I’ve recently reinstalled the Kaspersky Administration Kit but after the installation the console wasn’t able to connect. Soon I figured out that this was caused by the service of the admin kit that wasn’t running. I tried starting the service manually, but after a refresh the service had stopped again. The event viewer didn’t show any problems and there were no mentionable log files that showed what was going on.
As I installed the admin kit on a domain controller, I wasn’t able to add the service account to the local administrators group. After adding the service account to the domain administrators group the service started as normal.
I’m still looking into how to make it work without adding it to the domain admins group. If you have any ideas, please let me know in a comment!
