Troubleshoot Protection Scores

You can use this document to troubleshoot issues with your protection score within the Armor Management Portal (AMP). 

Specifically, you can use this document to troubleshoot an environment that is in a Needs Attention state. 


Pre-Troubleshooting Steps


Before you troubleshoot a specific error message, Armor recommends that you confirm the following characteristics for your Trend agent: 

  • Is installed
  • Is running properly
  • Can connect to the required IP addresses / ports


Verify that the Trend Agent is Installed 


Instructions
Windows
  1. As an administrator, open Powershell. 
  2. In the Armor Agent command line, run the following command to verify that the subagents are installed: 



Get-Service -displayname "trend*"
C:\.armor\opt\armor show subagents


  1. For Malware Protection, if Is Installed? is False, then run the following command to install the service: 

    C:\.armor\opt\armor add malwareprotection

    For Windows, a reboot will be required to complete the first installation.

Linux
  1. Obtain root access with (sudo -i).  
  2. Run the following command: 

    /opt/armor/armor show subagents
     Example Output
    $ /opt/armor/armor show subagents
    +------------------------+----------------+---------------+
    |        SUBAGENT        |    VERSION     | IS INSTALLED? |

Verify that the Trend agent is running properly


Instructions
Windows
  1. As an administrator, open Powershell. 
  2. Run the following command to verify that Trend is running: 

    Get-Service -displayname "trend*"
     Example Output
    > Get-Service -displayname "trend*"
     
    Status   Name               DisplayName

    Running  ds_agent           Trend Micro Deep Security Agent
    Running  ds_monitor         Trend Micro Deep Security Monitor
    Running  ds_notifier        Trend Micro Deep Security Notifier

You can also review the Services window for verification.  

Linux
  1. Using "ps", run the following command to verify that the ds_agent is running: 

    ps aux | grep ds_agent | grep -v grep
  2. The output should list several processes.  

    $ ps aux | grep ds_agent | grep -v grep
    root     11565  0.0  0.0 206360   636 ?        S    Aug16   0:00 /opt/ds_agent/ds_agent -w /var/opt/ds_agent -b -i -e /opt/ds_agent/ext

  7. If the service is not running, then run the following command to start the service: 

    sudo systemctl start ds_agent

If the service fails to start, then contact Armor Support.

Run the following command, and then copy the output into the support ticket to share with Armor Support. 

echo "-----------------Start-of-Armor-Troubleshooting-Script-Output-------------------" ; uptime ; sudo /opt/armor/armor show db | grep -i -e "coreinstanceid" -e "accountid" ; sudo /opt/ds_agent/dsa_query -c GetAgentStatus | grep -i -e "AgentStatus.pluginDownloadInProgress:" -e "AgentStatus.agentState:" -e "AgentStatus.dsmUrl:" ; sudo /opt/ds_agent/dsa_query -c GetComponentInfo | grep -i -e "Component.AM.driverOffline" -e "Component.AM.mode" -e "Component.CORE.version" -e "Component.AM.version.pattern.VSAPI" -e "Component.AM.cap.realtime" -e "Component.FWDPI.mode" -e "Component.IM.mode" ; systemctl -l status ds_agent ; echo "-------------------End-of-Armor-Troubleshooting-Script-Output-------------------"





Verify that the Trend agent can connect to the required IP addresses / ports


Instructions
Windows
  1. As an administrator, open Powershell. 
  2. Run the following command to verify that the Trend agent is able to connect to the required outbound IP addresses / ports: 

    tnc -computername 3a.epsec.armor.com -port 4119; tnc -computername 3a.epsec.armor.com -port 4120; tnc -computername 3a.epsec.armor.com -port 4122
     Expected Output
    > tnc -computername 3a.epsec.armor.com -port 4119; tnc -computername 3a.epsec.armor.com -port 4120; tnc -computername 3a.epsec.armor.com -port 4122
     
     
    ComputerName     : 3a.epsec.armor.com
    RemoteAddress    : 52.13.172.208
    RemotePort       : 4119
    InterfaceAlias   : Ethernet0
    SourceAddress    : 100.64.164.44
    TcpTestSucceeded : True
     
    ComputerName     : 3a.epsec.armor.com
    RemoteAddress    : 52.13.172.208
    RemotePort       : 4120
    InterfaceAlias   : Ethernet0
    SourceAddress    : 100.64.164.44
    TcpTestSucceeded : True
     
    ComputerName     : 3a.epsec.armor.com
    RemoteAddress    : 52.13.172.208
    RemotePort       : 4122
    InterfaceAlias   : Ethernet0
    SourceAddress    : 100.64.164.44
    TcpTestSucceeded : True
  3. Review the output to ensure that there is a connection. 

