Mass deployment of ESET Management Agent on Linix

Recommended Posts

Good day,

We are looking at rolling out ESET onto a number of RHEL/CentOS servers. We use Protect Cloud to manage all our endpoints, clients and servers included.

Ideally, we would use Ansible to deploy the ESET Management Agent on each host and then use Protect Cloud to push out the ESET Server Security software.

The following page is in-line with this concept, only it is limited to installing ESET File Security: https://help.eset.com/efs/7/en-US/mass-deployment.html

The ESET Management Agent installer is a shell script and does not lend itself easily for automation. An RPM based install option would be  ideal here.


What are our options here? Are we missing something or is there any easy way to achieve the above. Thanks in advance.

There are technically only two possibilities for deployment of ESET Management Agent on Linux as of now:

  • [recommended]: Create script-based live installer (https://help.eset.com/protect_cloud/en-US/agent_live_installer.html) and run script on target device. Script is non-interactive and there are not even parameter required for it to download, configure and install ESET Management Agent.
  • Use stand-alone ESET Management Agent installer, which is also shell script, but this mechanisms requires parameters to be provided and thus not so easy for deployment.

In case you meant that live-installer script is not suitable for automation, could you possibly provide more details?
