Specifying certificates for trusted Administration Servers

The existing Administration Server certificate is automatically replaced with a new one before the certificate expiration date. You can also replace the existing Administration Server certificate with a third-party one. Every time the certificate is changed, the new certificate must be specified in the settings of Kaspersky Security Center 11 Web Console. Otherwise, Kaspersky Security Center 11 Web Console will not be able to connect to the Administration Server.

If Kaspersky Security Center 11 Web Console and the Administration Server are installed on the same device, Kaspersky Security Center 11 Web Console receives the new certificate automatically. If Kaspersky Security Center 11 Web Console is installed on a different device, you must specify the local path to the new Administration Server certificate.

To specify a new certificate for the Administration Server:

  1. On the device where the Administration Server is installed, copy the certificate file, for example, to a mass storage device.

    By default, the certificate file is stored in the ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\KasperskyLab\adminkit\1093\cert folder.

  2. On the device where Kaspersky Security Center 11 Web Console is installed, place the certificate file in a local folder.
  3. Run the KSCWebConsoleInstaller.11.0.<build number>.exe executable file under an account with administrative privileges.

    This starts the Setup Wizard.

  4. On the first page of the Wizard, select the Upgrade option.
  5. On the Modification type page, select the Edit connection settings option.
  6. On the Trusted Administration Servers page, select the required Administration Server and click the Edit button.

  8. On the last page of the Wizard, click Modify to apply the new settings.
  9. After the application reconfiguration successfully completes, click the Finish button.
  10. Log in to Kaspersky Security Center 11 Web Console.

Kaspersky Security Center 11 Web Console works with the specified certificate.
