The download updates to the repository task of the Administration Server is created automatically by the Kaspersky Security Center Quick Start Wizard. You can create only one download updates to the repository task. Therefore, you can create a download updates to the repository task only if this task was removed from the Administration Server tasks list.
To create a download updates to the repository task:
The New Task Wizard starts. Follow the instructions of the Wizard. In the Task type wizard window, select Download updates to the repository.
After the Wizard completes, the Download updates to the repository task will be created in the list of Administration Server tasks.
When Administration Server performs the Download updates to the repository task, updates to databases and software modules are downloaded from the updates source and stored in the shared folder. If you create this task for an administration group, it will only be applied to Network Agents included in the specified administration group.
Updates are distributed to client devices and slave Administration Servers from the shared folder.
The following resources can be used as a source of updates for the Administration Server:
To update Administration Server from an FTP / HTTP server or from a network folder, you must copy to those resources the correct structure of folders, containing updates, that matches the structure created when using Kaspersky Lab update servers.
Source selection depends on task settings. By default, updating is performed over the Internet from Kaspersky Lab update servers.
