13 December 2023

At this step, create a password for the klconfig user account (configuration password) and a password for the root user account on SVMs. The configuration password is required to change SVM settings. The root account is used for accessing the operating system on SVMs and for accessing SVM trace files.

Enter a password for each user account in the Password and Confirm password fields.

The passwords should be up to 60 characters long. You can use only letters of the Latin alphabet (uppercase and lowercase letters), numerals, and the following special characters: ! # $ % & ' ( ) * " + , - . / \ : ; < = > _ ? @ [ ] ^ ` { | } ~. For security purposes, you are advised to set passwords that are at least 8 characters long and use at least three of the four categories of characters: lowercase letters, uppercase letters, numerals, and special characters.

To prevent unauthorized access to an SVM after SVM deployment, it is recommended to change the configuration password regularly. You can change the configuration password by using the Kaspersky Security reconfiguration procedure.

Proceed to the next step of the wizard.
