Trend Micro’s IMSVA is one great product, and it has been discussed on this page before. Mike Carter wrote a piece on IMSVA version 8.0 titled “SOON TO BE RELEASED” TREND MICRO IMSVA8.0 = BEST OF BOTH WORLDS back in September of 2010. And Liz Wilmes wrote a piece on IMSVA in December of 2010 called eGROUP APPLAUDS TEH NEWEST RELEASE OF TREND MICRO INTERSCAN MESSAGING SECURITY VIRTUAL APLIANCE FOR CLOUD INNOVATION.
I came across an issue the other day where a Trend Micro IMSVA needed a little assistance. I was not able to log into the web console and check the status, as the web service was stopped. I could get the console of the virtual appliance, and these commands came in very handy in getting the server back on its feet in no time. Hopefuly this will help you too:
1. Access the OS shell of IMSVA as root
2. Go to the following directory
3. Start the following services:
bash# ./S99IMSS start
bash# ./S99ADMINUI start
bash# ./S99MANAGER start
4. Double check that SPAM filtering and mail flow are back online & double check that you can access the web management page again.
You should be all set.
Once the server was back online I had an opportunity to double check and confirm via the management page that everything was operational. In the event you are using Trend Micro’s IMSVA, which I highly recommend, you might find the above commands helpful.
