Manage tasks via Light Agent for Windows local interface
January 10, 2024
In addition to the tasks that can be configured through Kaspersky Security Center for managing Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 5.2 Light Agent, you can also use tasks that can be configured through the local interface of Light Agent for Windows on a protected virtual machine, provided that the display of local tasks and their management are not prohibited by the Light Agent for Windows policy.
You can use the following tasks to manage the application via the local interface of Light Agent for Windows:
- Full Scan. Kaspersky Security thoroughly scans the operating system of the protected virtual machine, including kernel memory, running processes and startup objects, boot sectors, backup storage of the operating system, and all hard drives and removable drives.
- Custom Scan. Kaspersky Security scans user-specified objects on the protected virtual machine.
- Critical Areas Scan. Kaspersky Security scans the protected virtual machine’s kernel memory, running processes and startup objects, boot sectors and objects vulnerable to rootkit infection.
- Update. Light Agent downloads an application module and database update package from the SVM and installs the updates on a protected virtual machine.
- 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 a protected virtual machine with the previously created baseline system state snapshot to detect possibly modifications in the selected objects being monitored.
You can perform the following actions with tasks in the local interface:
Information about scan results and about all events that occurred during the performance of tasks is written to Kaspersky Security reports.
