Adding slave Administration Server (performed on the future master Administration Server)

You can add an Administration Server as a slave Administration Server, thus establishing a "master / slave” hierarchy.

To add a slave Administration Server that is available for connection through Kaspersky Security Center 11 Web Console:

  1. Make sure that port 13000 of the future master Administration Server is available for receipt of connections from slave Administration Servers.
  2. On the future master Administration Server, click the Settings icon (Settings icon).
  3. On the properties page that opens, click the Administration Servers tab.
  4. Select the check box next to the name of th administration group to which you want to add the Administration Server.
  5. In the menu line, click Connect slave Administration Server.

    The Connect slave Administration Server Wizard starts.

  6. On the first page of the Wizard, fill in the following fields:
  7. Follow the further instructions of the Wizard.

After the Wizard finishes, the "master / slave" hierarchy is built. The master Administration Server starts receiving connection from the slave Administration Server through port 13000. The tasks and policies from the master Administration Server are received and applied. The slave Administration Server is displayed on the master Administration Server, in the administration group to which it was added.

Adding slave Administration Server (performed on the future slave Administration Server)

If you could not connect to the future slave Administration Server (for example, because it was temporarily disconnected or unavailable), you are still able to add a slave Administration Server.

To add as slave an Administration Server that is not available for connection through Kaspersky Security Center 11 Web Console:

  1. Send the certificate file of the future master Administration Server to the system administrator of the office where the future slave Administration Server is located. (You can, for example, write the file to an external device, such as a flash drive, or send it by email.)

    The certificate file is located on the of the future master Administration Server, at %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\KasperskyLab\adminkit\1093\cert\klserver.cer.

  2. Prompt the system administrator in charge of the future slave Administration Server to do the following:
    1. Click the Settings icon (Settings icon).
    2. On the properties page that opens, proceed to the Hierarchy of Administration Servers section of the General tab.
    3. Select the This Administration Server is slave in the hierarchy option.
    4. In the Master Administration Server address field, enter the network name of the future master Administration Server.
    5. Select the previously saved file with the certificate of the future master Administration Server by clicking Browse.
    6. If necessary, select the Connect master Administration Server to slave Administration Server in DMZ check box.
    7. If the connection to the future slave Administration Server is performed through a proxy server, select the Use proxy server check box and specify the connection settings.
    8. Click Save.

The "master / slave" hierarchy is built. The master Administration Server starts receiving connection from the slave Administration Server using port 13000. The tasks and policies from the master Administration Server are received and applied. The slave Administration Server is displayed on the master Administration Server, in the administration group where it was added.
