There will be no further enhancement for TMMS migration tool. The tool's main purpose is to help TMMS 8.0 customers to automatically migrate their DB and configuration to the new TMMS 9.0 Patch 1 schema. Customers who want to avail the succeeding enhancements or fixes after the TMMS 9.0 Patch 1 must install those patches or service packs separately.

To migrate TMMS 8.0 to TMMS 9.0 Patch 1:

You must have TMMS 8.0/8.0 SP1 installed before upgrading to TMMS 9.0 Patch 1.

 
You must have TMMS 9.0 Patch 1 freshly installed for migration.
  • The current version does not support migration from TMMS 8.0 to TMMS 9.0 Patch 1 using Cloud Communication Server. If you use Local Communication Server in TMMS 9.0, you need to install the Local Communication Server on the computer that has the same server address and port with Communication Server 8.0, refer to Step 4: Restoration Of Database And Configuration.
  • After migration, take note of the following:
    • All Android devices will receive a notification to upgrade the agent to 9.0 Patch 1. After the upgrade, the device can be managed by the server through the new agent.
    • All iOS devices whose OS version is lower than 7.0 will receive a notification to download the new iOS agent from the app store. An application icon named TMMS upgrade will be provisioned to the home screen. When the agent is installed, you need to click the icon in order for the agent to communicate with the server. The TMMS upgrade icon will be deleted automatically after the agents connect to the server.
      There is no need to re-enroll the device and remove or re-install any profile.
    • All iOS devices whose OS version is 7.0 or higher will also receive a notification to download the new iOS agent from the app store; and an application icon named TMMS upgrade will be provisioned to the home screen. When the agent is installed, however, you may get error or be prompted to re-install the mdm enrollment profile when clicking the icon (the profile install will simply fail although, since it has already been installed).
      You need to wait for up to 24 hours when the TMMS 9 server will provision another application icon named TMMS update on the home screen. You need to click this icon in order for the agent to communicate with the server. The two application icons will be deleted automatically after the agents connect to the server. There is no need to re-enroll the device again and remove or re-install any profile.
    • For iOS devices whose OS version is 6.0 or higher on TMMS 8.0 GM version, there is a known issue: the required application push for uploaded IPA app or external app from Apple Store cannot work due to insufficient rights of the installed MDM profiles. This known issue is fixed in TMMS 8.0 SP1 for new enrolled devices. Due to this known issue, take note of the following impact if the iOS devices are originally enrolled on TMMS 8.0 GM build (even though the TMMS server is already upgraded to TMMS 8.0 SP1):
      • When migrating to TMMS 9 Patch 1, the notification for new agent install will not be prompted on these iOS devices. Instead, you need to manually install it from the Apple Store.
      • After migration, the required application push for uploaded IPA app or external app from Apple Store will not work on these iOS devices (however, the devices can still install any application from TMMS enterprise app store). To resolve this known issue, you need to re-enroll the devices need to be re-enrolled and re-install the profiles.

When you migrate from TMMS version 8.0 to 9.0 Patch 1, you need to back up the files from version 8.0 and then restore the files when TMMS 9.0 Patch 1 has been installed.

The backup files include:

  • Database backup file - backup of version 8.0 database
  • Configuration backup files - backup of version 8.0 configuration files on the Management Server
 
Do not uninstall TMMS 8.0 before backing up the data on the server. Otherwise, all data will be lost.
A. Back up TMMS 8.0 SP1.

To back up the database and configuration:

  1. Download the migration tool on the computer where the TMMS 8.0 Management Server is installed.
    Example: C:\migration\migration.exe
  2. Run migration.exe.
  3. On the migration tool UI, go the Backup current version section.
  4. Select 8.0 on the Version dropdown.
    The server’s installation path will appear in the Path field, as shown in the image below:
  5. Set the backup path for the database:
    1. Log on to the computer where the database server is installed.
    2. Create a new folder in the C:\ directory. For example: C:\bak.
      This will be used as the backup path for the database file.
    3. Go back to the migration tool and input the backup path in the Database Path field.
    4. Click the Backup button.

When the backup is finished, all the configuration files will be stored in the C:\migration\bak directory. The database backup file will be stored in the path you specified in Step 5.

 
  • The C:\migration directory is the folder of the migration tool. The bak folder is generated automatically in the same path as the migration.exe file.
  • Do not change the name of the database backup file.
B. Copy the backup files to the TMMS 9.0 Patch 1 machine.

You need to copy the TMMS 8.0 backup files to the computer where TMMS 9.0 Patch 1 will be installed, so you can restore them later on.

  • Database backup file
    If you will use a different SQL server for TMMS 9.0 Patch 1, you need to manually copy the backup file to the computer where the SQL server for TMMS 9.0 Patch 1 is installed.
    There is no need to manually copy the database file if you will use the same SQL server for TMMS 9.0 Patch 1.
     
