Logon / email remote install

The logon and email remote installation methods are very similar. They only vary in the way that the einstaller.exe agent is delivered to client workstations. ERA allows the agent to run via logon script or via email. The einstaller.exe agent can also be used individually and run via other methods (for more information, see the chapter Custom remote install).

The logon method works well for notebooks that are often used outside the local network. Installation is performed after they log onto the domain.

While the logon script runs automatically when the user logs on, the email method requires intervention on the part of the user who must launch the einstaller.exe agent from an email attachment. If launched repeatedly, einstaller.exe will not trigger another installation of ESET client solutions. For more information see chapter Avoiding repeated installations.

For a step-by-step guide on how to export the ESET Installer to Folder / Logon Script or how to send it via e-mail, see this chapter.

 

Remote installation of ESET Security Products for Android

Important: Before you proceed, read this chapter first.

1.Click the New Installation Task... button in the Remote Install tab of ERA Console, select Android and click Continue.

2.Click the ... button near the Attachment field, then browse for the location where you saved your ESET Security product for Android (.apk file), select that application and click OK.

3.Enter the email address of the user, review or edit the information in the Subject and Description fields and click the ... button next to the configuration link (right under the description field). This will open the Configuration Link Settings window, where you can configure how the product connects to ERA.

Note: This link will configure the ESET Security product for Android, which needs to be installed (You can send a link with the installation file to the user, or you can send the application directly, as described in Step 1).

4.The Server and Port fields are predefined based on your current ERA Server. If there is a password required for the users to connect to the server, type it into the Password field. Otherwise, you can leave this field blank. If you use a password, the Add current SIM as trusted option must be selected. It is selected by default to prevent the mobile phone from being locked when trying to connect to the ERA Server. These basic settings will be sent to the client. For advanced settings (such as the update Username and Password), the client needs to be connected to the ERA Server and you can distribute these settings using a Policy.
