ESET Inspect Server Installation

There are several possible ways to install the ESET Inspect Server:

Using Graphical User Interface provided by the installer. A recommended way of installation.

Using ESET PROTECT Deployment


Remember that upgrade will need additional free space depending on the number of endpoints. It will never need more space than the database size. The installer checks exact space requirements.


When the ESET Inspect Server service starts, the following process function executes:

Purge - Clean old data from the database. By default, it executes at midnight, checks all the data older than 30 days, and deletes them (events, processes, and computers that do not send any data for 30 days). You can change the interval of the purge in the Server settings tab.

When you lower the time frame set for purge, it takes several days to clean up old data before the new setting takes effect.
