I'm using kmsrecover to move to a new machine as per these instructions:

http://kb.kerio.com/product/kerio-connect/server-configurati on/export-and-migration/how-do-i-move-kerio-connect-from-one -machine-to-another-or-change-operating-systems-360.html

The backup I use will include an incremental backup.

Will the recovered setup be an exact match and the users will see exactly what they saw when the old server was shut down?

In particular, does the restored data somehow know to delete messages that were in the original full backup?

Thanks,

Will Mayall

Yes it will as long you enter the folder (where the backup .zip files have been copied) as the last argument of the kmsrecover command.

Sorry I'm not quite sure what you mean here, please advise.

Here is another KB article which can help with kmsrecover instructions:

All the best,

As an example, let's say a user has 10 messages in a folder. A full backup runs and contains those 10 messages. The user deletes 5 of those messages and differential backup runs.

The files for the full backup clearly contain all 10 messages since the full backup does not get modified after creation. Does the differential file then contain information informing kmsrecover to not recover the 5 deleted messages so that the folder is correct?

I assume that the answer is yes since kmsrecover would not be very useful. Just double-checking.

Thanks,

Hi Will,

Ok I got it. And yes that is the way KMS works.

When you specify the folder path as the last argument it will recover the most up-to-date backup.

It recovers older backups only if you specify the zip file name as the last argument of the kmsrecover command.


All the best,

Jonas