    For any failure connection, you must allow outbound connections to the following ports:

    • TCP Port 4119 is required for installation of the malware protection agent.
    • TCP Port 4120 is required for communication (hearbeats) to the Armor Trend Infrastructure.
    • TCP Port 4122 is required for communication to Relays and for updates.
Linux 

There are two options available for this test: 

Option 1: From a Script File
  1. Navigate to a directory where your user can execute permissions, such as the user's home directory:
    • cd ~
  2. In this directory, create a new bash script file:
    • touch connectiontest.sh
  3. In the text editor of your choice, edit this file to include the entire connection test script: 
    • nano connectiontest.sh
    • vim connectiontest.sh
    • emacs connectiontest.sh
  4. Save the file using the method dictated by your text editor of choice.
  5. Add the executable bit to the file:
    • chmod +x connectiontest.sh
  6. Execute the following script:
    • ./connectiontest.sh
Option 2: Directly from BASH
  1. Type an open parenthesis:
    • (
  2. Hit the Enter key.
  3. Paste the entire connection test script.

  4. Hit the Enter key.
  5. Type a close parenthesis:
    • )
  6. Hit the Enter key to run script.

Troubleshooting


Installation or Configuration 

You can use this section to troubleshoot the following errors: 

  • Malware Protection is not installed or configured
  • FIM is not installed
  • FIM is installed but has not been configured
  • IDS is not installed or enabled

Armor Complete users will never see IDS errors because IDS is only installed with Armor Anywhere. 


Instructions
Windows
  1. As an administrator, open PowerShell. 
  2. Run the following command: 

    & $Env:ProgramFiles"\Trend Micro\Deep Security Agent\dsa_query" -c GetComponentInfo

    When this error is encountered, the output will be limited.

     Example of failed output
    > & $Env:ProgramFiles"\Trend Micro\Deep Security Agent\dsa_query" -c GetComponentInfo
     
    Component.AM.mode: not-capable
    Component.FWDPI.driverState: 3
    Component.LI.mode: off
  3. If the above command failed, verify that Anti-Malware has been installed. 
  4. If you do not see the C:\Program files\Trend Micro folder, then remove and re-install Malware protection, and then reboot after 10 minutes. 

    C:\.armor\opt\armor remove antimalware
    C:\.armor\opt\armor add antimalware
  5. As an administrator, open PowerShell, run the following command to confirm that the service is running successfully:

    get-service -displayname "trend*"
  6. If the service is in a bad state, then your output will match the following example, with only 3 services listed. This output indicates that the AMSP service is not installed, and that the agent is currently running in a limited capacity. In this case, you may have not received a policy or your agent has not been activated.

    > get-service -displayname "trend*"
     
    Status      Name             DisplayName
    ------       ----                 -----------
    Running   ds_agent       Trend Micro Deep Security Agent
    Running   ds_monitor    Trend Micro Deep Security Monitor
    Running   ds_notifier     Trend Micro Deep Security Notifier
  7. If your agent did not activate, then run the following command:

    C:\.armor\opt\armor add malwareprotection
  8. After 5 minutes, reboot the service. 
  9. After the reboot, verify that your services are running, which should return the following output: 

    > get-service -displayname "trend*"

  1. Run the following command to determine if a component of the anti-malware agent did not install correctly: 

    sudo /opt/ds_agent/dsa_query -c GetComponentInfo
  2. If the components were installed correctly, then you will see an output similar to the following:

     Expected Output
    $ sudo /opt/ds_agent/dsa_query -c GetComponentInfo
    Component.AM.cap.Qrestore: true
    Component.AM.cap.realtime: true
    Component.AM.cap.spyware: false

    Component.LI.mode: off
    Component.WRS.mode: off
  3. Verify that the command line Component.AM.mode: is on, and not not-capable.
  4. If the previously run command returns the following output, you will need to reinstall the malwareprotection sub-agent.   

