Preparing for installation

Before launching installation, make sure that the hardware and software on the device meet the requirements for Administration Server and Administration Console.

Kaspersky Security Center stores its information in a SQL Server database. To do this, you have to install the SQL Server database on your own (learn more about how to select a DBMS). Other versions of SQL Server can also be used for storing data. They must be installed on the network before Kaspersky Security Center. Installation of Kaspersky Security Center requires administrator rights on the device on which the installation is performed.

Install Administration Server, Network Agent, and Administration Console in folders where case sensitivity is disabled. Also, case sensitivity must be disabled for the Administration Server shared folder and the Kaspersky Security Center hidden folder (%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\KasperskyLab\adminkit).

The server version of Network Agent is installed on the device together with Administration Server. Administration Server cannot be installed together with the regular version of Network Agent. If the server version of Network Agent is already installed on your device, remove it and start installation of Administration Server again.
