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.

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.

will there be issues with the license expiry? i noticed that some of the machine which i uninstall KAV6 mp4 and install KES8 they get the maximum license life time. in my case they get 90days more. :cb_punk:

Yes, because before, the expiry date of the key had 3 months of grace :) . Now the new keys only have 1 month :( .
