Installing Kaspersky Security Center on the Kaspersky failover cluster nodes

Kaspersky Security Center is installed on both nodes of the Kaspersky failover cluster separately. First, you install the application on the active node, then on the passive one. When installing, you choose which node will be active and which will be passive.

Only a user from the KLAdmins domain group can install Kaspersky Security Center on every node.

To install Kaspersky Security Center on the active node of the Kaspersky failover cluster:

  1. Run the ksc_13.<build number>_full_<localization language>.exe executable file.

    A window opens and prompts you to select the Kaspersky applications to install. In the application selection window, click the Install Kaspersky Security Center 13.2 Administration Server link to start the Administration Server Setup Wizard. Follow the instructions of the Wizard.

  2. Please carefully read the License Agreement and Privacy Policy. If you agree with all the terms of the License Agreement and the Privacy Policy, select the following check boxes in the I confirm I have fully read, understood, and accept the following section:
    • The terms and conditions of this EULA
    • Privacy Policy describing the handling of data

    Installation of the application on your device will continue after you select both check boxes.

    If you do not accept the License Agreement or the Privacy Policy, cancel installation by clicking the Cancel button.

  3. Select Primary node to install the application on the active node.
  4. In the Shared folder window, do the following:
    • In the State share and Data share fields, specify the paths to the shared folders that you created on the file server during its preparation.
    • In the State share drive and Data share drive fields, select the network drives to which you mapped the shared folders during preparation of the nodes.
    • Select the cluster connectivity mode: via a virtual network adapter or a third-party load balancer.
  5. Perform other steps of custom installation, starting with step 3.

    In step 13, specify the IP address of a virtual network adapter if you have created an adapter when preparing the cluster nodes. Otherwise, enter the IP address of the third-party load balancer that you use.

Kaspersky Security Center is installed on the active node.

To install Kaspersky Security Center on the passive node of the Kaspersky failover cluster:
