Forced synchronization

Although Kaspersky Security Center automatically synchronizes the status, settings, tasks, and policies for managed devices, in some cases the administrator must know for certain, at a given moment, whether synchronization has already been performed for a specified device.

Synchronizing a single device

To force synchronization between the Administration Server and a managed device:

  1. Go to DEVICES → MANAGED DEVICES.
  2. Click the name of the device that you want to synchronize with the Administration Server.

    A property window opens with the General section selected.

  3. Click the Force synchronization button.

The application synchronizes the selected device with the Administration Server.

Synchronizing multiple devices

This feature is applicable only to Kaspersky Security Center 12.1 or a later version.

To force synchronization between the Administration Server and multiple managed devices:

  1. Open the device list of an administration group or a device selection:
    • Go to DEVICES → MANAGED DEVICES → Groups, and then select the administration group that contains devices to synchronize.
    • Run a device selection to view the device list.
  2. Select the check boxes next to the devices that you want to synchronize with the Administration Server.
  3. Click the Force synchronization button.

    The application synchronizes the selected devices with the Administration Server.

  4. In the device list, check that the time of last connection to the Administration Server has changed, for the selected devices, to the current time. If the time has not changed, update the page content by clicking the Refresh button.

The selected devices are synchronized with the Administration Server.

Viewing the time of a policy delivery

After changing a policy for a Kaspersky application on the Administration Server, the administrator can check whether the changed policy has been delivered to a specific managed device. A policy can be delivered during a regular synchronization or a forced synchronization.

To view the date and time that an application policy was delivered to a managed device:

  1. Go to DEVICES → MANAGED DEVICES.
  2. Click the name of the device that you want to synchronize with the Administration Server.

    A property window opens with the General section selected.

  3. Click the Applications tab.
  4. Select the application for which you want to view the policy synchronization date.

    The application policy window opens with the General section selected and the policy delivery date and time displayed.
