Summary

There is a new, stronger server authentication feature that ensures the OfficeScan client only accepts data, configuration, and policy from the OfficeScan server.

Sometimes, the OfficeScan client receives system event logs regarding invalid notification. This may be because the server and client have different certificates (OfcNTCer.dat).

  2. Prepare the certificate package.
    1. Generate the config.ini file with following content:

      [Attribute]
      ID = 704
      BinaryName_x86 = IpXfer.exe
      BinaryName_x64 = IpXfer_x64.exe
      Version = 12.0.0.1354
      ReleaseDate = 20140812
      PackageMode = 3

      [Functionality]
      CommandOption = -e OfcNTCer.dat -t toolbox
      TimeOutAfterExecute = 180

       
      For OfficeScan XG, CommandOption = -e OfcNTCer.dat -pwd <unload password> -t toolbox
    2. Access the PCCSRV\PCCNT\COMMON\ folder of the server machine.
    3. Copy the OfcNTCer.dat file.
    4. Go to the OSCE server. 
    5. Proceed to …Admin\utility\ipxfer and access ipxfer.exe and IpXfer_x64.exe files.
    6. Copy the ipxfer tool (32/64 bits).
    7. Compress the config.ini, ipxfer.exe, IpXfer_x64.exe, and OfcNTCer.dat files into a .zip file. The .zip file should contain these 4 files directly, without any subfolders.
  3. Deploy server’s certificate globally to all clients.
    1. Go to ToolBox management page.

    2. Select the sub-domain and click Deploy.

    3. Browse the zip file and deploy it to the client side (i.e. Certificate.zip).

      OfficeScan ToolBox

    4. Go to the ToolBox management console to check the deployment status.

    5. Verify that the file has been deployed on the client side. The original file will be renamed as a BAK file.

The tool will only work if an operational ofcNTcer.dat file already exists in the clients program directory. Be careful not to delete the wrong ofcNTcer.dat manually because the wrong ofcNTcer.dat will be replaced.
