Agent Installer - macOS

This wizard will help you create .sh script for ESET Management Agent deployment  on macOS computers.

Follow the steps below to create an Agent live installer script for macOS:

1.Fill in the Name and Description of the installer.

2.Click Select tags to assign tags.

3.Parent group (optional) - Select the Parent group where the computer will be placed after installation. You can select an existing static group or create a new static group to which the device will be assigned after the installer is deployed.

4.Initial installer configuration (Optional) - Use this option to apply configuration policy to ESET Management Agent. Click Select under Agent configuration (optional) and choose from the list of available policies. If none of the pre-defined policies are suitable, you can create a new policy or customize the existing ones.

5.Select the check box I accept the terms of the application End User License Agreement and acknowledge the Privacy Policy. See End User License Agreement (EULA), Terms of Use and Privacy Policy for ESET products for more information.

6.If you use an HTTP Proxy, select the check box Enable HTTP Proxy settings and specify the Proxy settings (Host, Port, Username and Password) to set ESET Management Agent connection to Proxy to enable communication forwarding between ESET Management Agent and ESET PROTECT Cloud Server. The Host field is the address of the machine where the HTTP Proxy is running. HTTP Proxy uses the port 3128 by default. You can set a different port if needed. Make sure to set the same port also in the HTTP Proxy configuration.


The communication protocol between Agent and ESET PROTECT Cloud Server does not support authentication. Any proxy solution used for forwarding Agent communication to ESET PROTECT Cloud Server that requires authentication will not work.

Enable Use direct connection if HTTP proxy is not available if you want to allow this fallback option.

7.Select Save & Download to save the configuration and download the installation script or Save and close to save the configuration for later.


ESET Management Agent from version – Windows: 7.2.1266.0, Linux: 7.2.2233.0, macOS: 7.2.3261.0 – and later, supports auto-upgrade functionality.

ESET Management Agent auto-upgrade is triggered two weeks after the newer version of ESET Management Agent is released into the repository if the upgrade was not initiated by the Administrator. The auto-upgrade is designed to assure that the upgrade process is phased and distributed during a longer period to prevent an increased impact on the network and managed workstations.

8.Run the installation package file on a client computer. It will install the ESET Management Agent and the ESET security product on the device and connect the device to ESET PROTECT Cloud. For step-by-step instructions, see the setup wizard.
