Kaspersky Security for Virtualization 6.0 Light Agent

Configuring rules for moving virtual machines to administration groups

To manage the operation of Kaspersky Security solution components via Kaspersky Security Center, you need to place devices with installed Kaspersky Security components (SVMs and protected virtual machines) into administration groups.

An administration group is a set of virtual machines combined according to some criterion for the purpose of controlling the virtual machines in the group as a unified whole.

Before starting installation of the Kaspersky Security solution, you can create administration groups in Kaspersky Security Center for the SVMs and virtual machines with Light Agents, and configure rules to automatically move managed devices to these administration groups.

If rules for moving devices to administration groups are not configured, after installing the solution components, Kaspersky Security Center places devices with installed Kaspersky Security components detected on the network in the Unassigned devices list. In this case, you need to manually move SVMs and virtual machines with Light Agents into administration groups.

You can configure the rules for moving virtual machines to administration groups using the Kaspersky Security Center Administration Console or using Kaspersky Security Center Web Console (for more details, see the Kaspersky Security Center Help).

You can use tags when creating rules for moving SVMs and virtual machines with Light Agents to administration groups. SVMs and protected virtual machines on which Kaspersky Security Center Network Agent is installed automatically relay information about tags to Kaspersky Security Center.
