Hello,

It's easy :

1) Update your KES 8 package with last hotfixes (right-clic -> Properties -> Update database)

2) Create a task to uninstall KAV 6 on target computers (this is important, do not skip it).

3) Create a task to install KES 8 on target computers. Link it to the first one (planning -> "Launch when task X is finished")

4) Start task in 2) . I suggest you target a small amount of computers each time (10-15) to not overburdened your network. Be sure to do it outside of working hours as you may expect 2-3 reboot until completion for both tasks.

Just a comment on Step 2:

http://support.kaspersky.com/kes8wks/install?qid=208285013 - quote:
"You can install Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Windows on top of Kaspersky Anti-Virus version 6.0.3.x and 6.0.4.x. License and settings will be inherited by the new version. "

Any reason why upgrading rather than reinstalling is not a good idea?

Hi,
No need to uninstall the old version of kaspersky 6.0.x. just create a task to install the KES 8 on targeted computer that will be upgrade your existing KAV 6.0.x into KES 8.

To avoid possible problems it is better to uninstall previous version first and reboot.

Hi All,
I already upgrade my Admin kit 8 into KSC9 and KAV 6.0 into KES 8.0 on 135 machine, During update no major issue faced.
First I update my Admin kit 8 into KSC 9. then I installed network agent 9.2.69 from KSC 9 on all my client machine after installing the Network Agent I upgrade my KAV 6.0 into KES 8 through the remote install Application task.
3-4 machine connectivity issue occur but after using the command "KLmover.exe" solve the issue.

Yes, upgrade is possible but the recomendation always is (if is possible) uninstall previous version, install the new version, less problems.

Regards

Yes, because before, the expiry date of the key had 3 months of grace smile.gif . Now the new keys only have 1 month sad.gif .
