  1. Hi folks, I've got a few machines that were joined to the domain and then ESET was installed, but subsequently their computer names have been changed. They are still showing in ESMC with the old name. How do I get ESET to update this? Thanks
  2. Thanks. Where do I find the "deactivate seats" setting? Can't spot it in server settings.
  3. I've double checked and no PCs are muted. The offset always seems to be two, as the number of PCs with alerts has increased to 5, but EMSC now shows "7" on the left. I'll log a support ticket.
  4. Yes, subgroups is ticked, and no filters are set.
  5. Thanks. Yes, definitely deactivating as well. I had to reboot the server for Windows Updates, and subsequent to that the numbers have updated. What's odd though is that the number of computers listed is around 10 less than the number of licenses used. Should these not be equal, or the number of licenses lower if some PCs are not managed?
  6. Hi folks, Our license usage in ESMC is showing as slightly over, so I have done some tidying up and removed some ex-PCs (ensured no policy was applying, used "Stop Managing", and "Remove Device"). I have verified they are no longer in the Computers listing. Our license count is still exactly the same though. Does it takes some minutes/hours for the license count to catch up? Thanks
  7. So the dashboard also shows 6 as "security risks". if I click the panel it takes me to the computer list for machines with "Alert" status which is back to 4 machines again. Any ideas?
  8. Yes, from Feb and Jan. The filter had been set to a time range, so I've removed that and see threats going back for many months. These are all previous though and have been resolved. I suspect there must have been a filter on the group to hide resolved threats, which I may have removed. If I add back a "threat resolved" filter then the "Computers with active threats" group is now empty.
  9. Thanks. So a mix of things, mostly unsafe applications e.g. Win32/Bundled.Toolbar.Google.D, but in some of these cases at least the threat has been "cleaned by deletion" and everything in this list is marked as resolved. I'm not sure why all these items are still showing in "active threats".
  10. I had a look at all the machines with threats, and they were all false positives due to what it thought were problem applications in a driver install package. So I've marked them as resolved. I've gone back to the "Computers with active threats" group and looked through all the machines via their details. Not sure what you mean by "Cause column in the Threat panel", how do I get to that? All I can see in details, under Threats and Quarantine, is that some but not all PCs have a quarantined item. None of them have active alerts. Is the quarantined item classified as an active threat?
  11. For example the number in the main menu is still "6" - same as it was yesterday - yet still only 4 computers show with alerts. Am I right in thinking that this number *is* for computers with alerts? Just in case I'm comparing it with the wrong thing.
  12. Hi folks, In ESMC the Computers icon on the left appears with a red number, which I'm assuming shows the number of machines that have an error. When I filter the computers with errors the number never matches the list, which leads me to one of two conclusions: 1. The number on the left is wrong. 2. This number relates to something else. I have asked ESET support about this, and they said it's a known bug. But the previous ESET Remote Administrator did exactly the same thing, so I just want to check with other users whether this sounds correct? If so, I can't believe th
  13. Hi folks, I received a "Malware Outbreak Alert" email, which is triggered when > 5% of machines have an active threat. I checked the "Computers with active threats" dynamic group, and it has 5.5% of our total PCs there, so it must have just tipped over, rather than being an actual mass outbreak. I have rung ESET support, but got a somewhat wishy-washy response about what to do, which was essentially taken from what I was going to do anyway, listed below. The steps I thought to follow were as below: 1. Open the ESMC console 2. Go to Computers > Computers with a

    It hadn't been clear to me in the guide that I should have changed the server type to what would have likely installed by default, which then just uses Windows auth. That worked.

    I can't install ESMC as it's asking for a database administrator username and password, which I have no record of. The admin username and password don't work. Not sure if the issue is this, or the connection credentials, but have logged a support ticket.
