Deploying the Guest Introspection service

For proper functioning of Kaspersky Security in an infrastructure managed by a VMware vCenter Server and VMware NSX Manager, you must deploy the Guest Introspection service on each VMware cluster whose virtual machines you want to protect.

After deploying the Guest Introspection service on a VMware cluster, the Guest Introspection service virtual machines are deployed on each hypervisor that is part of the cluster.

Deployment of the Guest Introspection service is performed in the VMware vSphere Web Client console.

To deploy the Guest Introspection service:

  1. In the VMware vSphere Web Client console, start the Deployment Wizard for network services and protection services for virtual machines (the Networking & Security / Installation section on the Service Deployments tab).
  2. Use the Wizard to specify the following settings for deploying the Guest Introspection service:
    1. Select the Guest Introspection service in the table.
    2. Select one or multiple VMware clusters on which you want to install Kaspersky Security.
    3. If required, change the default settings for all Guest Introspection service virtual machines that will be deployed on hypervisors within the selected VMware cluster:
      • Network that will be used by the service virtual machines.
      • Storage for deployment of service virtual machines.
      • Method of assigning IP addresses. By default, service virtual machines receive network settings via the DHCP protocol. You can configure a static pool of IP addresses that will be used for assigning IP addresses to service virtual machines.
  3. Finish the Wizard and wait for deployment of the Guest Introspection service to complete.

    A Guest Introspection service virtual machine will be deployed on each hypervisor within the VMware cluster that you selected.
