If you want to use Kaspersky Scan Engine together with the Kaspersky Scan Engine GUI, you must have PostgreSQL installed on a computer that is accessible from the computer on which you install Kaspersky Scan Engine. The Kaspersky Scan Engine GUI does not work without PostgreSQL.
Installing Kaspersky Scan Engine by using the installer
The procedure below describes the actions that must be performed if you want to install Kaspersky Scan Engine by using the installer.
To install Kaspersky Scan Engine automatically:
If you agree with the terms of the EULA, accept it. If you decline to accept the terms of the EULA, the installation will be canceled.
If you chose to add the product instance to an existing cluster, see the next step. Otherwise, go to step f.
In the current implementation, you can only add instances working in HTTP mode to the clusters of other instances working in HTTP mode, and instances working in ICAP mode to the clusters of other instances working in ICAP mode.
Under these credentials, Kaspersky Scan Engine will work with the database.
With these credentials, Kaspersky Scan Engine will create a new database called kavebase in which Kaspersky Scan Engine will store its data and a new PostgreSQL user. From this moment on, Kaspersky Scan Engine will use this user to make changes to the database.
The installer will create the account under which Kaspersky Scan Engine will work with the database. This account will have access only to the kavebase database.
These credentials will be stored as encrypted and available only for the root user. That is why if you run the service as a user without root privileges, an error message will be displayed. To solve this problem, after the installation is complete, configure access to the
kl_scanengine_db.key encryption key file stored in the
httpsrv directory so that the user account under which you want Kaspersky Scan Engine to work with the database can have the read permission.
The following modes are available:
For the ICAP mode, specify the port whose traffic Kaspersky Scan Engine will scan.
The installer will create the
scanengine subdirectory in this directory. Kaspersky Scan Engine will use this subdirectory for storing temporary files.
After you specify the necessary data, Kaspersky Scan Engine is installed, and then started. Finally, the installer prints the summary information about the installation to the console.
After you install Kaspersky Scan Engine, you can check the integrity of its components at any time by using the integrity check tool.Page top
