Replication

To set the ERA Server settings, click Tools > Server options from the main program window of the ERA Console.

Replication is used in large networks where multiple ERA Servers are installed (e.g., a company with several branches). The Replication settings tab lets you set up data replication between multiple ERA Servers running in your network. To learn how to setup multiple ERA Servers in your organization see chapter Setting up RA servers in large networks.

To set up replication use the following replication options:

Replication “to” settings

Enable “to” replication – Enables replication in a large network as described in the chapter Replication.

Upper server – IP address or name of the upper ERA server, which will collect data from the local ERA server.

Port - Specifies port used for replication.

Replicate every XX minutes – Sets the replication interval.

Replicate: Threat log, Firewall log, Event log, Scan log, Mobile log, Quarantine log - if these options are selected, all information displayed on the Clients, Threat Log, Firewall Log, Event Log, Scan Log, Tasks tab, Mobile Log and Quarantine Log is replicated in individual columns and lines. Information not stored directly in the database, but in individual files (i.e., .txt or .xml format) may not be replicated. Enable these options to also replicate entries in those files.

Automatically replicate: Client details, Threat log details, Scan log details, Mobile log details, Quarantine files - these options enable automatic replication of the complementary information stored in individual files (they can also be downloaded on demand by clicking Request).

Log type – Defines the type of events to be replicated (alert, event, scan) to the upper ERA server.

Automatically replicate… – Enables periodic replication. When not enabled the replication can be triggered manually.

Replication "to" status

Replicate Up Now – Initiates the replication process.

Mark all clients for replication – If enabled, all clients will be replicated, including those with no changes.

Replication “From” settings

Enable “from” replication – Enables the local ERA server to collect data from other servers listed in the Allowed servers field. Use a comma to separate multiple ERA servers.

Allow replication from any server – If this check box is checked, you can replicate from any server. Checking this check box disables the Allowed servers field.
