Security product configuration - Select Multiples


Recommended Posts

Sorry basic question here. When im creating an installer it only lets me select one configuration option.

Surely you need to be able to create multiple here so you can enable device control, antivirus and dynamic threat defence all at the same time ?

Thanks thanks thanks.

Hello @endpointandcats

You do not have to select the configuration during the installer creation. You can simply assign all of the relevant "policy templates" (or custom made policies) to group all (or any group or even an individual computer), which means that the resulting configuration would be created as a merge of those policies. 

Alternatively, you can create your own custom template, where you configure the product as you want, and then you choose this template during the installer creation process. 

Please note, that there is a difference between a configuration and policy. Configuration sets the values to the desired state, but does not lock them on the client (if the local user has admin rights, he can change the settings). Policy on the other hand, if setting has "apply/force" flags set, would lock the setting, and prevent it from being edited. 

Hope that this helps.

Hello, I follow you now and i have made a policy which is all the options that i want to have enabled which is cool !

The only thing is i have to enable EDTD on each machine manually, the policy doesnt seem to do this which is odd ?

What do you mean that EDTD needs to be enabled manually? EDTD enablement consists of two things: 

  1. Policy setup - you can create a policy for EDTD and assign it to a group all. It will enable it on all devices. 
  2. Activation task - you can target it as well to all of the computers. 

Also, you can do it this way: 

  1. Select your computers
  2. In the footer click "actions" and choose "activate EDTD"

NOTE: If you mean, that the "computer details" screen does show you option to "enable EDTD" even when EDTD is enabled - this is a bit of a design glitch, that will be addressed in the future versions.

Also it is possible that the design glitch is confusing me as that is where i first say that it was 'not enabled' for a clinet.

You can enable EDTD for all computers in a group by selecting the computers and selecting Enable EDTD from the menu:

What might have confused you is the "Enable EDTD" button-like object in computer details which is actually not a button and it doesn't change its state even if EDTD is already enabled. This is subject to change in future versions of ESET PROTECT.
