Changing the Administration Server for client devices

You can change the Administration Server that manages client devices to a different Server using the Change Administration Server task.

To change the Administration Server that manages client devices to a different Server:

  1. Connect to the Administration Server that manages the devices.
  2. Create the Administration Server change task in one of the following ways:
    • If you need to change the Administration Server for devices included in the selected administration group, create a task for the selected group.
    • If you need to change the Administration Server for devices included in different administration groups or in none of the existing administration groups, create a task for specific devices.

    The New Task Wizard starts. Follow the instructions of the Wizard. In the Select the task type window of the New Task Wizard, select the Kaspersky Security Center node, open the Advanced folder, and select the Change Administration Server task.

  3. Run the created task.

After the task is complete, the client devices for which it was created are put under the management of the Administration Server specified in the task settings.

If the Administration Server supports encryption and data protection and you are creating a Change Administration Server task, a warning is displayed. The warning states that if any encrypted data is stored on devices, after the new Server begins managing the devices, users will be able to access only the encrypted data with which they previously worked. In other cases, no access to encrypted data is provided. For detailed descriptions of scenarios in which access to encrypted data is not provided, please refer to the Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows Online Help.
