About the upgrade of the Protection Server
January 10, 2024
Upgrade of the Protection Server is performed by deploying SVM with the new version of the Protection Server in virtual infrastructure. Deployment is performed by using the SVM Management Wizard.
You can also deploy SVMs using the virtual infrastructure tools and configure SVM settings by using the klconfig script API manually or by means of automation tools.
SVMs with the previous version of the Protection Server continue to work on hypervisors. They ensure the protection of virtual machines with the previous version of Kaspersky Security during the application upgrade.
After deploying SVMs with the new version of the Protection Server, you must prepare the Protection Server for operation.
If you are using a licensing scheme based on the number of kernels in physical processors on the hypervisors, after the application is activated on SVMs with the new version of the Protection Server, Kaspersky Security may send an event involving an exceeded license restriction to Kaspersky Security Center. You can ignore this event.
After updating the Light Agent on all protected virtual machines, you can remove SVMs with the previous version of the Protection Server from hypervisors. SVM removal is performed by using the SVM Management Wizard, or manually by using the hypervisor tools.
SVMs that have been removed continue to be displayed in the Administration Console of Kaspersky Security Center. When the period specified in Kaspersky Security Center settings elapses (see Kaspersky Security Center help for details), the SVMs are automatically removed from the Administration Console.
You can manually remove SVMs with the previous version of the Protection Server from the Administration Console of Kaspersky Security Center as soon as the upgrade process has been completed.
