January 10, 2024
Administration Console or Web Console can be used to work with tasks in Kaspersky Security Center. Using the Web Console, you can manage all tasks, except for the Change application components task, which is executed on protected virtual machines with the Light Agent for Windows component installed. Use the Administration Console to manage the Change application components task.
This section describes how to work with tasks in Kaspersky Security Center using the Administration Console. For basic information about managing tasks in Kaspersky Security Center using the Web Console, refer to the Managing tasks in Web Console section. For more information about Web Console, refer to the Kaspersky Security Center help.
You can use the following tasks to manage Kaspersky Security using Kaspersky Security Center:
- Tasks running on the SVM:
- Application activation. Kaspersky Security Center adds a license key to SVMs to activate the application or renew the license.
- Database update. The Protection Server component automatically downloads application database update packages and installs them on SVMs.
- Application module update on an SVM. The Protection Server component installs application module updates on SVMs.
- Database update rollback. The Protection Server component rolls back the last application database update on SVMs.
- Tasks running on protected virtual machines with the Light Agent for Windows component installed:
- Inventory. Kaspersky Security searches for information about all application executable files on protected virtual machines. Getting information about applications installed on protected virtual machines can be useful, for example, for creating optimal application startup control rules.
- Virus scan. Kaspersky Security performs a virus scan of the areas of the protected virtual machine that are specified in the task settings.
- Change application components. Kaspersky Security installs or removes Light Agent functional components on protected virtual machines.
The Change application components task cannot be managed in the Web Console. Use the Administration Console to manage the task.
- Baseline update. Kaspersky Security creates or updates a previously created baseline that is used when running a System Integrity Check.
- System Integrity check. Kaspersky Security compares the current state of the system on selected virtual machines with the previously created baseline system state to detect possibly modifications in the selected objects being monitored.
- System integrity status reset. Kaspersky Security cancels the Critical and Warning statuses received from the System Integrity Monitoring component for virtual machines.
- Virus scan task that runs on protected virtual machines with the Light Agent for Linux component installed. Kaspersky Security performs a virus scan of the areas of the protected virtual machine that are specified in the task settings.
You can use the tasks of the following types to manage Kaspersky Security using Kaspersky Security Center:
