Changing server address/port on existing Eset Agent

Recommended Posts

On a remote site with quite a few computers there are already Eset Management Agents installed which pointed to a local ERA Server.

Since the local ERA Server does not exist anymore I tried re-deploying an AIO Installer using the Eset remote deployment tool.

The remote deployment finished without errors/warnings but the clients do not arrive in my MSP console. Upon checking this on one of the clients on site I noticed the existing Agent still has the old server and port in its configuration.

Is there a way to change these values for the existing agent?
I can't drive hours to make a little change on every PC.

Since endpoints are no longer reporting to ESET PROTECT, you must re-deploy the agent using correct server settings and peer and CA certificates. Do you mean that you created a new agent installer PROTECTAgentInstaller.bat with current server settings and certificates and ran it on the machines but it didn't make any difference?

No, I created an all-in-one installer (security product, agent, certificate, server address, port).

The software has been updated but the agents still tries to connect to the non-existing local ESET PROTECT instead of our MSP console.

The correct server and port are configured in the all-in-one installer. Seems like the existing agent on the remote PCs was updated but the server address and port were not overwritten.

If you have Endpoint already installed, you just need to re-deploy agent. Try running PROTECTAgentInstaller.bat on one machine, it should update agent settings. If the AiO installer doesn't update agent settings as you say, please raise a support ticket for further investigation.
