This section describes how to install Kaspersky Security Center 13.2 Web Console Server (hereinafter also referred to as Kaspersky Security Center 13.2 Web Console), that connects to Administration Server installed on Kaspersky or Microsoft failover cluster nodes. Prior to installing Kaspersky Security Center 13.2 Web Console, install a database management system and Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server on Kaspersky failover cluster nodes or on Microsoft failover cluster nodes.

If you use a Microsoft failover cluster, we do not recommend installing Kaspersky Security Center 13.2 Web Console on a failover cluster node. In case of node failure, you will lose access to Administration Server.

To install Kaspersky Security Center 13.2 Web Console that connects to Administration Server installed on failover cluster nodes:

  1. Perform the steps of the Kaspersky Security Center 13.2 Web Console installation, starting from step 1 to step 8.
  2. At step 9, in the Trusted Administration Servers window, click the Add button to add a failover cluster as a trusted Administration Server.

    In the opened window, specify the following properties:

    • Administration Server name

      The cluster name that will be displayed in the login window of Kaspersky Security Center 13.2 Web Console.

    • Administration Server address

      Depending on the failover cluster type, specify the cluster address:

      • Kaspersky failover cluster. Specify the IP address of the virtual network adapter as the cluster address if you created the adapter when preparing the cluster nodes. Otherwise, specify the IP address of the third-party load balancer that you use.
      • Microsoft failover cluster. Specify the cluster address that you obtained when creating the Microsoft failover cluster.
    • Administration Server port

      The OpenAPI port that Kaspersky Security Center 13.2 Web Console uses to connect to Administration Server (default value is 13299).

    • Administration Server certificate

      The Administration Server certificate is located in the shared data storage of the Kaspersky failover cluster or the Microsoft failover cluster. The default path to the certificate file: <shared data folder>\1093\cert\klserver.cer. Copy the certificate file from the shared data storage to the device where you install Kaspersky Security Center 13.2 Web Console. Specify the local path to the Administration Server certificate.

  3. Continue with the standard installation of Kaspersky Security Center 13.2 Web Console.

After the installation is complete, a shortcut appears on your desktop and you can log in to Kaspersky Security Center 13.2 Web Console.

If you use a Kaspersky failover cluster, you can go to DISCOVERY & DEPLOYMENTUNASSIGNED DEVICES to view the information about the cluster nodes and the file server.
