After a successful import of information about managed devices, objects, and their settings to Kaspersky Security Center Linux, you need to switch the managed devices to be under management of Kaspersky Security Center Linux to complete the migration.

In the current version of Kaspersky Security Center Linux, you can move the managed devices to be under Kaspersky Security Center Linux either by using the klmover utility or by installing Network Agent on the managed devices through a remote installation task.

To switch managed devices to be under management of Kaspersky Security Center Linux by installing Network Agent:

  1. Switch to Administration Server of Kaspersky Security Center Windows.
  2. Go to Discovery & deploymentDeployment & assignmentInstallation packages, and then open the properties of an existing installation package of Network Agent.

    If the installation package of Network Agent is absent in the package list, download a new one.

  3. On the Settings tab, select the Connection section. Specify the connection settings of Administration Server of Kaspersky Security Center Linux.
  4. Create a remote installation task for imported managed devices, and then specify the reconfigured Network Agent installation package.

    You can install Network Agent through Administration Server of Kaspersky Security Center Windows or through a Windows-based device that acts as a distribution point. If you use Administration Server, enable the Using operating system resources through Administration Server option. If you use a distribution point, enable the Using operating system resources through distribution points option.

  5. Run the remote installation task.

After the remote installation task finishes successfully, go to Administration Server of Kaspersky Security Center Linux and ensure that managed devices are visible in the network, and that Network Agent is installed and running on them (the Yes value in the Visible, Network Agent is installed, and Network Agent is running columns).
