After a successful installation of ESET Remote Administrator, it is necessary to deploy the ERA Agent on client computers in your network. This section describes all available methods you can use to deploy ERA Agent. It is very important because ESET security solutions running on client computers communicate with ERA Server exclusively through the Agent.

After the successful installation of ESET Remote Administrator and ESET Remote Administrator initial configuration deployment consists of following steps:

1.Add client computers to ERA group structure, it is necessary to deploy the ERA Agent and ESET Endpoint protection to the computers in the network.

2.Agent deployment process - you can choose from Local deployment or Remote deployment.

3.Create a policy to apply your custom settings - this policy will be enforced by the Agent as soon as the software is installed. See step 4 for details.

4.ESET Endpoint protection deployment - allow you to use the software install task to install ESET security products.
