Installation of ESET Virtualization Security using deployment tool

The Deployment tool allows administrator to deploy ESET Virtualization Security on multiple ESXi hosts.

To download the Deployment tool click here. The evs_deployment_tool.zip file contains:

EvsaDeploymentTool.jar – a jar file used for deployment of ESET Virtualization Security.

deploy.bat – a script file that consists of command to be executed by the command line.

deploy-template.csv – a comma-separated values file that stores important values defined below.

deploy-two-hosts-minimal-example.csv an example of CSV file.

Complete the following prerequisites before you perform a batch deployment:

1.Configure your VMware vShield environment.

2.Create a vShield auditor user to allow the ESET Virtualization Security virtual machine to access information from vShield.

3.Deploy ERA Server (virtual appliance or normal installation).

4.Deploy vAgent Host (virtual appliance or normal installation).

5.Prepare a CSV file by using the provided templates (deploy-template.csv). Below is a list of the criteria defined in the .csv file:

Host – a specific host for which ESET Virtualization Security will be deployed

Folder – location where ESET Virtualization Security virtual machine should be placed (optional)

Resource pool – resource pool for ESET Virtualization Security virtual machine (optional)

Datastore – datastore where ESET Virtualization Security virtual machine disk will be stored, datastore must be available for selected host

Management Network – network for connection to ERA and vAgent Host

vShield network – network used for connection to vShield

EVSA Hostname – hostname used fo ESET Virtualization Security virtual machine

IPv4 address – ESET Virtualization Security virtual machine network configuration (if empty, DHCP is used)

IPv4 netmask – ESET Virtualization Security virtual machine network configuration (if empty, DHCP is used)

IPv4 gateway – ESET Virtualization Security virtual machine network configuration (if empty, DHCP is used)

IPv6 address – ESET Virtualization Security virtual machine network configuration (if empty, DHCP is used)

IPv6 gateway – ESET Virtualization Security virtual machine network configuration (if empty, DHCP is used)

DNS1 – ESET Virtualization Security virtual machine network configuration (if empty, DHCP is used)

DNS2 – ESET Virtualization Security virtual machine network configuration (if empty, DHCP is used)

ERA Server Hostname – hostname of ERA Server that will manage ESET Virtualization Security virtual machine

ERA Server Port – Port of ERA Server port that enables management of ESET Virtualization Security

ERA Agent Certificate Base64 – ERA Agent certificate as Base64 that will be used for authentication of ESET Virtualization Security virtual machine

ERA Agent Certificate Password – password to decrypt ERA Agent certificate

ERA Certification Authority Base64 – ERA certification authority that will be used for authentication of ERA Server

vAgent Host Hostname – hostname of vAgent Host

vAgent Host Port – port of vAgent Host

vAgent Host Agent Certificate Base64 – vAgent Host certificate as Base64 that will be used for authentication of ESET Virtualization Security virtual machine

vAgent Host Agent Certificate Password – password to decrypt vAgent Host certificate

6.Open a command line and run deploy.bat or java -jar EvsaDeploymentTool.jar.

7.Enter your vCenter hostname and administrator credentials.

8.Enter your vShield hostname and administrator credentials.

9.Enter the full path to the ESET Virtualization Security OVA file

10. Enter the full path to the CSV file you created in step 5.
