About clusters and server arrays
Oct 23, 2023
Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console supports cluster technology. If Network Agent sends information to Administration Server confirming that an application installed on a client device is part of a server array, this client device becomes a cluster node.
If an administration group contains clusters or server arrays, the Managed devices page displays two tabs—one for individual devices, and one for clusters and server arrays. After the managed devices are detected as cluster nodes, the cluster is added as an individual object to the Clusters and server arrays tab.
The cluster or server array nodes are listed on the Devices tab, along with other managed devices. You can view properties of the nodes as individual devices and perform other operations, but you cannot delete a cluster node or move it to another administration group separately from its cluster. You can only delete or move an entire cluster.
You can perform the following operations with clusters or server arrays:
- View properties
- Move the cluster or server array to another administration group
When you move a cluster or server array to another group, all of its nodes move with it, because a cluster and any of its nodes always belong to the same administration group.
It is reasonable to delete a cluster or server array only when the cluster or server array does not exist in the organization network any longer. If a cluster is still visible on your network and Network Agent and the Kaspersky security application are still installed on the cluster nodes, Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console returns the deleted cluster and its nodes back to the list of managed devices automatically.
