If you do not see any product installation files, make sure you have the repository set to AUTOSELECT, see Advanced settings section of Server settings.

3.License (Optional) - you can add a license using one of the methods described in the Licenses section. If you already have existing licenses in License Management, simply choose the license that will be used to activate your ESET security product during the installation. If you do not choose a license, you can create an installer without it and activate the product later.

4.Initial installer configuration - you can choose from the two configuration types:

Click Select and choose from the list of available policies. If none of the predefined policies are suitable, you can create a new policy or customize your existing policy first. When you try selecting the policy again, your new policy will appear in the list.
