Activating the tenant
January 10, 2024
At this step of the tenant security infrastructure deployment, the tenant is activated. Tenants are registered in the Integration Server database with the Inactive status. While the tenant is inactive, Light Agents installed on the tenant’s virtual machines do not receive information about the SVMs they can connect to, and protection of the tenant virtual machines is disabled. To start protecting tenant virtual machines, you must activate the tenant.
The tenant activation procedure is automated by means of the Integration Server REST API.
As a result of the procedure, the following actions are performed:
- Tenant status changes to Active. The tenant status is preserved in the Integration Server database. You can receive information about the tenant status using the Integration Server REST API or by viewing the list of tenants in the Integration Server Console.
- The Light agents installed on the tenant virtual machines receive a list of SVMs available for connection from the Integration Server. The Light Agents select the best SVM for connection in accordance with the configured SVM connection settings, thus enabling protection of the tenant virtual machines.
- The status of the policies for enabling and disabling protection of the virtual machines with Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 5.1 Light Agent installed is changed.
Policies for enabling and disabling protection are applied only if Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 5.1 Light Agent is installed in the tenant virtual infrastructure. For more information refer to Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 5.1 Light Agent Help.
