Ecmd must be run locally but I assume the path can point to a network share as long as the command is run in the account of a user who has read permissions to the share.

E.g:
ecmd /getcfg \\server\share\settings.xml

While I haven't tested it myself, I expect it to work as long as the user under which the command is run has at least read permissions to the share.

For security reasons I'd recommend protecting settings with a password and using the "advanced setup password" as the authorization method for ecmds.

Then you will be able to sign the config xml using xmlsigntool.exe as per the help. This will enable you to import the cfg xml via "ecmd.exe /setconfig config.xml" (must be run as an administrator).

I don't understand your use case and why you would like to import a particular configuration every time the computer starts. In order to enforce specific settings, we recommend deploying the ESET PROTECT agent which will apply desired policies.

Anyways, you could possibly use a logon script that will run ecmd.exe locally and import an already signed configuration file.

Dear macro,

I just would like to do the configuration when needed from my side without end user knowledge..but not Everytime the computer start up.

I'd recommend using ESET PROTECT and policies to do this.
