To install an update of the system on the Control node:

  1. Exclude the Control node from traffic processing and distribute the load to other cluster nodes.

    If restarting the node is necessary for installing the update package, wait until the restart is completed.

  8. Make sure the update is successfully installed:
    1. Sign in to the web interface of the Control node. Make sure the status of the updated node has changed to Synchronized.
    2. Sign in to the updated node over SSH and run the following command:

      cat /etc/redhat-release

      The output of the command must be as follows:

      CentOS Linux release 7.9.2009 (Core)

    3. Run the following command:

      tail /var/log/kaspersky/kwts/patch.log
