Dear all

 

I just want to know that if we perform agent deploy task on client system then it require internet on client system or not

 

Yes, both deployment using "Remote deployment task" and using "Live installer" will attempt to download installation packages from ESET repositories through HTTP proxy (if configured so).

But if there is any other way to install client without internet connection. or Live installer will attempt to download installation packages from local server.

Live installer (for Windows) is technically a bat/vbscript script which downloads and runs installer with "bundled" parameters -> you may freely modify it to fit your needs (basic parameters as package URL or ERA connection parameters should be easily modifiable). Also there were multiple topics on this forum discussing specific scenarios.

Agent Installer is a batch file, You need to *somehow* get that batch file onto the client machine. If you want the agent insatller to download from a file share then you need to edit the file. For example:

 

change:

 

set url=hxxp://repository.eset.com/v1/com/eset/apps/business/era/agent/v6/6.3.136.0/Agent_x64.msi
if defined IsArch_x86 (
  set url=hxxp://repository.eset.com/v1/com/eset/apps/business/era/agent/v6/6.3.136.0/Agent_x86.msi
)

 

to

 

set url="C:\Temp\Agent_x64.msi"
if defined IsArch_x86 (
  set url="C:\Temp\Agent_x86.msi"
)

 

 

and change

 

echo.On Error Resume Next
echo.packageLocation = DownloadUsingHTTPProxy^("!url!", "!http_proxy_hostname!", "!http_proxy_port!", "!http_proxy_username!", "!http_proxy_password!"^)
echo.If packageLocation = "" Then
echo.    packageLocation = DownloadUsingHTTPProxy^("!url!", "", "", "", ""^)
echo.End If
echo.On Error GoTo 0
 

 

to

 

echo.On Error Resume Next
echo.packageLocation = !url!
echo.On Error GoTo 0

 

 

(there's probably other ways to achieve the same result).

No. it will download from ESET. UNLESS you change the batch file as I indicated. And yes, this is for deploying the agent but NOT the "agent deploy task" since that's active directory based.

Unfortunately remote deployment task will be downloading installer from ESET repositories and there is currently no way how to change it, especially in case Windows->Windows deployment is performed. Only options is using HTTP proxy - remote installed will use proxy parameters set in SERVER's configuration during task execution.

It will be downloaded on each client separately (= it is so called "pull" remote installation). In case HTTP proxy is properly configured and visible/accessible by client computers, installer file should be cached during first download and re-used for all others.

Maybe to ask another question, is there any specific use-case, where this scenario (caching of agent installers on Apache HTTP Proxy (or any proxy with enabled caching) is not optimal for your organization?
