The article concerns the following versions of Kaspersky Security Center 10:

  • Service Pack 3 (version 10.5.1781.0)
  • Service Pack 2 Maintenance Release 1 (version 10.4.343)

To change an Administration Server:

  1. Open Kaspersky Security Center 10.
  2. Connect to the Administration Server with the managed devices.
  3. Go to Tasks and click Create a task. 
  4. Select Kaspersky Security Center 10 Administration Server →  Advanced → Change Administration server
  5. Specify the connection settings to the new Administration Server. You can specify an IP address, NetBIOS or DNS name of the device.
  6. Follow the steps of the wizard. 
  7. Run the created task or wait for the task to run automatically.

Once the task completes, the managed devices will be managed by the Administration server specified in the task settings.

If the Administration server supports the encryption and data protection functionalities, then you will see a warning. If devices store any encrypted data, then after change of the administration server users will only have access to the encrypted files they handled earlier. In other cases access to encrypted data will not be granted.
