Cluster wizard - Cluster setup settings

Define certificate distribution mode and whether to install the product on other nodes or not.

Certificate distribution

Automatic remote - Certificate will be installed automatically.

Manual - Click Generate and select the appropriate folder to store the certificates. A root certificate as well as a certificate for each node, including the one (local machine) from which you are setting up the ESET Cluster, will be created. To enroll the certificate on the local machine, click Yes.

Product install to other nodes

Automatic remote - ESET Mail Security will be installed automatically on each node (provided their operating systems are the same architecture).

Manual - Manually install ESET Mail Security (for example, when you have different OS architectures on some nodes).

Push license to nodes without activated product

ESET Security automatically activates ESET Solutions installed on nodes without licenses.


To create an ESET Cluster with a mixed operating system architecture (32 bit and 64 bit), install ESET Mail Security manually. Operating systems in use will be detected during next steps and you will see this information in the log window.
