If you do not use an HSM system, don’t change the default value for the Hierarchical storage access type setting (Non-HSM system).

To configure access to the hierarchical storage, you have to specify the way the HSM system determines the location of the file being scanned. You can find this information in the manuals of the HSM system being used.

To define the access type for the hierarchical storage:

  1. In the main window of Web Console, select DevicesPolicies & profiles.
  2. Click the policy name you want to configure.
  3. In the <Policy name> window that opens select the Application settings tab.
  4. Select the Application settings section.
  5. In the Scalability, interface and scan settings subsection, click the Settings button.

    The Scalability, interface and scan settings window opens.

  6. In the HSM system settings section select the option for accessing the HSM system:
    • Non-HSM system.
    • HSM system uses reparse points.
    • HSM system uses extended file attributes.
    • Unknown HSM system.

      If you specify the wrong version or select the Unknown HSM system option, Kaspersky Security for Windows Server may incorrectly determine the location of objects, which will increase the time it takes to process objects.

  7. Click OK.

The configured HSM system settings are saved.
