Application activation procedure
December 13, 2023
To activate the application:
- Create an application activation task. You can create the Application Activation task for all SVMs, for the SVMs of one KSC cluster, or for an individual SVM.
When the application activation task is created, a key from the Kaspersky Security Center key storage is used. You can add a key to the Kaspersky Security Center key storage in advance or while creating an application activation task.
If the application is being used based on a subscription, you cannot create an activation task during the grace period. You can use a previously created application activation task to add a key.
- Start the application activation task.
The task activates the application on those SVMs on which an active key was missing. On SVMs on which the application has already been activated, the task replaces the old key with the new one.
If both a server key and a desktop key have been added on your SVM, the application usage period is the longer of the following two periods: the period of application use with the server key or the period of application use with the desktop key.
If the number of licensing units for which the key is being used exceeds the number specified in the License Certificate, Kaspersky Security sends the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server an event containing information about the violation of the license restrictions (please refer to the Kaspersky Security Center documentation).
