ERA Agent deployment can be performed in a few different ways. You can deploy the Agent:
Locally - using an Agent installation package or Agent Live Installers, for example, if problems occur during remote deployment
Local deployment can be performed in three ways:
The Remote Agent deployment server task can be used for mass distribution of the Agent to client computers. It is the most convenient distribution method since it can be performed from Web Console without the need to deploy the Agent to each computer manually.
ERA Agent is very important because ESET security solutions running on client computers communicate with ERA Server exclusively through the Agent.
NOTE: Should you experience problems when deploying the ERA Agent remotely (the Server task Agent deployment fails) see the Troubleshooting guide.