    Trend Micro recommends using the same SQL server version for TMMS 8.0 and 9.0 Patch 1. If you use different versions, make sure that the database backup file could be restored from TMMS 8.0 to TMMS 9.0 Patch 1.
  • Configuration backup files
    1. Copy the migration tool package to the computer where the TMMS 9.0 Patch 1 Management Server will be installed.
    2. Do one of the following:
      • If you will install version 9.0 Patch 1 on a different computer, get the configuration backup files from C:\migration\bak on the old machine, and copy them onto the target computer.
      • If you will install TMMS 9.0 Patch 1 on the same computer, do not copy the configuration file. Instead, use the default settings provided by the migration tool.
A. Install the Management Server.

Refer to the Installation and Deployment Guide for detailed installation instructions.

 
  • TMMS versions 8.0 and 9.0 Patch 1 cannot be installed on the same computer at the same time. If you want to install version 9.0 Patch 1 on the same computer where version 8.0 is installed, you should uninstall version 8.0 and OfficeScan before installing version 9.0 Patch 1.
  • If you are using the same SQL server, you need to create a new database name during the installation. Do not connect the database that you used for version 8.0.
  • If you are using a different SQL server, make sure you are connected to the new server during the version 9.0 Patch 1 installation.
  • If you will transfer the database/configuration to another TMMS 9.0 Patch 1 server, create a new database on the new TMMS 9.0 Patch 1 server so that the records on the current database will not be overwritten after migration.
B. Install the Blackberry tool.

Install the Blackberry tool on the machine of the Management Server 9.0 Patch 1. The installation path should be the same as the installation path of the Blackberry tool on Management Server 8.0.

If you do not use the Blackberry tool, skip this step.

C. Install the Local Communication Server.

If you will install the Local Communication Server on the same computer that hosts the TMMS 8.0 Communication Server, uninstall the TMMS 8.0 Communication Server first.

Install the Local Communication Server on a computer that has the same server address and port as the TMMS 8.0 Communication Server. This will allow TMMS 9.0 Patch 1 to recognize and manage the existing devices enrolled in TMMS 8.0.

 
TMMS does not support migration using a Cloud Communication Server. If you want to use a Cloud Communication Server, you will need to re-enroll all registered mobile devices.

If you are using public or private SSL certificates in version 8.0, import the SSL certificates that you exported in Pre-Migration Step C.

For the steps on installing the Local Communication Server and importing the SSL certificates, refer to “Installing the Local Communication Server” section of the TMMS 9.0 Patch 1 Installation and Deployment Guide (Chapter 3, Page 3-14).

To restore the database and configuration on TMMS 9.0 Patch 1:

  1. Run the migration tool on the computer where the TMMS 9.0 Patch 1 Management Server is installed.
  2. Go to the Migrate data to destination section and select 9.0 from the Version dropdown.
    A correctly installed server will show the installation path “C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\Mobile Security” in the Path field.
  3. In the Database Path field, do one the following:
    • If you are using the same SQL server, input the path where you saved the backup file.
    • If you are using a different SQL server, input the path on the target SQL server where you had copied the backup file. This was done in the Database and Configuration Backup Step B.
  4. Click the Restore button.
    A database backup file of the TMMS 9.0 Patch 1 Management Server will be generated on the database server for exception and rollback.

After the migration, a dialog window will show the result. If the migration is successful, proceed to the next step. If the migration failed, check the logs in the migration tool directory to get detailed information, and then try to migrate again.

End User License Agreement

When the migration is finished, upload the customized End User License Agreement (EULA) manually. For the procedure, refer to the “Customizing Mobile Security Terms of Use” section of the TMMS 9.0 Patch 1 Installation and Deployment Guide (Chapter 4, Page 4-14).

Device Agents

All device agents will receive an update / upgrade notification.

Android devices will receive a notification to upgrade the agent to 9.0 Patch 1. After the upgrade, the device can be managed by the server through the new agent.

iOS devices will receive a notification to download the new iOS agent from the app store, and then an application icon named “TMMS upgrade” will be provisioned to the home screen. When the agent is installed, users need to click the icon in order for the agent to communicate with the server. The TMMS upgrade icon will be deleted automatically after the agents connect to the server. There is no need to re-enroll the device, nor to remove or re-install any profile.

Q: Before doing restoration, do we need to copy any file from TMMS 8.0?

A: Yes. You need to copy the following files:

  • Database backup file
  • Configuration backup files

Q: Can we migrate from TMMS 8.0 using SQL Server 2008 to TMMS Mobile Device Management (MDM) 9.0 using SQL Server 2005?

A: No. Trend Micro recommends using the same version of SQL Server for TMMS 8.0 and TMMS 9.0. If you use different versions, make sure that the database backup file could be restored from TMMS 8.0 to TMMS 9.0 Patch 1.
