This section provides information about the Administration Server quick start wizard.
Administration Server quick start wizard allows you to create a minimum of necessary tasks and policies, adjust a minimum of settings, download and install plug-ins for managed Kaspersky applications, and create installation packages of managed Kaspersky applications. When the wizard is running, you can make the following changes to the application:
Download and install plug-ins for managed applications. After the quick start wizard has finished, the list of installed management plug-ins is displayed in the Advanced → Details of application management plug-ins installed section of the Administration Server properties window.
Create installation packages of managed Kaspersky applications. After the quick start wizard has finished, installation packages of Network Agent for Windows and managed Kaspersky applications are displayed in the Administration Server → Advanced → Remote installation → Installation packages list.
Add key files or enter activation codes that can be automatically distributed to devices within administration groups. After the quick start wizard has finished, information about license keys is displayed in the Administration Server → Kaspersky Licenses list and in the License keys section of the Administration Server properties window.
Configure interaction with Kaspersky Security Network (KSN).
An infrastructure of cloud services that provides access to the Kaspersky database with constantly updated information about the reputation of files, web resources, and software. Kaspersky Security Network ensures faster responses by Kaspersky applications to threats, improves the performance of some protection components, and reduces the likelihood of false positives.
Set up email delivery of notifications of events that occur during operation of Administration Server and managed applications (successful notification delivery requires that the Messenger service run on the Administration Server and all recipient devices). After the quick start wizard has finished, the email notifications settings are displayed in the Notification section of the Administration Server properties window.
Adjust the update settings and vulnerability fix settings for applications installed on devices.
Create a protection policy for workstations and servers, as well as malware scan tasks, update download tasks, and data backup tasks, for the top level of the hierarchy of managed devices. After the quick start wizard has finished, the created tasks are displayed in the Administration Server → Tasks list, the policies corresponding to the plug-ins for managed applications are displayed in the Administration Server → Policies list.
The quick start wizard creates policies for managed applications, such as Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows, unless such policies are already created for the Managed devices group. The quick start wizard creates tasks if tasks with the same names do not exist for the Managed devices group.
In Administration Console, Kaspersky Security Center automatically prompts you to run the quick start wizard after you have started it for the first time. You can also start the quick start wizard manually at any time.
