How to configure a mirror

ESET Endpoint Antivirus can be configured to store copies of detection engine update files and distribute updates to other workstations running ESET Endpoint Antivirus or ESET Endpoint Security.


Update mirror creates copies of update files that can be used to update workstations that are running the same generation of the ESET Endpoint Antivirus for Windows (for example, ESET Endpoint Antivirus for Windows version 10.x creates update files only for version 10.x ESET Endpoint Antivirus for Windows and ESET Endpoint Security for Windows).

Configuring ESET Endpoint Antivirus as a Mirror server to provide updates via an internal HTTP server

  1. Press F5 to access Advanced setup and expand Update > Profiles > Update Mirror.
  2. Expand Updates and ensure the Choose automatically option under Modules updates is enabled.
  3. Expand Update mirror and enable Create update mirror and Enable HTTP server.

Configuring a Mirror server to provide updates via a shared network folder

  1. Create a shared folder on a local or network device. This folder must be readable by all users running ESET security solutions and writable from the local SYSTEM account.
  2. Activate Create update mirror under Advanced setup > Update > Profiles > Update Mirror.
  3. Choose an appropriate Storage folder by clicking Clear and then Edit. Browse and select the created shared folder.


If you do not want to provide module updates via the internal HTTP server, disable Enable HTTP server.
