Other Settings

The Other settings pane lets you configure advanced options of ESET ERA Console.

1.Filter settings

Auto Apply Changes If enabled, filters in individual tabs will generate new outputs each time the filter settings are modified. Otherwise the filtering will only take place after you click Apply Changes.

NOTE: If ERA Console has a full-time connection to an ERA Server from the administrator’s PC, we recommend that you select Show on taskbar when minimized and leave the console minimized when inactive. If a problem occurs, the systray icon will turn red – which is a signal for the administrator to intervene. We also recommend that you enable Use highlighted systray icon when problematic clients found – events triggering the change of the icon color.

Remote administrator updates This section allows you to check for new versions of ESET Remote Administrator. We recommend that you use the default value (monthly). If a new version is available, the ERA Console will display a notification at startup.

2.Other settings

Use automatic refresh Automatic data refresh in individual tabs on your specified interval.

Show gridlines Select this option to separate individual cells in all tabs using gridlines.

Prefer showing Client as "Server/Name" instead of "Server/Computer/MAC" – Affects the display mode for clients in some dialog windows (for example, New task). This change is visual only.

Use systray icon – ERA Console will be represented by a Windows system tray icon.

Show on taskbar when minimized If the ERA Console window is minimized, it will be accessible from the Windows taskbar.

Use highlighted systray icon when problematic clients found – Click Edit next to this setting to specify events that will trigger a change of the systray icon color.

Note: The systray icon will also change if the ignore list is updated, the default search task is finished, a new client is added or a client is deleted. This does not necessarily happen immediately, there could be a delay of 5-15 seconds plus the time needed to merge (in general the merging happens instantly).

Use hostname instead of IP address when executing a Network action - When executing network actions on a client (described in the Clients tab section), you can select to use a hostname instead of an IP address.
