You can use policies to configure your ESET product. Policies for ESET Virtualization Security are created and managed from the ESET Remote Administrator Webconsole in the Admin > Policies tab. Click Policies at the bottom and select New from the context menu.
Policies are used to push specific configurations to ESET products running on client computers. This allows you to avoid configuring each client's ESET product manually. A policy can be applied directly to individual Computers (virtual machines) as well as groups (Static and Dynamic). You can also assign multiple policies to a virtual machine or a group.
Policies are applied in the order that Static Groups are arranged. This is not true for Dynamic Groups, where policies are enforced on child Dynamic Groups first. This allows you to apply policies with greater impact at the top of the Group tree and apply more specific policies for subgroups. Using flags, an ERA user with access to groups located higher in the tree can override the policies of lower Groups. The algorithm is explained in detail in How Policies are applied to clients.
The policy applied to a client is usually the result of multiple policies being merged into one final policy.
