Step 2. Selecting the type of installation on a cluster
Dec 4, 2023
Select the type of installation on the cluster:
- Cluster (install on all cluster nodes)
This is the recommended option. If you select this option, Administration Server will be installed on all nodes of the cluster simultaneously.
At the step of selecting the Administration Console for installation, you will need to select the console that will be installed on the current cluster node. If you install a console only on the cluster node, in case of node failure, you will lose access to Administration Server. We recommend that during this step, you select the MMC-based console for installation on all cluster nodes. After you install Administration Server, install Kaspersky Security Center Web Console on a separate device that is not a cluster node. This allows you to manage Administration Server by using Kaspersky Security Center Web Console if the cluster node fails.
- Locally (install on this device only)
If you select this option, Administration Server will be installed only on the current node, as if on a stand-alone server, and Administration Server will not work as a cluster-aware application. For example, you may want to choose this option to save shared storage space if fault tolerance is not needed for Administration Server. In case of the current node failure, you will have to install Administration Server on another node and restore the Administration Server state from a backup.
