Installing Administration Console on the administrator's workstation

You can install Administration Console on the administrator's workstation separately and manage Administration Server over the network using that Console. You can install Administration Console through the Setup Wizard or in non-interactive mode.

Installing Administration Console through the Setup Wizard

To install Administration Console on the administrator's workstation:

  1. Run the setup.exe executable file.

    A window opens prompting you to select Kaspersky Lab applications to install.

  2. In the application selection window, click the Install Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console link to run the Administration Console Setup Wizard. Follow the instructions of the Wizard.
  3. Select a destination folder. By default, this will be <Disk>:\Program Files\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Security Center Console. If such a folder does not exist, it is created automatically during the installation. You can change the destination folder by using the Browse button.
  4. On the last page of the Setup Wizard click the Start button to start installation of Administration Console.

When the Wizard completes, Administration Console will be installed on the administrator's workstation.

After installing Administration Console, you must connect to the Administration Server. To do this, run Administration Console and, in the window that opens, specify the name or the IP address of the device on which Administration Server is installed, as well as the settings of the account used to connect to it. After connection to Administration Server is established, you can manage the anti-virus protection system using this Administration Console.

Installing Administration Console in non-interactive mode

Administration Console can be installed in non-interactive mode, that is, without the interactive input of installation parameters.

To install Administration Console on a local device in non-interactive mode,

Run the command

setup.exe /s /l /v”EULA=1 PRIVATEPOLICY=1"

Where the /s key starts installation in non-interactive (silent) mode. The /l key is for the full path to the installer file. For example, installer.exe /l c:\windows\temp\log.txt. The /v key is intended for translating the value of the additional parameter to the installer.

The setup.exe file is located in the Console folder, which is part of the Kaspersky Security Center distribution kit.

Running the executable file with the EULA=1 and PRIVACYPOLICY=1 keys means that you accept the terms of the License Agreement and the Privacy Policy, respectively. The text of the License Agreement and the Privacy Policy is included in the Kaspersky Security Center distribution kit. Accepting the terms of the License Agreement and the Privacy Policy is necessary for installing the application or upgrading a previous version of the application.

You can remove Administration Console with standard Microsoft Windows add / remove tools.
