I am about to move an existing Kerio Connect version 7.3 to a new computer. I would like to install the latest version 8 on the new server. Can I simply install 8 on the new server and then restore a full backup made on the old 7.3, as outlined in the "how-to move" document: http://kb.kerio.com/article.php?id=360 using kmsrecover command?

I would upgrade the older server first, then migrate. That will ensure any new features in the mail store or config files are there prior to the KMSRecover.

The old server is just that...old, and pushing its limits on resources. I'd rather not push my luck or it with an upgrade. Maybe the old one would upgrade OK. Would first installing the same 7.3 on the new one, then restore, then upgrade the new one work as well?

That would be my second choice -- install 7.x on new, migrate, upgrade

i second BudDurland. If you can't upgrade and then migrate, then migrate with same version and then upgrade.

I switched from 7.1.2 centos based to 8.0 Win Server 2008 R2. First installed the 7.1.2 version on the new win platform, then restored the database and THEN upgraded to the latest version.
