Remote deployment

Important

For remote deployments, verify all client computers have an internet connection.

Remote deployment can be performed in the following ways:

ESET Remote Deployment Tool - this tool allows you to deploy the ESET Management Agent (and ESET security product) installer packages created in the ESET PROTECT Web Console.

Group Policy Object (GPO) and System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) - we recommend this method for mass deployment of the ESET Management Agent on client computers.

Agent Deployment Server task - an alternative to GPO and SCCM.

Should you experience problems when deploying the ESET Management Agent remotely (the Server task Agent deployment fails), see the following:

Example scenarios of ESET Management Agent deployment

Remote deployment and permissions

If you want to allow user to create GPO installers or SCCM scripts, set their permissions to match our example.

The following permissions are necessary for Server task Agent deployment:

Write permission for Groups & Computers where the deployment is executed

Use permission for Certificates with access to static group where certificates are contained

Use permission for Agent deployment in Server Tasks & Triggers section
