Migration administration group structure, included managed devices and other group objects from Kaspersky Security Center Windows to Kaspersky Security Center Linux requires that you first select data for exporting and create an export file. The export file contains information about all group objects that you want to migrate. The export file will be used for subsequent import to Kaspersky Security Center Linux.

You can export the following objects:

  • Tasks and policies of managed applications
  • Global tasks
  • Custom device selections
  • Administration group structure and included devices
  • Tags that have been assigned to migrating devices

Before you start exporting, read general information about migration to Kaspersky Security Center Linux. Choose the migration method—by using or not using the hierarchy of Administration Servers of Kaspersky Security Center Windows and Kaspersky Security Center Linux.

To export managed devices and related group objects through the Migration wizard:

  1. Depending on whether or not the Administration Servers of Kaspersky Security Center Windows and Kaspersky Security Center Linux are arranged into a hierarchy, do one of the following:
    • If the Servers are arranged into a hierarchy, open Kaspersky Security Center Web Console, and then switch to the Server of Kaspersky Security Center Windows.
    • If the Servers are not arranged into a hierarchy, open Kaspersky Security Center Web Console connected to Kaspersky Security Center Windows.
  2. In the main menu, go to Operations → Migration.
  3. To start the wizard and follow its steps, select where you want to transfer your data and settings.
    • If you want to transfer your data and settings to Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console, select Migrate to Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console.
    • If you want to transfer your data and settings to Kaspersky Security Center Linux or Kaspersky XDR Expert, select Migrate to Kaspersky Security Center Linux.
  4. Select the administration group or subgroup to export. Please make sure that the selected administration group or subgroup contains no more than 10,000 devices.
  5. Select the managed applications whose tasks and policies will be exported. Select only applications that are supported by Kaspersky Security Center Linux. The objects of unsupported applications will still be exported, but they will not be operable.
  6. Use the links on the left to select the global tasks, device selections, and reports to export. The Group objects link allows you to exclude custom roles, internal users and security groups, and custom application categories from the export.

The export file (ZIP archive) is created. Depending on whether or not you perform migration with Administration Server hierarchy support, the export file is saved as follows:

  • If the Servers are arranged into a hierarchy, the export file is saved to the temporary folder on Kaspersky Security Center Web Console Server.
  • If the Servers are not arranged into a hierarchy, the export file is downloaded to your device.

For migration with Administration Server hierarchy support, the import starts automatically after a successful export. For migration without Administration Server hierarchy support, you can import the saved export file to Kaspersky Security Center Linux manually.
