KB Solution ID: SOLN2757|Last Revised: December 12, 2014

A new version has been released

Version 6 of ESET Remote Administrator (ERA) and ESET business products were released in North America December 11th, 2014. This article applies to version 5.x and earlier ESET business products. For information about what's new in the latest version and how to upgrade, see the following articles:

  1. Open the ESET Remote Administrator Console (ERAC) by clicking Start All Programs ESET ESET Remote Administrator Console ESET Remote Administrator Console.
     
  2. Click Tools Server Options and click the Advanced tab.
     
  3. Click Edit Advanced Settings.
     
  4. Expand Remote Administrator ERA Server Settings Active Directory and verify that the settings entered for Active directory server, username and password are correct. If any of this information is incorrect, select the item and enter the correct information into the Value: field (to edit the Active directory password, select Active directory password, click Set Password, make your changes and click OK).

    NOTE:

    After you set the Active Directory (AD) password in ESET Remote Administrator 5.x and later, it is stored in a private .xml file for security reasons. As a result, you will see <Password is not set> next to Active directory password the next time you open ESET Configuration Editor even if this password has been previously set.
