You can manage Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 6.0 Light Agent using Protection Server tasks and Light Agent tasks.

A Protection Server task is a task that runs on an SVM and determines the operation settings of the Protection Server on that SVM. You can use Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console or Kaspersky Security Center Web Console to work with Protection Server tasks.

A Light Agent task is a task that runs on a protected virtual machine with the Light Agent component installed and implements Light Agent functions. You can manage Light Agent tasks either centrally through Kaspersky Security Center or locally on protected virtual machines. To manage Light Agent for Linux tasks locally, you can use the command line and configuration files. For more information about managing Light Agent tasks, see the Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Linux Help.

You can use the following types of tasks in Kaspersky Security Center:

  • Group task – a task that is performed on the client devices of the selected administration group. In relation to the Kaspersky Security solution, group tasks are performed on SVMs or protected virtual machines that belong to administration groups.
  • Task for device sets – a task that runs on one or more SVMs or protected virtual machines, regardless of their membership in administration groups.

You can manage Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 6.0 Light Agent using the following Protection Server tasks:

  • Solution activation. The task lets you add a license key to the SVM to activate the solution or to extend the license period.
  • Database update. During the execution of this task, the Protection Server downloads a package of database updates required for the solution to operate and installs the database updates on the SVM.
  • Solution module update on the SVM. During the execution of this task, the Protection Server installs updates of the solution's application modules on the SVM.
  • Database update rollback. During the execution of this task, the Protection Server rolls back the latest update of the solution's databases on the SVM.

You can perform the following actions on Protection Server tasks in Kaspersky Security Center:

The Protection Server sends information about all events that occur during task execution to the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Server. For more information about managing tasks, see Kaspersky Security Center help.
