Hi,

We have one server with several domains and users.
How can we move just one domain and it's users to another server?

What's the best way to do it?
Backup on 1st and restore just the domain on the 2nd? Will it work?

That should work. You might have to restore everything than remove what you don't need.

What version of Kerio are you running?

So we can't just move a domain and it's accounts?
We have to move all the accounts on server and then delete the other accounts?

This way we can't migrate domains between servers right? We will have to migrate to new servers and delete the other info?

I'd imagine you'd be able to simply move a single domain to a new server.

http://support.kerio.com/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=v iewarticle&kbarticleid=257

May be helpful.

It might be simpler to basically copy the Kerio configuration from server 1 onto server 2, removing the unnecessary domains after the fact; but you may be able to get away with simply copying what you need, ignoring what you don't, onto the new server.

If drive space and time aren't an issue I'd travel the path of least resistance.

I just did a split and had to copy mailserver.cfg & users.cfg over from the old server, delete the domains/users/groups/aliases that I didn't need or want.

I tried installing, creating matching accounts and pointing the store directory to the new location, but got no mail folders with that approach.

Cheers,
Jon

I'm migrating a customers Exchange-server to a shared Kerio server in a couple of days and this is how I plan to do it:

Set up a Kerio Connect server on the customers LAN using a trial license, migrate using Exchange Migration Tool (this is to avoid the internet as a bottle neck).

Make changes to the accounts as necessary (usernames that need to conform to a standard etc).

Do a backup from the temporary server.

To a restore of the backups to the production server using:

kmsrecover -d customerdomain.com -s /Path/to/MailStore -m mail /Path/to/FullBackupFromOldServer.zip

kmsrecover -d customerdomain.com -s /Path/to/MailStore -m public /Path/to/FullBackupFromOldServer.zip

This is the recommendation I got from Kerio customer support.


A pity that this can't be done without restarting the target server...

Did this ever work. I'm looking for the same solution.
