NOTE: Some values are for informational purposes only and may not be current when the administrator views them at the Console. For example, at 7 a.m. there may have been an update error, but at 8 a.m. it was performed successfully. These values may include Last Threat Alert and Last Event Warning. If the administrator knows this information is obsolete, it can be cleared by right-clicking and selecting Clear Info > Clear “Last Threat Alert” Info or Clear “Last Event Warning” Info . Information about the last virus incident or last system event will be deleted.

The Clients tab offers several options after double-clicking on a client:

 

· General

Contains similar information to that displayed in the Clients tab. Here you can specify the Client Name – the name under which this client is visible in ERA, plus an optional comment.

 

· Member Of Groups

This tab lists all groups to which the client belongs. For more information, see chapter Information filtering.

 

· Tasks

Tasks related to the given client. For more information see chapter Tasks.

 

· Configuration

This tab allows you to view or export the current client configuration to an.xml file. Later in this manual, we will explain how .xml files can be used to create a configuration template for new/modified.xml configuration files. For more information see chapter Tasks.

 

· Protection Status

This is a general status statement regarding all ESET programs. Some of the statements are interactive and allow immediate intervention. This functionality is useful in that it prevents the need to manually define a new task to solve a given protection problem.

 

· Protection Features

Component status for all ESET security features (Antispam, Personal firewall, etc.)

 

· System Information

Detailed information about the installed program, its program component version, etc.

 

· SysInspector

Detailed information about startup processes and processes running in the background.

 

· Quarantine

Contains a list of quarantined files. Quarantined files can be requested from a client and saved to a local disk.
