Changes in the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console after installing Kaspersky Security
January 10, 2024
Displaying virtual machines and SVMs in the console tree
After installation of Kaspersky Security in the virtual infrastructure, the SVMs and protected virtual machines on which Network Agent is installed will forward information about themselves to Kaspersky Security Center. By default, Kaspersky Security Center adds the virtual machines on which Kaspersky Security is installed to the Unassigned devices folder.
In the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console, an SVM is displayed under the name that you specified during deployment of this SVM. The name of the protected virtual machine matches the network name of the virtual machine (hostname). If a virtual machine with the same name is already registered on the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server, a sequence number is added to the name of the new virtual machine, for example: <Name>~1, <Name>~2.
If you configured rules for moving virtual machines to administration groups prior to installing the application, Kaspersky Security Center moves the virtual machines on which Kaspersky Security is installed to the specified administration groups in accordance with the configured rules for moving virtual machines.
After it is deployed on the hypervisor, the SVM forwards the following tag to Kaspersky Security Center:
%VmType%=SVM indicates that the virtual machine is an SVM.
A protected virtual machine with Kaspersky Security Center Network Agent installed sends the following tag to Kaspersky Security Center:
%VmType%=<Persistent / Nonpersistent> (indicates whether the virtual machine is a temporary virtual machine).
You can use the specified tags when creating rules for moving SVMs and protected virtual machines to administration groups.
You can manually move virtual machines to the Managed devices administration group or nested administration groups (for more detailed information about moving virtual machines to administration groups, please refer to the Kaspersky Security Center help).
Default policy and tasks
After Kaspersky Security MMC plug-ins for the Managed devices administration group are installed, the default Protection Server policy and the following tasks are automatically created:
- Virus scan task for Light Agent for Windows.
- Virus scan task for Light Agent for Linux.
- Database update task on the Protection Server.
As a result of Kaspersky Security MMC plug-ins and Integration Server installation, installation packages are created on Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server:
- Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 5.2 Light Agent for Windows (5.2.X.X)
- Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 5.2 Light Agent for Linux (5.2.X.X)
where 5.2.X.X is the application version number.
The installation packages are stored in the Administration Console in the Additional → Remote installation → Installation packages folder. You can use these installation packages for remote installation of Light Agent for Windows and Light Agent for Linux.
