Summary

This article discusess how to configure pre-boot network settings in SecureCloud.

Details
Public

The host/main OS network settings will be synced to the pre-boot OS automatically each time the Agent is started.

In some cases, there may be a need to move the provisioned instance to a subnet with different network settings (Ex: static). If the network settings are not properly configured to the destination network, the pre-boot OS agent will fail to connect to SecureCloud Server and not able to boot the host/main OS.

Perform the procedure before shutting down your computer.

Do the following:

  1. Access the preboot_network.xml file. By default, the .XML file is located in the following Agent installation folder:

    Windows 32-bit: C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\SecureCloud\Agent\
    Windows 64-bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\Trend Micro\SecureCloud\Agent\
    Linux:  /var/lib/securecloud/

    Example of a pre-boot network configuration:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <PrebootNetwork ApplyManualSetting="False">
    <EnableDHCPFalse/EnableDHCP>
    <EnableIPv6False/EnableIPv6>
    <EnableAutoDetectTrue/EnableAutoDetect>
    <DefaultNIC>
    <MacAddress12:34:56:78:90:ab></MacAddress>
    <IPv4Address>192.168.0.2</IPv4Address>
    <IPv4Netmask>255.255.255.0</IPv4Netmask>
    <IPv6>Addressfe80::20c:29ff:fec8:3229</IPv6Address>
    <IPv6Prefix>64</IPv6Prefix>
    </DefaultNIC>
    <DefaultIPv4Gateway>192.168.0.1</DefaultIPv4Gateway>
    <DefaultIPv6Gateway>fe80::d916:4b1a:2a04:f469</DefaultIPv6Gateway>
    <IPv4DN>S8.8.8.8</IPv4DNS>
    <IPv6DNS>2001:4860:4860::8888</IPv6DNS>
    </PrebootNetwork>
  2. Edit the values to the intended address settings.

    For example, in <IPv4Address>192.168.0.2</IPv4Address>, modify 192.168.0.2 to the intended IP address.

  3. Change the value of ApplyManualSetting to "True".

    The settings will be synchronized with the device preboot when the agent starts.

    To force the device preboot synchronization, run the following command:

    For Linux:

    /var/lib/securecloud/scconfig.sh --preboot-network detect

    For Windows 32-bit:

    C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\SecureCloud\Agent>scconfig.exe --preboot-network detect

    For Windows 64-bit:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Trend Micro\SecureCloud\Agent>scconfig.exe --preboot-network detect

    If the network settings in the device pre-boot are the same as in the operating system, set ApplyManualSetting to False. Otherwise, the system network settings will never synchronize with the device preboot.
