Applies to Kaspersky Administration Kit 8.0
Kaspersky Administration Kit allows an administrator to organize networked Administration servers into a hierarchy.
Administration servers are united into a master server – slave server hierarchy. Each Administration server can have more than one slave server within a hierarchy.
The feature of joining Servers into a hierarchy allows an administrator:
- to limit Administration server load (compared with installation of a single Server within a network). Each client PC connects to the Administration server it is assigned to.
- to simplify coordination with remote offices – there is no need to maintain connection between the master Administration server and each client PC (which may be located in other regions). It is enough to install slave Administration servers within each network segment, connect remote PCs to such local Servers, and then connect slave Administration servers to the Master Administration server.
- to distribute logical networking privileges among several administrators.
An organized hierarchy allows slave Servers to update antivirus database storages and get policies and group tasks from master Server. Modification of the Policies and tasks received from Master server is restricted (locked) on Slave servers.
Slave Servers do not inherit Kaspersky Administration Kit tasks and Computer selection tasks from Master server.
