kladminserver service fails to run after Kaspersky Security Center upgrade

Latest update: 28 June 2022 ID: 15814

This article concerns Kaspersky Security Center 13.2 (version



After Kaspersky Security Center is upgraded to version 13.2 the kladminserver may fail to run. The log will show the following event:
The service' kladminserver 'was stopped due to an error #1950 (102) Generic db error: "102 'Incorrect syntax near '('.{42000};' LastStatement='EXEC grp_sync_subgroups'".


The error occurs because of the incorrect database compatibility level specified in Microsoft SQL Server.


Change the database compatibility level in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio using the command:

ALTER DATABASE <database name> SET COMPATIBILITY_LEVEL = <compatibility level>

If you are using Microsoft SQL Server Express Edition, download the free version of Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio.

Specify the compatibility level depending on the Microsoft SQL Server version that you are using:

Microsoft SQL Server version Compatibility level
2014 (12.x) 120
2016 (13.x) 130
2017 (14.x) 140
2019 (15.x) 150

You can also change the database compatibility level via the SQL Management Studio GUI. See the guide on the Microsoft website.
