ERA Update Subserver

Hello,

 

in my company we've got a lot of locations and currently all the client geht their Updates from our ERA Server, where the traffic goes over our VPN Tunnel. So in order to reduce the traffic I would like to install subservers in each location, where the server downloads the updates from our server or the ESET server and then deploys them onto the clients.

 

How can I do this the best way?

 

Thanks

Hello See182,

 

What version of ESET Remote Administrator are you using? If you're using ERA5 you could technically set up a 'subserver' (with update mirror) on each site and set up upper server replication so that child ERA servers report information to the "Upper Server". This is described in this KB article: hxxp://support.eset.com/kb950

Though, I would recommend going to the HTTP Proxy route. You could easily install an HTTP Proxy server on each site (I like Apache HTTP Proxy) and have clients on each site configured to update through the caching http proxy. Method 2 of this KB describes how to manually install: hxxp://support.eset.com/kb5950

If going the proxy route, you'll need to change your "update server" address back to the default 'Autoselect' for ESET servers. Then configure your http proxy settings in the 'Tools > Proxy Server' section.

***If you're already using ERA6 you should use the the proxy option, as ERA6 does not include an update mirror directly on the server component.

 

Best,

Rook

Yes, for ERA6 I recommend using the HTTP proxy. Put one on each site, and modify your policies in ERA so that clients on site1 go to proxy on site1. Site2 --> site2 proxy. Etc..

Apache HTTP Proxy (or Squid) can be installed on either Windows or Linux. You can refer to this article for instructions on installing HTTP Proxy on Windows: hxxp://support.eset.com/kb5950
And you can refer to this help guide for Linux: hxxp://help.eset.com/era_install/64/en-US/http_proxy_installation_linux.htm

Well I will try to create a Linux machine as a proxy, I think that would make more sense than setting up a Windows Server just to share the ESET updates. Thanka for your help Rook ;)
