Scenario: Upgrading Kaspersky Security Center and managed applications

This section describes the main brief scenario for Kaspersky Security Center upgrade.

The Kaspersky Security Center deployment scenario proceeds in stages:

  1. Planning the resources

    Make sure that you have enough disk space to create the backup of the Administration Server data.

  2. Getting the installer file for Kaspersky Security Center

    Get the executable file for the current version of Kaspersky Security Center and save it on the device that will work as the Administration Server. Read the Release Notes of the current version of Kaspersky Security Center.

  3. Creating a backup copy of the previous version

    Use the data backup and recovery utility to create a backup copy of the Administration Server data.

  4. Running the installer

    Run the executable file for version 12. When running the file, specify that you have a backup copy and specify its location. Your data will be restored from the backup.

  5. Upgrading the managed applications

    You can upgrade the application if there is a newer version available. Make sure that the version of Kaspersky Security Center is compatible with this application. Then perform the upgrade of the application as described in its Release Notes.
