Hello community, is it correct, that when changing a (Mac Mini's) HD with Kerio Connect, that Kerio Deamon doesn't start up on the restored new drive? We then putted back the old HD for having a working mailserver meanwhile ...

Does Kerio Check HD-IDs for it's license  and one should reinstall Kerio again and restore using Kerio's recovery feature before launching Kerio on the new systemdrive?

Thanks for some tipps.

It is recommended to use the Kerio KMSrecover tool to restore data to a new drive. Using time machine should work for restoring the drive though and I am surprised that Kerio would not start. The best thing you can do to troubleshoot the time machine restored drive is check the mailserver.cfg and make sure the pathways to the store directory are still the same and make sure the domain information is still present in the mailserver.cfg file as well.

However I suggest using the Kerio backups as this restores not only the store directory but it restores your licence key, ssl cert and store folder. Plus this is the best way for the data to be correctly restored. If you are not very sure of kmsrecover then follow this kb article:

This has examples of how to use KMSRecover.

All the best,
