I currently have backup running, which basically puts a copy of each email in a backup folder by date. How do I make use of this if my system crashes and I am able to save this backup folder?

I think the KMS Backup function is more for archiving of messages.

If you want to just make backups for later restoration of user mailboxes, you should use NTBACKUP (on Windows) or tar (in UNIX) and back up the entire KMS program folder.

Hence, if you have Kerio installed in C:\Program Files\Kerio\MailServer\, you'd backup that directory.

Kerio MailServer 6.7.1 w/AD
Windows Server 2003 SP 1
Dell PowerEdge 2850 (Dual Xeon 3.2ghz and 2 GB RAM)
~1300 users
~1000+ concurrent IMAPS connections
iPhone users
Outlook 2007 KOFF users

Version 6.0 of KMS will have an option to make a backup copy of the Store directory.

that would be cool. backing up the entire folder isnt really good for live backups :( like if you did it every night, then you still lose one day of emails...and I dont think you do ntbackup or tar when the mailboxes are open?

nice to know its in the works tho.

I guess I should clarify some things here. NTBACKUP.EXE for Windows 2003 supports the backing up of open files, using the Volume Shadow Services built into Windows 2003. You can even run these during the day as they don't usually eat up a lot of CPU.

With Windows 2000 and prior, and other OSes, you'll likely need to stop the KMS server process, backup, and restart it.

I should have been more thorough in my explanation.

ntbackup on 2003 working on open files.

Definitely good info! thanks! Does this mean you run kerio on 2003 as well? Do you know of any additional setting that needs to be done vs kerio on w2k?
