This section describes the migration of the managed devices and related objects (such as policies, tasks, reports) from Kaspersky Security Center Web Console running on-premises to Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console. You can include a single administration group in the migration scope to restore the same administration group in Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console.
This group must contain the managed devices of a single operating system. If your network includes the devices of different operating systems or Linux distributives, allocate them in different administration groups, and then migrate each group separately.
After you finish the migration, all Network Agents within the migration scope are upgraded and managed by Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console.
The steps listed in this section cover the migration process performed when no hierarchy of Administration Servers exists, that is, no connection has been established between Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console and Kaspersky Security Center Web Console running on-premises.
Before you start, do the following:
If the password has already been set, do one of the following in Kaspersky Security Center Web Console:
If the Windows device still stores any files or folders encrypted through Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows, the Network Agent upgrade will be canceled during the migration process. A notification will prompt you to decrypt all data on the device and disable the encryption feature.
Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console allows for a maximum of 25,000 managed devices per one Administration Server.
Migration to Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console comprises the following stages:
Estimate the scope of the migration process, that is, review the administration group to export and assess the number of managed devices in it. Also, make sure that all the activities listed as migration prerequisites have been completed successfully.
Use the Migration wizard of Kaspersky Security Center Web Console running on-premises to export your managed devices together with their objects.
The maximum export file size is 4 GB.
Transfer the information about your managed devices and objects to Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console. For this purpose, use the Migration wizard of Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console to import the export file and create a Network Agent stand-alone installation package.
Go back to the Migration wizard in Kaspersky Security Center Web Console running on-premises to create a remote installation task. You will be able to use this task (immediately or later) to re-install Network Agent on your managed devices and complete the migration process.
Upon finishing with the migration, you can make sure that it was successful:
