Support of virtual machines copying
Oct 23, 2023
Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console supports copying a virtual machine with installed Network Agent or creating one from a template with installed Network Agent.
Network Agent can automatically detect copying of virtual machines in the following cases:
- The Enable dynamic mode for VDI option was selected when Network Agent was installed—After each restart of the operating system, this virtual machine will be recognized as a new device, regardless of whether it has been copied or not.
- One of the following hypervisors is in use: VMware™, HyperV®, or Xen®: Network Agent detects the copying of the virtual machine by the changed IDs of the virtual hardware.
Analysis of changes in virtual hardware is not absolutely reliable. Before applying this method widely, you must test it on a small pool of virtual machines for the version of the hypervisor currently used in your organization.
