Implementing ERA 6 in an existing environment with local ESET

Recommended Posts

In our testlab, we would like to see if it is possible to implement ERA into an existing environment with local ESET installations.

We have a couple of sites where ESET is installed locally in domain-joined desktops and laptops. But there is NO control about the status of the local installations.

Is it possible to implement an ERA server and migratie all local installations of ESET into ERA? We do not want to physically access the desktops, all has to be remotely.

Anyone done this before? What are the pitfalls? Is it possible?

If you have already Endpoint v6 installed, install or deploy ERA and then use it to deploy ERA agent remotely on those machines.

You can easily deploy ERA, using any of the provided options (as you have Domain, I would recommend a Windows installation, using the all-in-one installer). You can alternatively deploy ERA in Azure, if you prefer this option (so multiple sites, could easily connect to it over the internet).

Then, if you have all of the computers in the domain, the best option would be to install the ERA agent using the GPO / SCCM method, as described in our documentation here: http://help.eset.com/era_admin/65/en-US/index.html?fs_agent_deploy_gpo_sccm.htm

If you use Endpoint V5, or V6 (it should work even for V4.2), agent will automatically overtake the control of the Endpoint, and connect it to the server. If your endpoints are already configured as they should be, just make sure, that when installing ERA Server, you do not select the option to install "apache http proxy", as that would force all endpoints to communicate with ESET using proxy server installed on the machine where the ERA server is, which does not work in multi-site environment (usually). 

Ideally, you can always consult with your local ESET support, which should be able to recommend you the best possible approach, taking into account your network environment, and products used.
