We want to put a G5 server to rest and consolidate to one server. I have found the info on doing this migration through command line (Console: Kerio MailServer Recovery Tool) but have had issues with "volume not found" issues when using command line. I have tried so many times, even recovering from a full backup. At wits end and wish Kerio would provide a transfer or migration tool (GUI) Kerio to Kerio. There has got to be a better way.

Use rsync. It's a piece of cake. Here's the command to run on the old server to migrate KMS:

rsync -avz -e ssh --delete /usr/local/kerio/mailserver root<_a.t_>destinationserver:/usr/local/kerio

rsync is the way to go - i actually have a backup of a mail server that rsyncs every 4 hours to an offsite server

i think the last time i had to restore something from a kerio backup it was such an annoyance (using incrementals at the time) to do that i soon decided that a straight rsync off at regular intervals to keep the comparitive load down and balanced and then doing snapshot style backups of the rsynced volume on a nightly basis(offsite)

i still run kerio backups locally (full ones though - and i wish kerio would allow not having the 2gb file split to make my backup directory look a little cleaner Razz)

mhegge,
We recently migrated a clients server from ppc to intel and found that we needed to load the spam engine from another intel server as the ppc engine migrated over was incompatible.

Good luck!

I am not very skilled at command line and require some more definition to your rsync formula

the commands i used were

rsync --human-readable --stats --recursive --update --delete --whole-file --force -e ssh /opt/kerio/mailserver/*.cfg* <TARGET>

###Sync the Kerio license files
rsync --human-readable --stats --recursive --update --delete --whole-file --force -e ssh /opt/kerio/mailserver/license/* <TARGET>

###Sync the Kerio mailserver store (all the messages)
rsync --compress --human-readable --stats --recursive --update --delete --whole-file --force -e ssh /opt/kerio/mailserver/store/ <TARGET>


these commands assume its a linux box to start with

and also some of the arguments are for using an ssh connection to the <Target> so the target address would be something like username<_a.t_>server.com/full/path/to/location

when i get some time i will fill this out a bit more

LINUX?

10.5.8 server to a 10.5.8 server

I need more information. Not a savy command line user.

Sorry as I am not very good at unix commands. Plus, how to connect the two servers to do the rsync?

Open Terminal and type that command in except put YOUR server info in.

What is <_a.t._>

Yes, you need to be logged in as root, the <_a.t_> is like the symbol in email addresses. You won't see it posted here on the forum to prevent harvesting.
