ESET PROTECT Server crash dumps



ESET PROTECT Server or ESET Management Agent run diagnostic tool


If you experience issues with your ESET PROTECT VA, you can Run diagnostic tool, see ESET PROTECT Webmin module for details.

If the Server or Agent are crashing and you cannot change the logging verbosity via Web Console, you can enable full trace logging by creating the empty file:

For Agent:

touch /var/log/eset/RemoteAdministrator/Agent/traceAll

For Server:

touch /var/log/eset/RemoteAdministrator/Server/traceAll



We recommend that you use Webmin File manager where you can easily search for files and download logs if necessary.

If you get the EPNS service servers are not accessible alert, see the troubleshooting steps.
