Hi
How does the restore scenario of a big environment look like?
We have a server with around 100 Mailboxes.

Now what happen if a user with a 10 GB Mailbox delete his own inbox?

The restore description looks like we have to stop the kerio Server and start the restore of the specific mailbox.

But whats happen with the mail arrived after deleting his mailbox?
Do we really have to stop the kerio server just to restore a mailbox of a single user?

We had the idea to restore the mailbox to a test kerio installation and export and reinport the mailbox as pst.
Is there a more appropriate way to restore a inbox that there is no service outage for the other custommers?

What is the advice of kerio, how to restore mailboxes?


Regards

You can restore the inbox e-mails from the backup as files. So just copy the e-mails as files (.eml) in the empty inbox of the user. This can be done while Kerio ist still running and new emails are still recieved. Then delete the index file of this user and restart Kerio. So you only have a downtime of a few seconds. After the restart the index file will be recreated and the deleted e-mails will show up again.

Edit: Or you can still use the kmsrecover option with the -f option. See: http://kb.kerio.com/product/kerio-connect/server-configurati on/archiving-and-backup/data-recovery-in-kerio-connect-1142. html

Hi
thanks the restore of the files only worked. It just takes a bit time till the mailbox is indexed again (~5-10 min for 20 GB).

Regards
