If you are experiencing issues with ESET products running on Linux machines, ESET Technical Support may ask you to run the info_get.command and send them the logs to further troubleshoot your issue.

To run this command, follow the steps below:

ESET Endpoint Antivirus for Linux and ESET Server Security for Linux users

If ESET Technical Support requests logs from ESET Endpoint Antivirus for Linux (version 7 and later) or ESET Server Security for Linux (version 7 and later), use the collect_logs.sh script to generate the logs.

Follow the procedure for ESET Endpoint Antivirus for Linux or ESET Server Security for Linux.

  1. Use an application (for example, Putty) to Secure Shell (SSH) into the affected machine and log in as root.

  2. Use the following command to download ESET Log Collector:

    wget https://help.eset.com/eset_tools/info_get.command.zip
