Forced synchronization

Although Kaspersky Security Center automatically synchronizes the status, settings, tasks, and policies for managed devices, in some cases the administrator must know for certain whether synchronization has already been performed for a specified device at the present moment.

To force synchronization between the Administration Server and a managed device:

  1. On the DEVICES tab, select MANAGED DEVICES.
  2. Click the name of the device that you want to synchronize with the Administration Server.

    A property window opens with the General section selected.

  3. Click the Force synchronization button.

The application synchronizes the selected device with the Administration Server.

After changing a policy for a Kaspersky Lab application on the Administration Server, the administrator can check whether the changed policy has been delivered to a specific managed device. A policy can be delivered during a regular synchronization or a forced synchronization.

To view the date and time that a product policy was delivered to a managed device:

  1. On the DEVICES tab, select MANAGED DEVICES.
  2. Click the name of the device that you want to synchronize with the Administration Server.

    A property window opens with the General section selected.

  3. Click the Applications tab.
  4. Select the application for which you want to view the policy synchronization date.

    The application policy window opens with the General section selected and the policy delivery date and time displayed.
