How to enable and configure the Mirror

If the Mirror is directly integrated into ERA, connect to ERAS using ERAC and follow these steps:

From the ERAC click Tools > Server Options… > Updates.

From the Update server: drop-down menu, select Choose Automatically (updates will be downloaded from ESET’s servers), or enter the URL/UNC path to a Mirror server.

Set the Update interval for updates (we recommend sixty minutes).

If you selected Choose Automatically in the previous step, insert the username (Update username) and password (Update password) which were sent after purchase. If accessing an upper server, enter a valid domain username and password for that server.

Select the Create update mirror option and enter a path to the folder which will store the update files. By default this is a relative path to the Mirror folder. As long as the check box next to Provide update files via internal HTTP server is selected, updates are available on the HTTP port defined in HTTP server port (by default 2221). Set Authentication to NONE (For more information see chapter Operation of the Mirror server).

NOTE: In case of problems with updates, select the Clear Update Cache option to flush the folder in which temporary update files are stored.

The Mirror Downloaded PCU option allows you to activate mirroring of program components. To set up PCU mirroring go to Advanced > Edit Advanced Settings and configure settings in ESET Remote Administrator > ERA Server > Setup > Mirror.

Select the language components to be downloaded in Advanced > Edit Advanced Settings… the branch ERA Server > Setup > Mirror > Create Mirror for the selected program components. Components for all language versions to be used in the network should be selected. Note that downloading a language version not installed in the network will unnecessarily increase network traffic.

The Mirror feature is also available directly from the program interface in ESET Endpoint Security Business Edition and ESET Endpoint Antivirus Business Edition, ESET Endpoint Security or ESET Endpoint Antivirus. It is left to the administrator’s discretion as to which is used to implement the Mirror server.

To activate and launch the Mirror server from ESET Endpoint Security Business Edition or ESET Endpoint Antivirus Business Edition, follow these steps:

1)Install ESET Endpoint Security Business Edition , ESET Endpoint Antivirus Business Edition (client version 4.X), ESET Endpoint Security or ESET Endpoint Antivirus.

2)In the Advanced Setup window (F5), click Miscellaneous > Licenses. Click Add… , browse for the *.lic file and click Open. This will install the license and allow configuration of the Mirror feature.

3)From the Update branch click Setup… and click the Mirror tab.

4)Select the check boxes next to Create update mirror and Provide update files via internal HTTP server.

5)Enter the full directory path to the folder (Folder to store mirrored files) where update files are to be stored.

6)The Username and Password serve as authentication data for client workstations attempting to gain access to the Mirror folder. In most cases, it is not required to populate these fields.

7)Set Authentication to NONE.

8)Select components to be downloaded (components for all language versions which will be used in the network should be selected). Components are only displayed if they are available from ESET’s update servers.

NOTE: To maintain optimal functionality, we recommend that you enable downloading and mirroring of program components. If this option is disabled, only the virus signature database is updated, not program components. If the Mirror is used as a part of ERA, this option can be configured in the ERAC through Tools > Server Options… > Advanced tab > Edit Advanced Settings… > ESET Remote Administrator > ERA Server > Setup > Mirror. Enable all program language versions present in your network.

NOTE: To configure the mirror to use the HTTPS protocol for the client updates, navigate to ERAC > Tools > Server Options… > Advanced tab > Edit Advanced Settings… > ESET Remote Administrator > ERA Server > Setup > Mirror > Protocol > HTTPS.
