Check the status log on a client machine (located at C:\ProgramData\ESET\RemoteAdministrator\Agent\EraAgentApplicationData\Logs\status.html or C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Eset\RemoteAdministrator\Agent\EraAgentApplicationData\Logs\status.hmtl) to verify ERA Agent is working properly. If there are problems with the Agent (for example, it is not connecting to the ERA Server), see section Troubleshooting - Agent deployment.
