Advanced

The Advanced tab in the Server Options window allows you to access and modify the advanced settings for the server via the ESET Configuration Editor. You can open the Configuration Editor by clicking the Edit Advanced Settings... button on this tab. Please read the warning message and proceed carefully.

Advanced settings include the following:

Maximum disk space usage (percent) When exceeded, some server features may not be available. When connecting to ERAS, ERAC displays a notification if the limit is exceeded.

Preferred communication protocol encoding Defines the type of encoding. We recommend the default setting.

Enable MAC address renaming (from unknown to valid) After reinstalling from an ESET client solution that does not support sending a MAC address (e.g., ESET Endpoint Antivirus 2.x) to a client solution that does (e.g., a 3.x client), the old client record will be converted to the new one. We recommend the default setting (Yes).

Enable MAC address renaming (from valid to unknown) After reinstalling from an ESET client solution that does support sending a MAC address (e.g., ESET Endpoint Antivirus 3.x) to a client solution that does not (e.g., a 2.x client), the old client record will be converted to the new one. We recommend the default setting (No).

Enable MAC address renaming (from valid to another valid) Enables renaming of valid MAC addresses. The default value does not allow for renaming, which means that the MAC address is a part of the unique identification of clients. Disable this option if there are multiple entries for one PC. We also recommend disabling this option if a client is identified as the same client after the MAC address has been changed.

Enable computer name renaming Allows for renaming of client computers. If disabled, the computer name will be a part of the unique identification of clients.

Also use default server logon during push installation ERAS allows the user to set the username and password for logon script and email remote installation only. Enable this option to use the predefined values also for remote push installations.
