How to update virus database for KasperSky

 Let me now show you how to implement that.


1.  Make sure you have already KasperSky installed in the server

Before creating a custom trigger action, you need to have Kaspersky anti-virus software installed in the server where JSCAPE MFT Server is running.

2.  Create a Trigger for KasperSky Virus Update

Login into admin console of JSCAPE MFT Server > Triggers and Click Add to create a Trigger

Give the trigger a Name and then select the Current Time event type from the drop-down list.



Click Next to Step 2 where a condition can be set to execute the trigger.

Below screen shows a condition that the trigger should execute at 22 Hours 30 minute . Set the condition as Hour =22 AND Minute 30 ( KasperSky Virus Database will be updated every day at 22 hours 30 minutes )

Once the condition is set Click Next to proceed



The step 3 asks to add an action, Add the action "Kasper Sky Update Virus Definitions" from drop down list. If the action not found read the build instructions (Source code and build instructions) .

Add the action and Click OK to proceed



The Parameters for the action "Kasper Sky Update Virus Definitions" are ;

  • Location 
  • Arguments


As the name indicates, Location is the path where "kesl-control" process is located. Mention the argument to be as "--update-application" . 

Click OK to save the settings 



 That's it. Now you know how to create a trigger to update the Kasper Sky Virus Database.
