I've used kmsrecover to restore on a new server...process went smoothly. However I'm concerned about turning Kerio on and knocking out my live server due to a license conflict. Is this even a problem? If so, should I disconnect it from the network, login locally and unregister somehow to get it into a trial mode? I'd just like to do some testing and benchmarking before deploying the new server.

Thanks

The problem is that if you use the trial license, you will only be able to see messages that came in after the trial license was generated (The new software image was installed).

My experience is that 2 servers can use the same license for a short period without any trouble.

Thanks for the reply. What would you say is a "short period"? Would be nice to have some specifics from Kerio.

I don't know if there's a hard limit, but I had mine running in parallel for about 2 weeks.
