Using Kaspersky Administration Kit 8.0, an administrator can configure automatic switching to an alternative update source for computers which occasionally loose connection to an Administration server. This function is carried out by Network agent. It switches Kaspersky Anti-Virus to an alternative update source after three failed attempts to connect to an Administration server (45 minutes by default). After a first successfully established connection between Network agent and Server, Kaspersky Anti-Virus will switch back to updating from the Administration server.
This function is configured in different ways for different Kaspersky Anti-Virus versions.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 for Windows Workstations / Windows Servers / SOS MP4 (versions 6.0.4.x)
When connection to Administration server is lost, Kaspersky Anti-Virus will use the alternative update source configured in a corresponding Update group task: tab Settings > button Configure in the section Update settings for mobile mode. By default when connection to Administration server is lost, Kaspersky Anti-Virus will attempt to access Internet to download databases from Kaspersky Lab servers.
Database updates will start Automatically.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 for Windows Workstations / Windows Servers / SOS MP2, MP3 (versions 6.0.2.*, 6.0.3.*)
These versions require an additional policy to be created to configure switching to another update source:
- Create a policy for a corresponding application in the administration group housing such semi-mobile computers. Select Mobile user policy type:
- Configure Kaspersky Anti-Virus settings to apply when losing connection to the Server in this policy. Specifically, define an update source which will be available to download updates from at connection loss. All these settings will be applied to Kaspersky Anti-Virus only if Network agent is unable to establish connection to an Administration server for 45 minutes.
