April 8, 2024

ID 3911

If you have to manually connect a client device to the Administration Server, you can use the klmover utility on the client device.

When Network Agent is installed on a client device, the utility is automatically copied to the Network Agent installation folder.

To manually connect a client device to the Administration Server by using the klmover utility:

On the device, start the klmover utility from the command line.

When started from the command line, the klmover utility can perform the following actions (depending on which keys are in use):

  • Connects Network Agent to Administration Server with the specified settings;
  • Records the operation results in the event log file or displays them on the screen.

Utility command line syntax:

klmover [-logfile <file name>] [-address <server address>] [-pn <port number>] [-ps <SSL port number>] [-nossl] [-cert <path to certificate file>] [-silent] [-dupfix] [-virtserv] [-cloningmode]

The administrator rights are required to run the utility.

Descriptions of the keys:

  • -logfile <file name>—Record the utility run results in a log file.

    By default, information is saved in the standard output stream (stdout). If the key is not in use, results and error messages are displayed on the screen.

  • -address <server address>—Address of the Administration Server for connection.

    You can specify an IP address, the NetBIOS name, or the DNS name of a device as its address.

  • -pn <port number>—Number of the port through which non-encrypted connection to the Administration Server is established.

    The default port number is 14000.

  • -ps <SSL port number>—Number of the SSL port through which encrypted connection to the Administration Server is established using SSL.

    The default port number is 13000.

  • -nossl—Use non-encrypted connection to the Administration Server.

    If the key is not in use, Network Agent is connected to Administration Server by using encrypted SSL protocol.

  • -cert <path to certificate file>—Use the specified certificate file for authentication of access to Administration Server.

    If the key is not in use, Network Agent receives a certificate at the first connection to Administration Server.

  • -silent—Run the utility in silent mode.

    Using the key may be useful if, for example, the utility is started from the logon script at the user's registration.

  • -dupfix—The key is used if Network Agent has been installed using a method that differs from the usual one (with the distribution package)—for example, by recovering it from an ISO disk image.
  • -virtserv—Name of the virtual Administration Server.
  • -cloningmode—Network Agent disk cloning mode.

    Use one of the following parameters to configure the disk cloning mode:

    • -cloningmode—Request the status of the disk cloning mode.
    • -cloningmode 1—Enable the disk cloning mode.
    • -cloningmode 0—Disable the disk cloning mode.

For example, to connect Network Agent to Administration Server, run the following command:

klmover -address kscserver.mycompany.com -logfile klmover.log