    $ sudo /opt/ds_agent/dsa_query -c GetComponentInfo
    Component.AM.mode: not-capable
    Component.FWDPI.driverState: 3
    Component.LI.mode: off
  5. Run the following commands to re-install the malwareprotection subagent: 

    sudo /opt/armor/armor remove malwareprotection
    sudo /opt/armor/armor add malwareprotection
  6. After the re-installation process is complete, you must wait between 30 minutes to an hour to download and update the agent's components. You can then run the following command to confirm the desired results: 

    sudo /opt/ds_agent/dsa_query -c GetComponentInfo
  7. If you still see an error, then contact Armor Support. Within the ticket, paste the output from the following command: 

    Information Gathering Script for Escalations
    echo "-----------------Start-of-Armor-Troubleshooting-Script-Output-------------------" ; uptime ; sudo /opt/armor/armor show db | grep -i -e "coreinstanceid" -e "accountid" ; sudo /opt/ds_agent/dsa_query -c GetAgentStatus | grep -i -e "AgentStatus.pluginDownloadInProgress:" -e "AgentStatus.agentState:" -e "AgentStatus.dsmUrl:" ; sudo /opt/ds_agent/dsa_query -c GetComponentInfo | grep -i -e "Component.AM.driverOffline" -e "Component.AM.mode" -e "Component.CORE.version" -e "Component.AM.version.pattern.VSAPI" -e "Component.AM.cap.realtime" -e "Component.FWDPI.mode" -e "Component.IM.mode" ; systemctl -l status ds_agent ; echo "-------------------End-of-Armor-Troubleshooting-Script-Output-------------------"





Heartbeat /  Communication 

You can use this section to troubleshoot the following errors: 

  • Malware Protection has not provided a heartbeat in the past 4 hours.
  • FIM has not provided a heartbeat in the past 4 hours.
  • IDS has not provided a heartbeat in the past 4 hours.

Armor Complete users will never see IDS errors because IDS is only installed with Armor Anywhere. 


Instructions

  4. Run the following command to initiate a heartbeat to the Armor Malware Protection Infrastructure manually: 

    & $Env:ProgramFiles"\Trend Micro\Deep Security Agent\dsa_control" -m
  5. Review the desired output. This will indicate that your virtual machine is able to connect to the Armor Malware Protection Infrastructure, and the agent will reach out to the Armor Malware Protection Infrastructure to update the status, as well as obtain policy updates and more: 

    > & $Env:ProgramFiles"\Trend Micro\Deep Security Agent\dsa_control" -m
    HTTP Status: 200 - OK
    Response:
    Manager contact has been scheduled to occur in the next few seconds.
    • In AMP, the  not provided a heartbeat in the past 4 hours error message will be removed within an hour.

  6. If this error message continues to display in AMP, run the following command as an administrator in PowerShell:

    tnc -computername 3a.epsec.armor.com -port 4119; tnc -computername 3a.epsec.armor.com -port 4120; tnc -computername 3a.epsec.armor.com -port 4122

    If you encounter a failure, you may have a firewall conflict that requires intervention. 

    Port Information:

    • TCP Port 4119 is required for installation of the malware protection agent.
    • TCP Port 4120 is required for Heartbeats and communication to the Armor Malware Protection Infrastructure.
    • TCP Port 4122 is required for communication to Antimalware Infrastructure and updates.
  7. If connectivity is successful and Armor Support has not yet been contacted, re-register the malware protection agent:

    > C:\.armor\opt\armor add malwareprotection
  8. If the error has not cleared, please contact Armor Support. Within the ticket, provide the information  / results that you have gathered so far.
Linux

This issue often occurs if a server has been powered off, or if connectivity to the Armor Malware Protection Infrastructure has been blocked.

  1. Assuming that the server is powered on, run the following command to ensure that the Malware Protection agent is running: 

    systemctl status ds_agent
  2. Review the output to verify that there are 4 separate processes, including /opt/ds_agent/ds_agent and/opt/ds_agent/ds_am

  3. If you do not find that these processes are running, then you may need to restart the ds_agent, or reinstall the malwareprotection agent.

