Any Microsoft Exchange server with Kaspersky Security 8.0 for Microsoft Exchange Server MP2 can be set as the update center.

Update centers receive the most recent databases from Kaspersky Lab servers and can serve as sources of updates for the application databases of other Microsoft Exchange servers with the application installed.

Update centers can be useful in the following cases:

  • If there are several Microsoft Exchange servers (with the application installed) on the corporate network, you can set one of the Microsoft Exchange servers as the update center that will receive databases from Kaspersky Lab servers and assign it as an update source for other Microsoft Exchange servers of the company. This will reduce the Internet traffic, help to maintain databases of all Microsoft Exchange servers in the identical state, and eliminate the need to configure the Internet connection for each Microsoft Exchange server and monitor the security of such connections.
  • If the corporate network includes geographically distributed server segments with slow data links, you can create a dedicated update center for each regional segment to receive database updates from Kaspersky Lab servers. This will reduce the network traffic between regional segments and speed up the distribution of updates to all servers on the corporate network.

To designate a server as the Update Center, open the Administration Console of Kaspersky Security 8.0 for Microsoft Exchange Server MP2 and enable the Server functions as Update Center check box in the Updates section. 

The Microsoft Exchange server designated as the should have a constant Internet connection and 500 MB of extra disk space.
