Support of dynamic virtual machines
Nov 27, 2023
Kaspersky Security Center supports dynamic virtual machines. If a virtual infrastructure has been deployed on the organization's network, dynamic (temporary) virtual machines can be used in certain cases. The dynamic VMs are created under unique names based on a template that has been prepared by the administrator. The user works on a VM for a while and then, after being turned off, this virtual machine will be removed from the virtual infrastructure. If Kaspersky Security Center has been deployed on the organization's network, a virtual machine with installed Network Agent will be added to the Administration Server database. After you turn off a virtual machine, the corresponding entry must also be removed from the database of Administration Server.
To make functional the feature of automatic removal of entries on virtual machines, when installing Network Agent on a template for dynamic virtual machines, select the Enable dynamic mode for VDI option:
- For remote installation—In the properties window of the installation package of Network Agent (Advanced section)
- For interactive installation—In the Network Agent installation wizard
Avoid selecting the Enable dynamic mode for VDI option when installing Network Agent on physical devices.
If you want events from dynamic virtual machines to be stored on the Administration Server for a while after you remove those virtual machines, then, in the Administration Server properties window, in the Events repository section, select the Store events after devices are deleted option and specify the maximum storage term for events (in days).
