Almost all described methods are completely or partially automated in Kaspersky Administration Kit. The administrator can use them right from Kaspersky Administration Console. Kaspersky Administration Kit automatically scans the network and prompts the administrator to select the computers for instillation.
Initially, all detected computers are unassigned. The administrator selects the computers to be Managed—those to be connected to the management system and protected by anti-virus. A managed computer is not automatically connected. Connection presupposes agent installation, which can be done later.
Managed computers are associated in groups to which policies and tasks are applied. Policies and tasks are not applied to unassigned computers; the only exclusion is the remote installation task.
The computer where Administration Server is installed is always manageable. Moreover, it is always connected.
