Client workstations that are correctly connected to ERAS and displayed in ERAC can be configured and administered using various types of tasks.


The general workflow below applies for all tasks described in the following sub-chapters except the Interactive Task (see the chapter for an explanation of the workflow).


Stage I - New Task

 Tasks can be applied to multiple clients, or to one or more groups of clients.


1) To apply a task to one or more client workstations, select and right-click the workstations in the Clients pane.
2) Click New Task and select the type of task you wish to perform.
NOTE: Alternatively, the task wizard can be opened from the ERAC main menu by clicking Actions > New Task.


Stage II - Select one of the following tasks:

 Configuration Task

 On-demand Scan (Cleaning Disabled)

 On-demand Scan (Cleaning Enabled)

 Update Now

 SysInspector Script Task

 Restore/Delete From Quarantine Task

 Generate Security Audit Log

 Show Notification


3) After choosing the desired task you will have to perform the task-specific actions described in each of the chapters (see links above).


Stage III - Select Clients


4) You can modify your client selections in the Select Clients window, which will appear once you have set up the task. You can refine your client selection by adding clients from the All items client overview tree (left half of the window) to the Selected items list (right half of the window) or by removing the client entries that are already on the list.
NOTE: Click Add Special ... to open a new window in which you can add clients from the Clients pane or add clients by Server and/or Groups.



Stage IV - Task Report, Finish

5) The last dialog window, Task Report shows a preview of the configuration task. Enter a name or description for the task (optional). The Apply task after option can be used to set the task to run after a specified date/time. The Delete tasks automatically by cleanup if successfully completed option deletes all tasks which have been successfully delivered to target workstations.
6) Click Finish to register the task to run.


The following subchapters outline the individual types of tasks for client workstations, with an accompanying example scenario for each task type.
