Hi there,

we currently installed KWF 6.0 (I know it is old version, and still use, because of many reasons).

anyway, I plan to upgrade our server, completely new. how to migrate (copy all settings and license info) from old server to another? so I don't need to re-configure and re-setup from the beginning? thanks before

you can backup *.cfg files and replace them on new version... but i will not suggest that because your version is old...
The bes will be:
Beckup cfg file
then on new fresh installation you open cfg file and manually add (in xml file format), address group, new services, rules... etc...

Question cannot be stupid, but some of the answers can.

On a windows system just copy the map from the old system to the new system. After copy just install Winroute again on the new system, it will use the settings what you have copied.
But why still running on Winroute. No valid license anymore or are you running a hacked version?

I'm not familiar with winroute, but my boss ask me to use same "technology" which already used until now, so I only need to buy new cpu and then "copy-paste" that technology from old server to the new one.

in the matter of that, I'm sorry if I don't understand "the thing" that you've called "map". which one I need to copy? because I can't find folder "map" in directory KERIO.

about why I (we) still running on winroute, because my boss ask to do (won't buy / spend another money, just use current). I don't know whether KWF can be installed on different computer or not, if we do migration. or the license only valid for one system (can't be migrated?).
anyway, how to check the license still valid or not? thanks before

OH, i will sound rude now...
How did you get that job if you don't know what *.cfg means?!

Ok any way:
Install your NEW pc (server) when you make stable system,
Same ip's as on OLD server. Install Winroute on (NEW server).

!!Licence winroute (NEW server).
Stop winroute on (NEW server)
Copy all *.cfg files from
main winroute directory (ROOT) //OLD SERVER
to --> (NEW server) winroute folder (ROOT)
Start winroute on (NEW server)

You will have to reconfigure only (NEW server) NIC properties and in traffic rules replace (OLD nic names with new one, if needed)

If you did not understand that call Kerio support.

Hi Goran,

thanks for your clearly description. Now I understand what I need to do.

Anyway, how I got this job, cause my boss asked me to do this job, based on my hobby with computer. I know what is *.cfg means Very Happy ,what I didn't know is how to migrate to the new system. I thought it would not just as simple as "Copy-paste" the cfg files Embarassed

thanks all for the support.

@Goran,

I thought so that you had a bad morning. It wasn't you writing. Normally you aren't like that.

@no_name
What I meant with "map" is the same as directory. But windows calls a directory a map now this days.
But the solution given by Goran is the same idea. Only I copy always the entire map (directory) because i had some minor problems in the past.
