Installation of Kaspersky Anti-Virus 8.0 for Storage
consists in installing the following components:
antivirus application – should be installed directly on the server it is going to protect;
Anti-Virus administration console (MMC) – can be installed either on the protected server or on a remote host;
plug-in for managing Anti-Virus via Kaspersky Administration Kit – should be installed on each host with Administration console used to manage Anti-Virus.
There exist several methods of installing these three components: locally, from command line prompt, via Active Directory policies, using Kaspersky Administration Kit remote installation tasks. The table below contains possible installation variants with recommendations.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus installation files are stored in two folders: x86\ and x64\. The folder x86\ contains installation files for servers running a 32-bit MS Windows; the folder x64\ contains installation files for servers running a 64-bit MS Windows.
You can also use the file \setup.exe
to install the application locally. In this case you will get prompted to select components to install, open Anti-Virus setup guide, Anti-Virus web page, Technical support service web site. Examples:
