Known issues:
  • The installation of Administration Server running Microsoft Windows Vista x64 or Microsoft Windows Server 2008 x64 may cause the Windows Installer to fail.
  • To resolve this issue, it is recommended that you install the latest system updates and Windows Installer 4.5.
  • The installation of Microsoft Server Express 2005 with Service Pack 3 running Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 2 may cause the operating system to fail. This issue is described in Microsoft KB921337. To resolve this issue, upgrade your operating system to Windows XP Service Pack 3.
  • Administration Server running Microsoft Windows Vista x64 / 2008 Server x64 under the domain account, which has no domain administrator's rights, may cause a failure in Administration Server installation using the remote computer shared folder admin$. To resolve this issue, switch the Administration Server account to the local account or use alternative installation methods.
  • Administration Console 8.0 does not display accounts information for tasks created in version 6.0. The tasks will continue to run under the account specified earlier by the administrator for version 6.0. To resolve this issue, modify the account settings used to run a task.

  • Administration Server running Microsoft Windows Vista x64 / 2008 Server x64 may cause functional errors in package installation using Active Directory.

Administration Server installation methods:

Critical Fix 1 is a cumulative update for Kaspersky Administration Kit 8.0. It can be used to either install Kaspersky Administration Kit 8.0 'from scratch' or to upgrade any previous versions of the application. Start Kaspersky Administration Kit 8.0 Critical Fix 1 installation on a computer installed with Administration Server and upgrade it. After installing Critical Fix 1, backward compatibility between the new and the old Administration Server version is supported. An upgrade does not eliminate any of the old Administration Server data.

Create a group or global deployment task for Network Agent version 8.0.2090. Start the task manually or on schedule. Successful termination of the task will upgrade the Network Agent version on client computers.

InformationWhen upgrading Kaspersky Administration Kit 8.0, you should create a backup copy of the Administration Server using the klbackup.exe utility or Administration Server data backup task. In order to completely restore Administration Server data, you will need to save the Server certificate.
