I am running on OSX and My Kerio mailstore is on a 4 TB Pegaus2 RAID.

I need to move the mailstore to a significantly larger RAID.

Is there a step-by-step for this?

Google search into the form seems to be broken.

Use RSync or Carbon Copy Cloner.

-Connect/format/configure the new storage.

-Use Carbon Copy Cloner to clone it over. This can run while the mail server is still operating.

-Once complete, pick an off-time for the final swap over and notify users of potential downtime. Stop kerio service. Do another clone via CCC (it will only copy the changed files... should be fast).

-Remove the old storage, name the new one appropriately, start kerio and verify the path to the store is correct.

Semi-related... strongly recommend your storage be in RAID 10 for speed!

Just wanted to circle back to link to a support doc that I don't thnk was available earlier:

https://manuals.gfi.com/en/kerio/connect/content/server-conf iguration/data-store/configuring-data-store-in-kerio-connect -1156.html

Setting the path to the data store directory

You configure the path to the data store during the installation process.

To change the data store folder later:

Create a new folder for the data store. Do not use diacritics and make sure there is enough free space for the data store.
The folder must be on a local disk. If you're using a virtual machine, define the disk as local.
In the Kerio Connect administration interface, go to Configuration > Advanced Options > Store Directory.
Select the new folder in the new location. Do not use a UNC path. Click Apply.
Stop Kerio Connect.
Copy all files from the old store directory to the new directory.
Run Kerio Connect.
