    Clients have a default 1 hour interval to look for updates. You can extend this interval by changing the scheduled task for checking for updates. The interval cannot be set to less than a hour. You can also enable tasks that will check for updates when a dial-up/vpn connection is established or a user logs on.

    Hello,

    Thanks for your answer. As i have 100 users on my network i want to know if i can change this parameter (interval to look for updates) from the ESET Remote Administrator console not from the client.

    Thanks for your help

    Hi!

    In the console you can pull in a configuration from one of your clients, edit it in the Configuration Editor (look under ESET Kernel\Setup\Scheduler/Planner), save the configuration in an XML file and then create a task in the console that pushes the new configuration out to all the clients you select.

    It's rather important to start with a configuration that you pull from one of the clients and not create your own because each scheduled task on the client has it's own ID and if you just start with an empty configuration creating your own schedules you will probably end up with duplicate tasks on the clients.
