You can enable tracing in Kaspersky Anti-Virus 8.0 for Windows Servers Enterprise Edition either via Anti-Virus Console or from command line on the server. Yet Anti-Virus Console allows selecting particular subsystems of the Anti-Virus to trace. If you enable tracing from command line prompt, it will be enabled for all subsystems.

The tracing can be enabled in Anti-Virus Console on the tab Malfunction diagnosis in Kaspersky Anti-Virus properties:

Each Kaspersky Anti-Virus subsystem saves its trace file in a separate file in a selected folder (debug files folder).

It is important:

    1. there must exist a folder for trace files;

    2. do not use folders on network drives on the server or on disks created via the command SUBST to save trace files;

    3. observe the case of letters when typing names of Kaspersky Anti-Virus subsystems to be traced (debugged components);

    4. subsystems should be separated with a symbol of coma;

    5. when a trace file reaches its maximum size, Anti-Virus starts writing a new file. Old files remain;

    6. file size may vary depending on the trace details level and write time, it can be very large. Make sure you have enough free disk space before enabling generation of traces.

    7. Do not leave the traces enabled for a long time, it can affect your server performance.

The code gui enables tracing only for the Console installed on the protected server!
In order to enable tracing on a remote console, it is necessary to add the following system registry key on that host and restart the Console:

  • Microsoft Windows 32 bit (download a ready .reg file for 32 bit OS):


  • Microsoft Windows 64 bit (download a ready .reg file for 64 bit OS):


If you enable tracing with these ready .reg files, trace logs will be saved into the folder C:\Temp.
