Custom remote install
It is not a requirement to use ERA tools to remotely install ESET client solutions. In the end, the most important aspect is to deliver and execute the einstaller.exe file on client workstations.
For einstaller.exe to launch, the user currently logged in does not necessarily have to be an administrator. The agent adopts the required administrator username/password/domain from ERAS. For more information, see the end of this chapter.
The einstaller.exe file can be
obtained as follows:
NOTE: The Direct installation with predefined XML configuration method can be used in situations where it is possible to provide administrator rights for the installation. The .msi package is launched using the /qn parameter (version s 4.x, 3.x) or the /silentmode parameter (version 2.x). These parameters will run the installation without displaying a user interface.
The username and password of the account under which the installation of the package is to be performed must be an account with administrator rights or, preferably, a domain administrator account.
During the remote installation process, backward connection to ERAS takes place and the agent (einstaller.exe) adopts settings from the Set Default Logon for E-mail and Logon Script Installations option.
If the einstaller.exe agent is started manually on a target workstation, the remote installation is handled in the following way:
The installation of the package is launched, applying the associated .xml parameters under the account defined in ERAS (the Set Default Logon for E-mail and Logon Script Installations option).
