You can remotely run files using the Start process task. For example, you can remotely run an utility that creates the computer configuration file. Next you can use the Get file task to receive the created file in Kaspersky Security Center Web Console.

You can configure the task for EDR Optimum in Web Console and Cloud Console. Task settings for EDR Expert are available only in Cloud Console.

To create a Start process task:

  1. In the main window of the Web Console, select DevicesTasks.

    The list of tasks opens.

  2. Click Add.

    The Task Wizard starts.

  3. Configure the task settings:
    1. In the Application drop-down list, select Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows (12.4).
    2. In the Task type drop-down list, select Start process.
    3. In the Task name field, enter a brief description.
    4. In the Select devices to which the task will be assigned block, select the task scope.
  4. Select devices according to the selected task scope option. Click the Next button.
  5. Enter the account credentials of the user whose rights you want to use to run the task. Click the Next button.

    By default, Kaspersky Endpoint Security starts the task as the system user account (SYSTEM).

  6. Finish the wizard by clicking the Finish button.

    A new task will be displayed in the list of tasks.

  7. Click the new task.
  8. The task properties window opens.
  9. Select the Application settings tab.
  10. Enter the process start command.

    For example, if you want to run an utility (utility.exe) that saves the information about the computer's configuration to a file named conf.txt, you must enter the following values:

    • Executable commandutility.exe
    • Command line arguments (optional)/R conf.txt
    • Path to the working folder (optional)C:\Users\admin\Diagnostic\

    Alternatively, in the Executable command field, you can enter C:\Users\admin\Diagnostic\utility.exe /R conf.txt. In this case you do not need to enter the rest of the settings.

  11. In the task properties window, select the Schedule tab.
  12. Configure the task schedule.

    Wake-on-LAN is not available for this task. Make sure the computer is turned on to run the task.

  13. Click the Save button.
  14. Select the check box next to the task.
  15. Click the Run button.

As a result, Kaspersky Endpoint Security runs the command in silent mode and starts the process. You can view the results of the task in task properties in the Execution results section.
