To change the composition of Light Agent for Windows components installed by means of group task for changing the composition of application components:

  1. Open Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Select the Managed devices folder in the console tree to create a task for virtual machines belonging to all administration groups. In the workspace, select the Tasks tab.
    • If you want to create a task for all virtual machines in an administration group, select the folder with the name of this group in the Managed devices folder of the console tree. In the workspace, select the Tasks tab.
    • Open the Tasks folder in the console tree to create a task for one or several virtual machines.
  3. Click the New task button to start the New Task Wizard.

Components for installation are grouped into two blocks: Components for installation on server OS and Components for installation on desktop OS. Select the check boxes next to the components that you want to install, and clear the check boxes next to the components that you want to delete.

    If the check box next to the name of a component is selected, Kaspersky Security will install this component on the virtual machine. If the component is already installed, no changes are made.

    If the check box is cleared next to the name of a component, Kaspersky Security removes the component. If the component was not installed, no changes are made.

  6. If you started the New Task Wizard from the Tasks folder, specify the method of selecting the virtual machines for which you are creating the task. You can select virtual machines from the list of virtual machines discovered by the Administration Server, manually specify the addresses of virtual machines, import a list of virtual machines from a file, or specify a previously configured selection of devices (for details, please refer to the Kaspersky Security Center documentation). Depending on the specified method of selection of virtual machines, perform one of the following operations in the window that opens:

    • Click the Add or Add IP range button and enter the addresses of virtual machines manually.
    • Click the Import button, and in the window that opens select a TXT file with the list of addresses of virtual machines.
    • Click the Select button and in the opened window specify the name of the selection containing the virtual machines for which you want to create the task.
