This section describes how to install Kaspersky Security Center Web Console Server (hereinafter also referred to as Kaspersky Security Center Web Console), that connects to Administration Server installed on Kaspersky Security Center failover cluster nodes or Windows Server failover cluster nodes. Prior to installing Kaspersky Security Center Web Console, install a DBMS and Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server on Kaspersky Security Center failover cluster nodes or on Windows Server failover cluster nodes.

If you use a Windows Server failover cluster, we do not recommend installing Kaspersky Security Center Web Console on a failover cluster node. In case of node failure, you will lose access to Administration Server.

To install Kaspersky Security Center Web Console that connects to Administration Server installed on failover cluster nodes:

  1. Perform the steps of the Kaspersky Security Center Web Console installation, starting from step 1 to step 8.
  2. At step 9, in the Trusted Administration Servers window, click the Add button to add a failover cluster as a trusted Administration Server.

    In the opened window, specify the following properties:

    • Administration Server name

      The cluster name that will be displayed in the login window of Kaspersky Security Center Web Console.

    • Administration Server address

      Depending on the failover cluster type, specify the cluster address:

      • Kaspersky Security Center failover cluster. Specify the IP address of the secondary network adapter as the cluster address if you created the adapter when preparing the cluster nodes. Otherwise, specify the IP address of the third-party load balancer that you use.
      • Windows Server failover cluster. Specify the cluster address that you obtained when creating the Windows Server failover cluster.
    • Administration Server port

      The OpenAPI port that Kaspersky Security Center Web Console uses to connect to Administration Server (default value is 13299).

    • Administration Server certificate

      The Administration Server certificate is located in the shared data storage of the Kaspersky Security Center failover cluster or the Windows Server failover cluster. The default path to the certificate file: <shared data folder>\1093\cert\klserver.cer. Copy the certificate file from the shared data storage to the device where you install Kaspersky Security Center Web Console. Specify the local path to the Administration Server certificate.

  3. Continue with the standard installation of Kaspersky Security Center Web Console.

After the installation is complete, a shortcut appears on your desktop and you can log in to Kaspersky Security Center Web Console.

If you use a Kaspersky Security Center failover cluster, you can go to Discovery & deploymentUnassigned devices to view the information about the cluster nodes and the file server.
