To create an installation package, do the following:

  1. Connect to the necessary Administration Server.
  2. In the console tree, in the Remote installation folder select the Installation packages subfolder.
  3. Start creation of an installation package in one of the following ways:

When creating an installation package for the Kaspersky Lab application, you may be prompted to view the License Agreement and the Privacy Policy for this application. Please carefully read the License Agreement and Privacy Policy. If you agree with all the terms of the License Agreement and the Privacy Policy, select the following check boxes in the I confirm I have fully read, understood, and accept the following section:

Installation of the application on your device will continue after you select both check boxes. Creation of the installation package then resumes. The path to the License Agreement and Privacy Policy file is specified in a KUD or KPD file included in the distribution kit of the application for which the installation package is to be created.

When you create an installation package for Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac, you can select the language of the License Agreement and Privacy Policy.

During creation of an installation package for an application from the Kaspersky Lab database of applications, you can enable automatic installation of system components (prerequisites) required for installation of the application. The New Package Wizard displays a list of all available system components for the selected application. If a patch installation package is created (incomplete distribution package), the list contains all system prerequisites for deployment of the patch, up to the full distribution package. You can find this list at any time in the installation package properties.

After the New Package Wizard finishes, the new installation package appears in the workspace of the Installation packages folder, in the console tree.

You do not have to manually create an installation package for remote installation of Network Agent. It is created automatically during Kaspersky Security Center installation and is stored in the Installation packages folder. If the package for remote installation of the Network Agent has been deleted, to re-create it you select the nagent10.kud file in the NetAgent folder of the Kaspersky Security Center distribution package.

Do not specify any details of privileged accounts in the parameters of installation packages.

When an installation package for Administration Server is created, select the sc10.kud file in the root folder of the Kaspersky Security Center distribution package as the description file.
