Hello, No, this is not possible as of now. What problem you are trying to solve? Do you want to explicitly identify, which clients are used as a mirror server?

I am migrate from version 5 to 6. In version 5 we have many branch office ( 500+ ), every branch have one or two computer that connected to head office and assigned as mirror for local update 5 - 10 computer. The problem is when migration from era 5 to era 6, dynamic group, policies, and computers cannot migrated.

I am trying re-creating group or re-searching endpoint with mirror enabled, so i can monitor branch office update.

ps : don't suggest me to create apache http proxy, because internet access not allowed.

To me it's not clear what you mean by "I can set client custom for computers with mirror enabled or Update server".

In Endpoint v6, you can specify a custom path to mirrored update files. Mirror can be created using a command-line Mirror tool or using Endpoint v6 or a server v6 product (EMSX, EFSW, EMSL, ESHP).

However, by using an HTTP proxy you'd normally save a lot of data as only files that would be really needed by clients and have not been downloaded by any client yet would be downloaded. This is different to mirror which would always download all files with every update (more than 100 MB with each).

 

You wrote "Don't suggest me to create apache http proxy, because internet access not allowed." However, if there's a single computer with Internet connection in the network, you can install HTTP proxy on it and confine the proxy for access to ESET's servers only.

As I do understand correctly, this is related to "tagging" computers for rapid identification of the ones, that are serving as update mirrors.

Custom fields were removed, but for the next major (however not the upcoming 6.5 release) we are planning to introduce advanced tagging options, that will resolve this problem.

Maybe you don't believe, if i say there are no computers with internet connection directly except notebook for branch office manager. We can't use that notebook as HTTP Proxy, because they are not always in the office. Every computer connected head office via VPN through VSAT connection, only for specific port (internal application and 2222, 2221 for ESET communication). I know mirror download huge files, but its fine for us when i open ESET communication only at 00.00 AM and 17.00 PM.

 

Another reason i don't use HTTP Proxy because it must installed, if computer broken you must installed again (its mean i need new images os with additional apache http proxy installed). So for now mirror for endpoint for us was the best solutions. Just change policy to activated mirror from ERA, and its done.

Yup, you are correctly.

 

May i ask you, can ESET provide msi apache http proxy installer that can be configurable for silent install instead zip files ? i think is very helpful for deployment.

You can install standalone apache http proxy using the all-in-one installer. That should ease the installation process for you. We are also evaluating an option to provide fully manageable (installable / configurable) apache http proxy instance for the future releases of ERA (however, as I have stated above, not for the upcoming 6.5 release).
