This section contains a list of the files that are required for the installation of Kaspersky Security components.

Kaspersky Security components installation Wizard

The Kaspersky Security Components Installation Wizard is required for the following tasks:

The file named ksvla-components_5.1.x.x_mlg.exe (5.1.Х.Х represents the application version number) is required for starting the Kaspersky Security Components Installation Wizard.

You need to download this file from the Kaspersky Lab website.

Kaspersky Security administration plug-ins and the Integration Server

The Kaspersky Security administration plug-ins, Integration Server, and Integration Server Console are installed by using the Kaspersky Security Components Installation Wizard. You need to save the file ksvla-components_5.1.x.x_mlg.exe on the computer where Kaspersky Security Center is installed.

Toinstall the Protection Server, you need an SVM image file and an image description file (XML file). You can download archives containing SVM images and SVM image description files from the Kaspersky Lab website by using the Kaspersky Security Components Installation Wizard. To start the Wizard, you need the file named ksvla-components_5.1.x.x_mlg.exe.

The Kaspersky Security distribution kit includes archives for installing the Protection Server on hypervisors of various types:

The SVM image file and the image description file (in XML format) must be located in the same folder on the computer where the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console is installed, or in the same folder on a network resource to which the user account performing the installation has read access. If you want to install the Protection Server on different types of hypervisors, SVM image files for each type of hypervisor and the image description file must be placed in the same folder.

Light Agent for Windows

The files required for installation of the Light Agent for Windows component are included in the Kaspersky Security Components Installation Wizard.

While installing the Kaspersky Security administration plug-ins and Integration Server on the computer where the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server is installed, the Kaspersky Security Components Installation Wizard automatically creates an installation package for remote installation of Light Agent for Windows in Kaspersky Security Center. This installation package is stored in the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console tree in the Additional -> Remote installation -> Installation packages folder under the name Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 5.1 Light Agent for Windows (5.1.X.X), where 5.1.X.X represents the application version number.

Kaspersky Security Center Network Agent

For the interaction between Light Agent components installed on virtual machines and Kaspersky Security Center, you must install Network Agent on virtual machines where Light Agent will be installed.

On a virtual machine running a Windows operating system, you can install Network Agent that is included in the distribution kit of Kaspersky Security Center 11 or Kaspersky Security Center 10 Service Pack 3.

On a virtual machine that has the Light Agent for Linux component, you must install the Kaspersky Security Center Network Agent that is included in the distribution kit of Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 5.1 Light Agent:
