You have an ERA 6.x environment running with ERA Proxy (on a Virtual Appliance) component and you want upgrade to ESET Security Management Center (ESMC) 7, which does not support ERA Proxy. You can replace your appliance with a new one and enable Apache HTTP Proxy to substitute the role of ERA Proxy in the infrastructure. The transition must follow strict rules described in this article.
ESMC 7 introduces a new generation of the Agent - Server communication protocol. The new replication protocol uses TLS and HTTP2 protocols so it can go through Proxy servers. There are also new self-recovery features and a persistent connection which improves overall communication performance.
ESET provides pre-configured Apache installer. The user can also use other proxy solution (besides Apache HTTP Proxy) which fulfills the following conditions:
•can forward SSL communication
•supports HTTP CONNECT
• can work without authentication (ESET Management Agent does not support authentication with proxy)
However, the configuration of other proxy solutions is not provided or supported by ESET. Other than Apache proxy solutions may not support caching of the ESET Dynamic Threat Defense communication.
Replace the hostname and password values with actual values from your main ESMC Server. Read more Agent installation.
