kesl-supervisor won’t start after installation of Kaspersky Endpoint Security 11 for Linux on Astra Linux Common Edition
During the installation of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux on Astra Linux Common Edition and start of the initial setup script kesl-setup.pl, in some cases the kesl-supervisor service may not start and you may get the following notification:
Error: Job for kesl-supervisor.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status kesl-supervisor.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details. kesl not started
The system log will show a message of the following type:
Dec 14 10:06:30 exampleserver systemd: kesl-supervisor.service: Control process exited, code=exited status=255
The error occurs when using the installation package kesl-astra_11.2.0-4961_amd64.deb. It is intended for installation on Astra Linux Special Edition in the restricted application environment. When the application is installed from such installation package, the kesl-supervisor is started using the execaps utility, which is not included into Astra Linux Common Edition.
To install the application on Astra Linux Common Edition, use the installation package without the word “astra” in the name, for example:
- kesl_11.1.0-3013.cert_amd64.deb, if you need a certified build.
