You can upgrade the following application versions to Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 4.0 Light Agent:

  • Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Service Pack 1 Light Agent
  • Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Light Agent Maintenance Release 2

The application upgrade process consists of the following steps:

  1. Upgrade Kaspersky Security Center 10 to Kaspersky Security Center 10 Service Pack 2 or Kaspersky Security Center 10 Service Pack 2 Maintenance Release 1.
  2. Upgrade the management components of Kaspersky Security (Kaspersky Security administration plug-ins, Integration Server, and the Integration Server Management Console). This procedure is executed using a unified installer containing all of the listed components.

    When upgrading from Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Service Pack 1 Light Agent:

    • The upgrade is performed by installing the new version of Kaspersky Security administration plug-ins, and by installing the Integration Server and the Integration Server Management Console. The administration plug-ins of Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Service Pack 1 Light Agent are automatically removed.
    • The upgraded plug-ins let you manage Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Service Pack 1 Light Agent installed on SVMs and protected virtual machines. Policies and tasks that were configured using administration plug-ins of Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Service Pack 1 Light Agent are automatically converted to policies and tasks of Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 4.0 Light Agent.

    When upgrading from Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Light Agent Maintenance Release 2:

    • The upgrade is performed by installing the new version of Kaspersky Security administration plug-ins, and by installing the Integration Server and the Integration Server Management Console. The administration plug-ins of Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Light Agent Maintenance Release 2 will continue to work. You can use them to manage Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Light Agent Maintenance Release 2 installed on SVMs and protected virtual machines.
    • If you want to use the settings of policies and tasks that were configured for Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Light Agent Maintenance Release 2, you can convert those policies and tasks by using the Kaspersky Security Center Policies and Tasks Conversion Wizard. You can also create new policies on the basis of the existing policies using the Policy Wizard.
  3. Upgrade of the Protection Server component. The upgrade is executed by deploying SVMs with the new version of the Protection Server component on hypervisors. Deployment is performed by using the Deployment Wizard. Manual SVM deployment using hypervisor tools is not supported.

    After deploying SVMs with the new version of the Protection Server component, you must perform the following actions:

    • Activate the application on the SVMs with the new version of the Protection Server component. To activate the application, add a key for all deployed SVMs.
    • Update the anti-virus databases of the application on the SVMs with the new version of the Protection Server component.

    SVMs with the previous version of the Protection Server component continue to work on hypervisors.  

    When upgrading from Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Service Pack 1 Light Agent, you can remove SVMs with the previous version of the Protection Server component immediately after activating the application and updating the anti-virus databases on the new SVMs. Light Agents of the previous version can connect to SVMs with the new version of the Protection Server component.

    When upgrading from Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Light Agent Maintenance Release 2, SVMs with the previous version of the Protection Server component ensure protection of virtual machines with Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Light Agent Maintenance Release 2 during the application upgrade. You can remove SVMs with the previous version of the Protection Server component after upgrading the Light Agent component on all protected virtual machines. SVMs are uninstalled via the Management Console of the virtual infrastructure (for more details, refer to the documentation on the deployed hypervisors).

  4. Update the Light Agent component for Windows:
    1. Create a remote task for stopping Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Service Pack 1 Light Agent and run it.
    2. Create a remote task for installing Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 4.0 Service Pack 1 Light Agent.
    3. Run the task on the machines where Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Service Pack 1 Light Agent has been stopped.
When upgrading from Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Light Agent Maintenance Release 2, after upgrading all Light Agents, you can remove the administration plug-ins of Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 3.0 Light Agent Maintenance Release 2 by using the standard operating system tools for removing applications.
