Cluster Mode Installation

The Advanced installation scenario also allows you to activate the Cluster Mode Installation. If the Cluster Mode Installation is enabled you will need to specify the path to a cluster shared data folder that is fully accessible for all cluster nodes (i.e. all nodes must have read/write permissions for this folder). It can either be a quorum disk or a UNC shared folder. If a shared folder is used, you must enable sharing for Computers in the shared folder's properties. The cluster node name must then be added to Share Permissions with full rights.

It is necessary to install ERA Server individually on all cluster nodes. If anything other than the built-in MS Access database is used, it is important to make sure that all ERA Server nodes connect to the same database. In the next steps it is also important to set the name of the cluster node where ERA is to be installed as the server name.


Important: It is necessary to configure the ESET Remote Administrator Server service (ERA_SERVER) as the cluster's Generic Service in the Cluster Administrator console.


If you plan to uninstall ERA Server, you must disable the cluster node before uninstalling.
