Export and other features of client XML configuration

From ERAC, select any clients in the Clients tab. Right-click and select Configuration… from the context menu. Click Save As… to export the assigned configuration of the given client to an .xml file (.xml configuration files can also be extracted directly from the ESET Endpoint Security program interface). The .xml file can be used afterwards for various operations:

For remote installations, the .xml file can be used as a template for a predefined configuration. This means that no new .xml file is created and the existing .xml file is assigned (Select…) to a new install package. The .xml configuration files can also be extracted directly from the ESET Endpoint Security program interface.

For configuring multiple clients, selected clients receive a previously downloaded .xml file and adopt the settings which are defined in the file (no new configuration is created, only assigned by the Select… button).

Example

An ESET security product is only installed on one workstation. Adjust the settings directly through the program’s user interface. When finished, export the settings to an .xml file. This .xml file can then be used for remote installations to other workstations. This method can be very useful for tasks such as fine-tuning firewall rules, if the ”Policy-based” mode is to be applied.
