Concerning to:Kaspersky Anti-Virus 5.7 for Linux File Servers Kaspersky Anti-Virus 5.5 for Unix File Servers
A key file is your personal “key”. It keeps all Kaspersky Anti-Virus information, such as:
- Distributor's coordinates (the name of the firm and its contact information)
- Information about support (who and where provides it)
- The date of the key release
- The name and number of the license
- Components functionality table
- License validity
There are two kinds of key files:
Commercial key file activates Kaspersky Lab's program products purchased legally for their further usage. When purchasing the product pay attention to its validity period.
Commercial key file is valid during:
- 1 year
- 2 years
- Any period (during Kaspersky Lab special actions)
When the license expires, the product will function, but will not update the anti-virus databases. It will disinfect infected objects using old anti-virus databases. Updates downloaded using the keepup2date component or without it will not work. Thus Kaspersky Lab cannot guarantee you protection against new types of viruses.
Users of commercial key files have the right for full technical support provided by Kaspersky Lab: either by phone or via the HelpDesk form.
Trial key file is used to try Kaspersky Lab products during a fixed period of time. Trial keys are granted by Kaspersky Lab free.
Trial key file is valid during:
When the trial key expires, the product will not start.
The users of trial key files have the right for limited technical support provided by Kaspersky Lab by filling in the HelpDesk form only.
Once received, the key file should be saved on a separate drive (disc, flash, CD) to be restored when needed. The product will not start without a key file.
To know what key file is installed, run the command:
# /opt/kaspersky/kav4fs/bin/kav4fs-licensemanager -s
# /usr/local/bin/kav4fs-licensemanager -s
To add a new license key file, run the command:
# /opt/kaspersky/kav4fs/bin/kav4fs-licensemanager -a /path/to/000XXXXX.key
# /usr/local/bin/kav4fs-licensemanager -a /path/to/000XXXXX.key
Only two keys can be used concurrently: active is a key file used by the Anti-Virus at the present moment and a backup key which will be activated once the active key has expired or has been deleted.
The first key added is always installed as an active one.
