Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 1.1
is activated by adding a key file on all the Secure Virtual Machines (SVM).
Key file type should match the guest operating system of virtual machines:
- a server key file is intended for virtual machines with a server operating system,
- a desktop key file is intended for virtual machines with a desktop operating system.
If an SVM is used in a VMware virtual infrastructure to help protect virtual machines with both server and desktop operating systems, you have to install two keys on such machines: a server key file and a desktop key file.
Use the Install key file
task to install a key file. This task installs a key on all SVMs within a single Kaspersky Security Center
cluster, that is, on all SVMs installed on VMware ESXi hosts within a single VMware vCenter Server platform.
You can also add a secondary key file
, e.g. to extend the license when the primary key expiry period approaches.
You can add a secondary key file using a key installation task the same way as the primary one. Whenever the task detects an added key file, it adds the new key file as a secondary one.
