  1. Hi there. I have inherited a situation where there is an Admin Kit (V6.0.1591) in place on an old server (SRV1) which is in being replaced as it is in bit of a mess (the admin kit settings and policies are not correct either). I have disabled everything on there and set up and new Admin Kit install on a new server (V6.0.1591). I have everything setup and ready and now want to move the client machines to point to this new box (SRV2). Is there an easy way to change the admin kit that they look for? Currently I am doing it manually as follows... klmover.exe -address SRV2 any suggestions? (I don't want to backup the old admin kit files and restore to the new as I want to start from fresh)
  2. OK, it looks like I will have to start from scratch. Just looking at the product updates under 'Business Products' there is no mention of 'Kaspersky Anti-Virus' (this only falls under the 'Home User' products). Under there I notice that Version 7 is now available. Is this ready to use in on workstations and with the admin kit? Is there a newer version of the network agent available? (I currently have NetAgent 6.0.1405 MSI)
  3. Hi guys, I hope you can help. I have inherited a situation whereby a server running the admin kit has failed and has subsequently been formatted/reinstalled (The backup recovery from tape was unsuccessful). The server is running Windows Advanced Server 200 SP4 and the Admin Kit version was 6.0.1405 (kasp6.0.1405_adminkiten.exe). The server is ready for the admin kit to back on; BUT, I have no backup file of the configuration (i.e. the policy and structure of the admin kit). I do have access to the tape drive with the original installation of the admin kit: c:\program files\Kaspersky Lab\... Kaspersky Administration Kit Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 for Windows Servers Before I tackle this, what is my best hope of recovering the admin kit structure? To add, I would prefer to install the newest version of the admin kit if at all possible (6.0.1591) Many thanks in advance. Steve
  4. Thanks for the reply. I will install the netagent, then the file server and finally mail security
  5. Hi, we are currently running KAV6 workstations and Fileserver. I have a couple of questions before I install KAV on our Exchange Server (Windows 2000 AS Server which runs Exchange Server 2003). 1, What is the difference between the following two products: Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Microsoft Exchange Version 5.5.1185.0 Kaspersky Security for Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Version 5.5.1354.0 2, I will obviously install the network agent, but do I also need to install Kaspersky Anti-Virus for File Servers as a base? Basically, do the above packages include the AV product or are they add-ons similar to the Admin Kit? Thanks
  6. thanks, but if it is solved on kavs end / server side then I dont understand why I would still hit the problem. My install push has old signatures from the bundle (March 07) and all updating from there is done from the Kav Lab servers; so why if it is fixed does it still download the corrupt update?
  7. Hi, thanks for your reply. The method described there is actually more long winded than the 'solution' I found of replacing the black.lst file from safe mode. However, this means that I have to visit each machine as I can not remote to safe mode (defeats the purpose of a remote install). From that article, KAV recognise that there is not a problem as of the 12th of Aug, I just hope that they can resolve it.
  8. Hi, thanks for the reply. I have been on leave for a couple of days so I havent replied earlier. I have ran through the process you suggested: - deployed from the Admin kit with no one logged in - rebooted once installed - ran an update task from the kit I still get the same error message "AVP.exe - Application Error" "The exception unknown software exception (0xe06d7363) occurred in the application at location (0x7c81eb33)"
  9. Hi guys, I am running Kaspersky AV Workstations MP2 and Admin Kit 6.0.1405. I have successfully deployed > 120 installs but as of Monday/Tuesday this week I have hit an error when updating the signatures. The install works fine and tells me that my signatures dated 050307 are obsolete (this is the date of the bundled definitions for the KAV 3.02.678 MP2 release). For the previous 100 odd installs I then just hit "update now" and it pulls down the latest signatures. However, since Monday, at this point the update now produces a "run time error" mid way though the update. I then see !Warning "File black.lst is missing or corrupted. Please run Updater to fix this problem" If I click on the update link then it just tells me that "Not all components were installed" and I still see the back.lst corrupt error message. To fix this problem I can boot in to safe mode and delete the black.lst file from C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Kaspersky Lab\AVP6\Bases I can then boot back in to windows and run the updater which pulls down the newer black.lst file. Alternately I can also overwrite the black.lst with a copy from another machine (with a created date of 140807 for the black.lst). So, something has recently changed to cause a problem with our installs. I assume that there have been updates to the black.lst file and this has caused a problem when updating from the much older version that I have. The black.lst file that is bundled in my deployment (6.02.678) has a date of 270207 and when I run a signature update, it is either corrupt at that point or becomes corrup from that point (possibly because it cant replace it with a newer version). This only affects new installs. I dont want to have to manually delete this file and waste time booting in to safe mode etc when this is supposed to be a remote installation. Any ideas?? I understand that there is a newer release ( but I have read on here about problems with Dell machines and Network issues on this release so I wish to avoid this. I also know that I could try and push out the updates from the admin kit rather than the KAV Labs but I want to avoid that to reduce network bandwidth (since our Internet connection is faster than our connecting links) and I doubt it would change a thing for this issue.

  10. ok, I figured it out. It turns out that it had old history connected to it. I removed all of the computers in the [+] Network: Domains section and let it rescan which fixed the problem.
  11. I am upgrading from V5 to V6 and I have licenses for the following... 168 Workstations 16 Servers We had about 140 machines with Version 5 on and I have so far upgraded 115 of them to v6 Using V6 of the admin kit I ran a license report "Report of license keys installed on client computers". I pointed the report to check all machines from the root group but the numbers dont seem to match up which is worrying as we are close to our max number of licenses. Clicking on properties on the root of the group shows 142 machines (which I would expect) http://tinyimg.us/i/opt1185539617h.jpg Any ideas?
  12. Excellent, problem fixed. Something so simple too. A million thanks!
  13. can't edit my post so its another one sorry. Ok, the server in question has KAV6 Win Servers and Network Agent V6. I have ran "klnagchk" and it tells me that there is no certificate and hence it can not speak to the admin kit v6 correctly. C:\kav\WinFileServers\Nagent>klnagchk.exe Starting utility 'klnagchk'... Checking command line options...OK Initializing basic libraries...OK Current host is DOMAIN\SVR4 Reading the settings...OK Settings verification...OK Network Agent settings: Administration Server address: 'SVR2' Use SSL connection: 1 Numbers of the Administration server SSL ports: '13000' Numbers of the Administration server ports: '14000' Administration Server certificate: missing Use proxy server: 0 Open UDP port: 1 Numbers of UDP ports: '15000' Synchronization period, min.: 15 Connection timeout, sec.: 30 Send/receive timeout, sec.: 180 Administration Server certificate: missing Looks like this is the reason. How do I apply the correct certificate?
  14. Did you made a backup from your old AdminKit 5 with backup task to get a backup copy of the AdminServer certificate ??? Yes, I created a backup cert during installation. And if yes have you used the backup certificate when installing the AdminKit 6 ?? I cant recall tbh. How can I find this out? I can see all of the workstations and remaining servers which are running V5, so perhaps that means that its using V5? If you have now an old Agent 5 with old certificate your client still searches an AdminKit holding the old certificate!! Remove old agent and install the new one Any advice on how I might do this? As far as I can remember, I simply installed KAV6 Admin kit on to the main server which was running V5. I backed up the cert and installed via default. I cannot remember if this uninstalled the previous admin kit. Incidentally, I removed the old network agent and installed the new one. The admin kit cannot see an AV installed now (which ties in with your cert theory).
