ID 223067

You may want to manage your customers through virtual Administration Servers. If you migrated devices and other items from Kaspersky Security Center on-premises to Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console, the devices are located in administration groups. To manage the customers' devices through virtual Administration Servers, you must move the devices from the administration groups under the management of virtual Administration Servers.

Prerequisites

You have created a virtual Administration Server for each of your customers.

All devices of each customer are located in an individual administration group.

Stages

The scenario proceeds in stages:

  1. Creating a stand-alone installation package for Network Agent

    Switch to each of the created virtual Administration Server, then create a stand-alone installation package for Network Agent. You can switch Administration Servers in the main menu by clicking the chevron icon () to the right of the current Administration Server name, and then selecting the required Administration Server.

  2. Downloading the stand-alone installation packages

    Download the stand-alone installation packages that you created at the previous stage.

  3. Create an archive with each stand-alone installation package

    Available archive types are: ZIP, CAB, TAR, or TAR.GZ.

  4. Creating custom installation packages for Network Agent

    Create custom installation packages for Network Agent. During creation, use archives that you created at the previous stage.

    This stage occurs on the primary Administration Server.

  5. Creating remote installation tasks

    Create remote installation tasks to install Network Agent from the created custom installation packages.

    When creating a task, specify a corresponding administration group.

    This stage occurs on the primary Administration Server.

  6. Run the created remote installation tasks

    Network Agents are updated. The devices are moved under management of virtual Administration Servers.

  7. Creating policies, tasks, and reports

    Create policies, tasks, and reports as required.

Results

You can now manage the migrated customers' devices by using virtual Administration Servers.
