Issue

  • Network issues, such as DNS conflicts, require you to install a package locally on a client workstation instead of using a push installation

 

Solution

I. Create an installation package using ESET Remote Administrator the Installation Packages Editor

II. Export the installation package:

  1. Open the ESET Remote Administrator Console (ERAC) by clicking Start All Programs ESET ESET Remote Administrator Console.

  4. Type a name for the installer file into the File name field, select ESET Install Msi File With Configuration (*.msi) from the Type drop-down menu and then click Save.

  5. When prompted, click OK. The installer file will now be available in your selected save location. Proceed to part III.

III. Deploy the installation package locally on the target client workstation:

  1. Copy the .msi file that you exported in part II onto the client workstation on which you would like to install it.
     
  2. Double-click the file to execute the installation. We recommend that you perform a silent install with a suppressed restart (see the switch used in the example below) if you do not want to be prompted during the installation. For example: 

    "C:\Documents and Settings\eset\Desktop\eset_endpoint_security.msi" /qn REBOOT="ReallySuppress"

    NOTE: Additional Switches
     

    To suppress a reboot of the machine and display a progress bar that cannot be cancelled during the installation:
     

    • msiexec /i "C:\Documents and Settings\eset\Desktop\eset_endpoint_security.msi" /qb! REBOOT="ReallySuppress"

    If you exported an 'Exe' file instead of a 'Msi file, you can use the following syntax for a completely silent install:

    • "C:\Documents and Settings\eset\Desktop\eset_endpoint_security.exe" /quiet /norestart
