micro OfficeScan Toolbox service, go to Plug-Ins and click Manage Program.


    Manage Program

  2. On the OSCE toolbox main menu, click on Updates > Update Now > Save. This step ensures that all tools, including CDT, will be present and updated to their latest versions.
  3. On the OSCE toolbox client tree, select which clients/agents you would like to collect debug logs from and click Deploy.
    For optimum performance, do not deploy to more than three (3) clients at the same time.
  4. Select Case Diagnostic Tool for Microsoft Windows, from the drop-down list in the pop-up window, and click Deploy.


    By default, Toolbox/CDT will be executed for 10 minutes on clients (Logserver.exe running time) to collect the debug logs.
  5. After the clients/agents completed the debug log collection and upload task, you can check it in the Logs section.
    If the toolbox/CDT was stopped or encountered technical issues, the download link will not be available on the web console.
