Install ERA Proxy

validation-status-icon-error WARNING: Never install ERA Server and ERA Proxy on the same computer!

1.Make sure all prerequisites are met.

2.Open the installation package and click Next on the Welcome screen.


3.Select Install Remote Administrator Proxy and click Next.


4.Select the components that you want to install. If you do not have a database server, you can install Microsoft SQL Server Express, which is included in the installation package (not recommended for Enterprise and/or large networks!). You can also install ESET RD Sensor from the installation package.


5.If you chose to have Microsoft SQL Server Express installed in step 3, a database connection check will be performed - skip to Proxy configuration. If you have an existing database server, you will be prompted to enter your database connection details in the next step.

Enter the following information to allow your database connection:

a.Database: MySQL Server/MS SQL Server/MS SQL Server via Windows Authentication

b.ODBC Driver: MySQL ODBC 5.1 Driver/MySQL ODBC 5.2 Unicode Driver/MySQL ODBC 5.3 Unicode Driver/SQL Server/SQL Server Native Client 10.0/ODBC Driver 11 for SQL Server

c.Hostname: Hostname or the IP Address of the database server

d.The port used for connection with the Server

e.Database admin account Username/Password

validation-status-icon-infoNOTE: When installation is in progress, ERA installation Wizard is unresponsive.


If you entered SA account or root account in the previous window, click Yes to continue using the SA/root account as the database user for ESET Remote Administrator.


If you click No, you must select Create new user (if you have not already created one) or Use existing user (if you have a dedicated database user account as mentioned here).


This step will verify your connection to the database. If the connection is OK, you can proceed to the next step.

6.Configure the proxy connection to ESET Remote Administrator. Enter a Server host (hostname/IP address of the Server) and Server port (2222).


7.Select a Peer Certificate exported from ERA Web Console and a password for this certificate. Optionally, add a Certificate Authority. This is only required when unsigned certificates are used.


8.The ERA Agent will be installed in addition to ERA Proxy. Follow the steps on-screen to complete installation if ERA Agent is not already installed.
