Last Connected Dates vary over multiple months - sysinspector does not run on those devices


Recommended Posts


We are finding several endpoints that seem to no longer connect to the ESET Remote Administrator.  This has happened to different devices over several months.  We attempted to run Sysinspector, but it fails.  Could someone assist in identifying the possible issue?  Thank you.

Hello, do the machines have something in common? (operating system, device type, agent version ...).

Also, as you said "REMOTE ADMINISTRATOR", the first thing would be to upgrade your infrastructure to the latest version, as ERA 6.x is currently reaching EOL, and has been replaced in the meantime by versions 7.x and 8.x (released last December, under a new name ESET PROTECT). 

In order to check what is the problem, you will have to inspect the affected machines, about what could be the reason for them not connecting (any issue with the agent, corrupted local DB, or machine simply being shut down).

In case of client connection issues to the ERA/ESCM/EP server, the first thing to check is C:\ProgramData\ESET\RemoteAdministrator\Agent\EraAgentApplicationData\Logs\status.html and trace.log on troublesome clients.

As MichalJ advised, it is important that you upgrade the infrastructure to the latest ESET PROTECT. Basically you should:
- backup the db and export the CA and peer certificates
- if it's not a virtual appliance run the All-in-One installer to get all components upgraded
- after server upgrade send an ESET PROTECT components upgrade task to clients to upgrade agent to the latest version
- send a software install task to clients to upgrade Endpoint to the latest v8

Thank you all.  The machines include windows and mac.  Most of the issues are on the older version of eset, which we are upgrading.  However, a few of this issue are on the latest agent and connected to ESET Protect.  So we are running two versions.  Should I move all the devices to ESET Protect and then send the task to upgrade the agent?  I forgot to mention the group that is responsible for this said that we have to uninstall the old eset agent and reinstall the new eset agent. Thanks again!
