Solution

Before you proceed

ESET Security for Microsoft SharePoint Server must be installed manually on each Web Server in your SharePoint farm, and cannot be installed remotely using ESET PROTECT or ESET Security Management Center.

Before you begin the installation process, make sure that you have the following items available:

  • Your ESET-issued product license file (emailed to you following your purchase of SET Security for Microsoft SharePoint Server)
  • The Administrator username and password used to access your Microsoft SharePoint Sites

Ensure that your SharePoint administrator account has the following:

  • SharePoint Farm Administrators privileges
  • Access to website collections
  • 'Log on as service' privileges
  • Your SharePoint account is a member of the SQL SysAdmin role on the database server (if SharePoint is configured to connect to the database using Windows authentication)

For more information on configuring a SharePoint administrator account, see Microsoft's Knowledgebase article.
