[KB2204] How do I push out .xml configurations to client computers on the network? (5.x)


End of support for version 5.2 and 5.3 of ESET Remote Administrator

This article applies to version 5.x of Remote Administrator. ESET Remote Administrator version 5.3 is currently in Basic support status and expected to reach End of Life status in June 2020.

ESET Remote Administrator version 5.2 is currently in End of Life status and no longer available for download.

When you edit or create a configuration .xml file in the ESET Configuration Editor, you still need to implement those changes on the client computers on the network. Use the following steps to apply the updated .xml configuration:

  1. Open the ESET Remote Administrator Console (ERAC) by clicking Start → All Programs → ESET → ESET Remote Administrator Console → ESET Remote Administrator Console.
  2. In the Clients tab, select the clients for which you would like to edit configuration settings (hold CTRL + click to select multiple clients). Right-click the selected clients and select New Task  Configuration Task from the context menu.
