This is a feature that enables advanced ecmd commands. It allows you to export and import settings using the command line (ecmd.exe). Until now, it was only possible to export settings using the GUI. ESET Mail Security configuration can be exported to an .xml file.
When you have enabled ESET CMD, there are two authorization methods available:
•None - no authorization. We do not recommend you this method because it allows importation of any unsigned configuration, which is a potential risk.
•Advanced setup password - a password is required to import a configuration from an .xml file, this file must be signed (see singing .xml configuration file further down). The password specified in Access Setup must be provided before a new configuration can be imported. If you do not have access setup enabled, your password does not match or the .xml configuration file is not signed, the configuration will not be imported.
Once ESET CMD is enabled, you can use the command line to import or export ESET Mail Security configurations. You can do it manually or create a script for the purpose of automation.
Signing an .xml configuration file:
1.Download XmlSignTool executable.
2.Open a Windows Command Prompt (cmd) using Run as administrator.
3.Navigate to the location of xmlsigntool.exe
4.Execute a command to sign the .xml configuration file, usage: xmlsigntool /version 1|2 <xml_file_path>
5.Enter and Re-enter your Advanced Setup Password when prompted by the XmlSignTool. Your .xml configuration file is now signed and can be used to import on another instance of ESET Mail Security with ESET CMD using the password authorization method.
