Warning about upgrading[edit]

While adding upgrade stanzas to these packages has been seen to work, it's generally advisable to use ESET Remote Administrator Console when mass-upgrading NOD32, ESET Smart Security and ESET Endpoint Security. The reliability of remote upgrades is very good with the version 5 server and console.

Install from MSI[edit]

ESET provides MSI packages of its business-edition products, and the management console can produce MSIs customized with your site-specific configuration. This is more reliable than the EXE-based method because it doesn't need to communicate with the server to complete installation.

If you wish to customize the package (e.g. to point it at your management server), go to the Remote Install tab of ESET Remote Administrator Console, then choose Manage Packages from the Actions menu to build an installation package per the ESET Remote Administrator manual (see page 35). Once you've entered the desired configuration, use the "Save As..." buttons to export your package as an "ESET Install Msi File With Configuratoin" for 32- and 64-bit clients. You can then install this file with msiexec.

If you're not using ERAS, the MSI that ESET provides will work without customization.

Install with ESET Remote Administration Server remote-install[edit]

ESET's management console can produce an EXE which, when launched, silently downloads installation packages from the management server and installs them. This process can be more fragile than MSI-based installation.

Go to the Remote Install tab of ESET Remote Administrator Console, then choose Manage Packages from the Actions menu to build an installation package per the ESET Remote Administrator manual. Build your package to run with /qn REBOOT="ReallySuppress". Once you've entered the desired configuration, use the "Save As..." buttons to export your package as an "ESET Install Execute File" for 32- and 64-bit clients. You can then launch this file from WPKG.

If the Windows Firewall location on the client is set to "Public", the install will fail because the ESET Remote Administrator server is not able to reach the client.

To prevent communication being interrupted during the installation, use the configuration editor to set "Windows desktop 5/Personal firewall/Settings/Postpone Personal firewall module update until a computer restart" to Yes. This is a new feature in the version 5 desktop products.

When using the ERAC package editor, make sure entering and saving your update password is the very last thing you do before exporting, as otherwise it may not end up in the package.

A reboot is required when removing NOD32 or ESS, but a reboot is not normally required on installation.

The same install package works for version 4 and 5 products, but uninstall is different. Automated uninstall may not be possible with version 5 products without turning off self-defense.
