By default, SMEX 12.5 uses HTTPS to connect to ActiveUpdate (AU). For instances that a proxy may not be configured properly causing a pattern update failure, an alternative would be to use HTTP instead.

Follow these steps:

Always back up the whole registry before making any modifications. Incorrect changes to the registry can cause serious system problems.
  1. Connect to the AU HTTP server, and modify the following registry key value:

    Path:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\TrendMicro\ScanMail for Exchange\CurrentVersion
    Key: AUFromHTTPSServer
    Type: DWORD
    Value: Set to O (default is 1.)

  2. Enable custom update source option in the SMEX 12.5 UI by adding the following registry key:

    Path:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\TrendMicro\ScanMail for Exchange\CurrentVersion
    Key: AUFromOtherSource
    Type: DWORD
    Value: 1

  3. Verify AU manual update if it goes through.
