Kaspersky Security Center supports automatic downloads of application database and module update packages to SVMs. This can be done using the following tasks:

  • Download updates to the storage task. This task allows you to download an update package from Kaspersky Security Center update source to the Administration Server repository.

    The download updates to the repository task is created automatically by the Kaspersky Security Center Initial Configuration Wizard. Only one instance of the download updates to the repository task can be created. This is why you can create a download updates to the repository task only if it has been deleted from the list of Administration Server tasks. For details, please refer to the Kaspersky Security Center help.

  • Database update task on the Protection Server. The task allows you to download application database and module update packages to the SVMs included in the selected administration group. The download is performed according to the configured schedule.

    After Kaspersky Security management MMC plug-ins are installed in Kaspersky Security Center, the database update task is automatically created on the Protection Server. The task is created for the Managed devices administration group and lets you download the application database and module update packages to all SVMs included in the Managed devices group or to any nested administration group.

    To download the application module and database update packages to SVMs, you can use the automatically created database update task on the Protection Server. The task is started every time an update package is downloaded to the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server repository. If necessary, you can change the settings of this task or delete it and create a new database update task on the Protection Server.

To configure automatic download of application database and module update package:

  1. Make sure that the download updates to the repository task is available in Kaspersky Security Center. If the download updates to the repository task is absent, create it (please refer to the Kaspersky Security Center help).
  2. Make sure that Protection Server database update task has been created in Kaspersky Security Center, or create an update task for SVMs on which you want to update the databases and application modules.
