Creating the download updates to the repository task

The download updates to the repository task of the Administration Server is created automatically by the Kaspersky Security Center Quick Start Wizard. You can create only one download updates to the repository task. Therefore, you can create a download updates to the repository task only if this task was removed from the Administration Server tasks list.

To create a download updates to the repository task:

  1. In the console tree, select the Tasks folder.
  2. Start creation of the task in one of the following ways:
    • By selecting CreateTask in the context menu of the Tasks folder in the console tree.
    • By clicking the Create a task button in the workspace.

The New Task Wizard starts. Follow the instructions of the Wizard. In the Task type wizard window, select Download updates to the repository.

After the Wizard completes, the Download updates to the repository task will be created in the list of Administration Server tasks.

When Administration Server performs the Download updates to the repository task, updates to databases and software modules are downloaded from the updates source and stored in the shared folder. If you create this task for an administration group, it will only be applied to Network Agents included in the specified administration group.

Updates are distributed to client devices and slave Administration Servers from the shared folder.

The following resources can be used as a source of updates for the Administration Server:

Source selection depends on task settings. By default, updating is performed over the Internet from Kaspersky Lab update servers.
