Updating Kaspersky databases and software modules on managed devices is an important task for maintaining protection of the devices against viruses and other threats. Administrators usually configure regular updates through usage of the Administration Server repository or repositories of distribution points.
When you need to update databases and software modules on a device (or a group of devices) that is not connected to the Administration Server (primary or secondary), a distribution point or the internet, you have to use alternative sources of updates, such as an FTP server or a local folder. In this case you have to deliver the files of the required updates by using a mass storage device, such as a flash drive or an external hard drive.
You can copy the required updates from:
To be sure the Administration Server repository contains the updates required for the security application installed on an offline device, at least one of the managed online devices must have the same security application installed. This application must be configured to receive the updates from the Administration Server repository through the Download updates to the Administration Server repository task.
Below is an example of configuring updates of databases and software modules by copying them from the Administration Server repository.
To update Kaspersky databases and software modules on offline devices:
By default, the updates are located at: \\<server name>\KLSHARE\Updates.
Alternatively, you can configure Kaspersky Security Center to regularly copy the updates to the folder that you select. For this purpose, use the Copy downloaded updates to additional folders option in the properties of the Download updates to the Administration Server repository task. If you specify a folder located on a flash drive or an external hard drive as a destination folder for this option, this mass storage device will always contain the latest version of the updates.
After the update task is complete, the Kaspersky databases and software modules are up-to-date on the device.
