Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console

Scenario: Manual migration with virtual Administration Servers

July 15, 2024

ID 228023

You can migrate from Kaspersky Security Center Web Console running on-premises to Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console manually.

Prerequisites

Before migration, you must perform a number of actions, including upgrading Administration Server running on-premises to version 12 or later and upgrading the managed applications to versions supported by Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console.

Migration scenario

The scenario proceeds in stages:

  1. Creating an administration group for each of your virtual Administration Servers

    In Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console, create an administration group that corresponds to each of your virtual Administration Servers.

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

    Create a stand-alone installation package for Network Agent. During creation, specify the administration group that you created at the previous stage. This means that you must create an individual stand-alone installation package for each administration group.

    This stage occurs in your Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console.

  3. Downloading the stand-alone installation packages

    Download the stand-alone installation packages that you created at the previous stage. This stage occurs in your Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console.

  4. Creating an archive with each stand-alone installation package

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

  5. 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 in your Kaspersky Security Center running on-premises.

  6. 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 in your Kaspersky Security Center running on-premises.

  7. Running the created remote installation tasks

    Network Agents are updated. The Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console Administration Server takes over the management of them.

    All devices are migrated to Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console and are placed in administration groups that were specified when you created stand-alone installation packages for Network Agent.

  8. Moving devices under management of virtual Administration Servers (optional step)

    If you want to manage your customers through virtual Administration Servers, move the devices from the administration groups under management of virtual Administration Servers.

  9. Creating policies, tasks, and reports

    Create policies, tasks, and reports as required.

Results

Upon finishing with the migration, you can make sure that it was successful:

  • Network Agent is re-installed on all managed devices.
  • All devices are managed through Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console.

    All object settings that were effective before migration are preserved.