  4. To restart the ds_agent service, run the following command:

    sudo systemctl stop ds_agent; sudo systemctl start ds_agent
  5. To reinstall the malwareprotection agent, run the following command:

    sudo /opt/armor/armor remove malwareprotection; sudo /opt/armor/armor add malwareprotection
  6. If the ds_agent is running with all 4 expected processes, run the following command to manually heartbeat the agent: 

    sudo /opt/ds_agent/dsa_control -m
  7. Review the following output for a successful heartbeat: 

    $ sudo /opt/ds_agent/dsa_control -m
    HTTP Status: 200 - OK
    Response:
    Manager contact has been scheduled to occur in the next few seconds.
  8. If you do not see HTTP Status: 200 - OK, then you must test the connectivity to ensure that your firewall rules are working properly.

    There are two ways to test for connectivity: 

    Option 1: From a Script File
    1. Navigate to a directory where your user can execute permissions, such as the user's home directory:
      • cd ~
    2. In this directory, create a new bash script file:
      • touch connectiontest.sh
    3. In the text editor of your choice, edit this file to include the entire connection test script: 
      • nano connectiontest.sh
      • vim connectiontest.sh
      • emacs connectiontest.sh
    4. Save the file using the method dictated by your text editor of choice.
    5. Add the executable bit to the file:
      • chmod +x connectiontest.sh
    6. Execute the following script:
      • ./connectiontest.sh
    Option 2: Directly from BASH
    1. Type an open parenthesis:
      • (
    2. Hit the Enter key.
    3. Paste the entire connection test script.

    4. Hit the Enter key.
    5. Type a close parenthesis:
      • )
    6. Hit the Enter key to run script.

Failure Update 

You can use this section to troubleshoot the following errors: 

  • Malware Protection has experienced an update failure, and is still in operation.

Instructions
Windows

This error usually resolves itself after the agent has heartbeated a few times; however, if it hasn't, then a manual update will be required.

  1. As an administrator, open PowerShell. 
  2. Run the following command: 

    & $Env:ProgramFiles"\Trend Micro\Deep Security Agent\dsa_control" -U
     Expected output
    > & $Env:ProgramFiles"\Trend Micro\Deep Security Agent\dsa_control" -U
    HTTP Status: 200 - OK
    'SecurityUpdate' process started.
    Response:
    <Message>
     <Response code='0' cmd='UpdateComponent'/>
    </Message>

    This will specifically request an update for security definitions from the Armor Malware Protection Infrastructure, and should resolve the error in about an hour. 


  3. If the above command failed, run the following commands IN ORDER to make sure the modules are set to be updated automatically:

    & $Env:ProgramFiles"\Trend Micro\Deep Security Agent\dsa_control" -m "UpdateComponent:true"
     
    & $Env:ProgramFiles"\Trend Micro\Deep Security Agent\dsa_control" -m "UpdateConfiguration:true"
     
    & $Env:ProgramFiles"\Trend Micro\Deep Security Agent\dsa_control" -m
  4. If the issue still persists, then contact Armor Support. Within the ticket, be sure to provide the output from the previously run commands.

Reboot after Installation 

You can use this section to troubleshoot the following error: 

  • Reboot is required for Malware Protection.


Instructions
Windows

When installed for the first time, Windows requires a reboot to finalize the changes being made to the registry. If you reboot when the installation prompts you, then you should not receive this error.

If you do receive this error, it means too much time has passed between installation & rebooting, and you'll need to contact Armor Support to manually refresh your Malware Protection Agent status via the Armor Malware Protection Infrastructure. 

  1. Run the following command, and include the output within the ticket:

    Write-Host "-----------------Start-of-Armor-Troubleshooting-Script-Output-------------------" ; systeminfo | Select-String "System Boot*" ; C:\.armor\opt\armor show db | Select-String -Pattern '(AccountId)|(CoreInstanceId)' ; & $Env:ProgramFiles"\Trend Micro\Deep Security Agent\dsa_query" -c GetAgentStatus | Select-String -Pattern '\.(agentState|dsmUrl|pluginDownloadInProgress)' ; & $Env:ProgramFiles"\Trend Micro\Deep Security Agent\dsa_query" -c GetComponentInfo | Select-String -Pattern '(Component.AM.driverOffline)|(Component.AM.mode)|(Component.CORE.version)|(Component.AM.version.pattern.VSAPI)|(Component.AM.cap.realtime)|(Component.FWDPI.mode)|(Component.IM.mode)' ; Get-Service -displayname "trend*" | ft ; Write-Host "-------------------End-of-Armor-Troubleshooting-Script-Output-------------------"
