You can install Kaspersky Security for Windows Server on managed devices and you might want to launch this application's Real-Time File Protection task. However, the application comes without the databases that are needed for it to work correctly. The databases are downloaded to the managed device only after the Download updates to the repositories of distribution points task has completed.

If you want to start the Real-Time File Protection task on a managed device right after Kaspersky Security for Windows Server is installed on it, you must make sure that the databases for that application are downloaded and are up to date. Otherwise, the task might work incorrectly.

To make sure that Kaspersky Security for Windows Server databases are up to date:

  1. Make sure that the Download updates to the repositories of distribution points task has completed on Administration Server.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • In the settings of the Real-Time File Protection task, set the start to At application launch, and then restart the managed device.
    • In the settings of the Real-Time File Protection task, manually set the start time to the time you want.

The Real-Time File Protection task in Kaspersky Security for Windows Server is ready to work correctly.
