Installation in an Enterprise environment
When deploying programs in large networks, it is important to use a tool capable of performing remote program installations on each and every computer in the network.
Installing through Group Policy
In the Active Directory environment, this task can be elegantly solved by a Group Policy installation. Installation uses the MSI installer, which is distributed directly to all clients connecting to the domain via Group Policy.
To configure a domain controller to automatically install ESET Smart Security or ESET NOD32 Antivirus on each workstation after logging in, proceed as follows:
By following the steps above, the installer package will be installed on each computer that enters the domain. To install the package to computers which are currently up and running, those users should log out and log back in again.
If you wish to give users the ability to accept or deny the installation of the package, select Publish instead of Assigned in step 8. The next time the user logs in, the package will be added to Control Panel > Add or Remove programs > Add new program > Add programs from your network. The package will then be available to users for future installations from that location.
