Web Console installation - Linux

Follow these steps to install ESMC Web Console:

note

Note

You can install the ESMC Web Console on a different computer than the computer where the ESMC Server is installed. This requires additional steps.

1.Install the Apache Tomcat and Java packages. Apache Tomcat is a mandatory component required to run the ESMC Web Console. Apache Tomcat requires Java/OpenJDK. Use the terminal commands depending on your Linux distribution(s). Example package names below may differ from packages available in your Linux distribution repository.

Debian and Ubuntu distributions

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install openjdk-11-jdk tomcat9

CentOS, Red Hat and Fedora distributions

yum update
yum install java-1.8.0-openjdk tomcat

OpenSUSE

zypper refresh
zypper install java-1_8_0-openjdk tomcat

2.Download the Web Console file (era.war):

wget https://download.eset.com/com/eset/apps/business/era/webconsole/latest/era.war

3.Copy the era.war file to the Tomcat folder:

Debian and Ubuntu distributions

sudo cp era.war /var/lib/tomcat9/webapps/

CentOS, Red Hat and Fedora distributions

sudo cp era.war /var/lib/tomcat/webapps/

OpenSUSE distribution

sudo cp era.war /usr/share/tomcat/webapps/

Alternatively, you can extract the contents of era.war to /var/lib/tomcat/webapps/era/

4.Restart the Tomcat service and deploy the .war file:

Debian and Ubuntu distributions

sudo service tomcat9 restart

CentOS, Red Hat and Fedora distributions

sudo service tomcat restart

OpenSUSE distribution

sudo service tomcat restart

5.If you installed ESMC Web Console on a different computer than ESMC Server, perform these additional steps to enable communication between ESMC Web Console and ESMC Server:

I.Stop the Tomcat service: sudo service tomcat9 stop.

II.Edit the EraWebServerConfig.properties file:

sudo nano /var/lib/tomcat/webapps/era/WEB-INF/classes/sk/eset/era/g2webconsole/server/modules/config/EraWebServerConfig.properties

If the EraWebServerConfig.properties file is not located in the above path, you can use the following command to find the file on your system:

find / -iname "EraWebServerConfig.properties"

III.Find the server_address=localhost.

IV.Replace localhost with the IP address of your ESMC Server and save the file.

V.Restart the Tomcat service: sudo service tomcat9 restart

Test the connection to ESMC Web Console after installation. Open the following link in a supported web browser on localhost (a login screen should be displayed):

http://localhost:8080/era or, if you access the server remotely, http://IP_ADDRES_OR_HOSTNAME:8080/era

note

Note

HTTP port, by default 8080, is set during manual Apache Tomcat installation. You can also set up HTTPS connection for Apache Tomcat.
