Hello, all.

I have a client going from an old Windows 2000 Server install of Kerio Connect, to a new setup of a Windows 2008 Server running a full domain controller. Connect will be installed on a separate Windows machine joined to the domain.

Now, how to shift the already-existing Kerio mail database? Obviously backup and restore, but I do not think the Active Directory will become magically aware of the mail users when I restore to the new box. So, I guess I need to do this:


  1. Backup the mail database from the old server
  2. Install all the software on the new machines, including the Kerio Active Directory Extension on the domain server.
  3. Recreate all users on the domain server, and new Kerio mailboxes will be created on the email server.
  4. Restore each user's mail, one account at a time. Kind of tedious, but there's only 15 users.


Is that more or less right, or is there a better way of doing it? Kerio Connect virgin here, answers appreciated. Smile

This should work:

4. Restore whole message store to new server.
5. In Connect's web administration activate all users in the domain (mapped from AD). You probably need to reconfigure user mapping server hostname as new AD is running on another server.
That's all.

You need to create users in AD first and then activate them in Connect.
