Creating a Light Agent for Linux installation package

Prior to creating an installation package, you need to place the unpacked distribution package of Light Agent for Linux into a folder that can be accessed by the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server.

  1. Open Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console.
  2. In the console tree, select AdvancedRemote installationInstallation packages.
  3. Click the Create installation package button.

    The New Package Wizard starts.

  4. In the wizard window that opens, click the Create installation package for a Kaspersky application button.
  5. Enter the name of the installation package and proceed to the next step of the wizard.
  6. Select the distribution kit of Kaspersky Security. To do so, open the standard window of Microsoft Windows by using the Browse button and specify the path to the lightagent.kud file.

    The Wizard window will display the application name.

    Go to the next step in the wizard.

  7. Read the End User License Agreement concluded between you and Kaspersky, and the Privacy Policy describing the handling and transmission of data.

    All application usage conditions listed in the End User License Agreement for Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 5.1 Light Agent also apply to Kaspersky Security updates: Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 5.1.1 Light Agent and Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 5.1.2 Light Agent.

    To continue creating the installation package, you must confirm that you have fully read and accept the terms of the End User License Agreement and the Privacy Policy. To confirm, select both check boxes in the window of the Wizard.

    Go to the next step in the wizard.

  8. The wizard downloads the files required for installation of the application to the Administration Server of Kaspersky Security Center. Wait for the download to finish.
  9. Finish the wizard.

The created installation package is stored in the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console tree in the AdvancedRemote installationInstallation packages folder. You can use one and the same installation package multiple times.

After creating a Light Agent for Linux installation package, you need to configure the installation package settings. In the installation package properties window, you can specify the settings for connecting Network Agent, which will be installed on the virtual machine together with Light Agent for Linux, to the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server.
