How to install Seqrite Encryption Manager console

01-11-2020 23:25:54

Overview: Seqrite Encryption Manager and Seqrite Volume Encryption both work together to perform seamless encryption and decryption process.

Seqrite Encryption Manager is a flexible and convenient tool for controlling client software on local and remote computers. Centrally managing a network of workstations immediately results in greater reliability and security - far superior to allowing a large organization of computers to independently run data protection software on their own.

Important Note: The installation program installs Seqrite Encryption Manager Server. Before running the installation program, ensure the target computer meets the prerequisites for running the Seqrite Encryption Manager Server previously outlined in the Seqrite Encryption Manager Prerequisites section of this document.

Applicable Versions:
Windows 7, 8 and 10 64 bit (Max version support build 20H2)

Windows server 2008, 2012 and 2016, 2019 64 bit (Max version support build 1903)


• Seqrite Encryption Manager default port (8443) should be allowed and it should not be used by any other application.

• If Seqrite Encryption Manager server is configured with hostname then the Seqrite Encryption Manager server must be accessible from the clients through Seqrite Encryption Manager hostname . If you want roaming users to connect with Seqrite Encryption Manager then hostname should be reachable from internet and from local network. You are requested to ensure that required DNS and Firewall port forwarding configurations are done so that Seqrite Encryption clients can resolve the configured hostname from internet and reach to Seqrite Encryption Manager console on port number 8443.

• Seqrite Encryption Manager server must be running and accessible from the client (SVE), where the encryption/decryption process is running. So that the rescue information can be communicated to Seqrite Encryption Manager Server.

Required software’s for SEM server

MYSQL Installation

In MySQL database, a new database should be created, named, jcm_global_database. Also, a MySQL user should exist with the custom user name, custom password and administrator privileges.

If MySQL 5.5 or higher version is already installed, open MySQL console and run these two commands:

mysql>grant all on *.* to 'user name'@'%' identified by 'password';

mysql>create database jcm_global_database;

Note: For MySQL 8.0 version

mysql>GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'root'@'%';

mysql>create database jcm_global_database;

If you install MySQL right now, you can create the user during installation:

Be sure that the user Role is set to “DB_admin” and Host is set to “All hosts”.
After installation is completed, open MySQL console and run the following command:

mysql>create database jcm_global_database


Downloading and installing SEM

Before installing SEM, make sure the target computer meets the prerequisites.

To install SEM, follow these steps:

1. Open the email received from Seqrite and click the SEM Agent download link.

2. The setup will check for Java on the computer; if older version is found, a prompt is displayed to uninstall the old version and download Java 8. Click

Download and Install Java.

After verifying the correct version of Java, the setup will continue with the installation.

The Welcome screen is displayed.

3. Read and accept the end user license agreement.

4. Select the Destination Directory.

5. Choose the name of the Program Folder as it will appear in the Start menu.

The local files will be copied during this step.

6. Set the SEM server IP address or Host name and click Generate Keys to generate a root certificate and encryption keys.

7. You can change the default communication port from 8443 to the desired free port.

Program checks for the correct MySQL configuration.

If MySQL is not configured and if you want to see which configurations are applied, click Check MySQL.

Note: On MySQL configuration dialog box, you must enter the loopback IP address ( and SEM Server does not accept mysql password as root.

SEM Server setup verifies if Redis is installed and properly configured.

If you have not changed the default Redis configuration, leave this field as is “”.
Otherwise, type the IP address that is reported in the file “” in the Redis program folder by clicking Check Redis. Click Next.
In new dialog box, click Start Server and then click Start Console in a Web Browser.

The SEM console opens in the default Web browser.

Alternatively, the SEM console can be accessed in the following ways:

§ Use the link, https://*.*.*.*:8443 (where *.*.*.* is the IP address of the SEM server computer).

§ If the server was installed on the same computer where SEM console is open, use the link; https://localhost:8443

Note: For SEM 1.2.3, it is mandatory to configure MySQL. You can configure MySQL while upgrading SEM or even at the time of new installation.
Log is not generated for any changes related to MySQL configuration.
