After installing the package with dpkg -i kerio takes ages (!) to release the command prompt while eating up 100% CPU (4 cores).
While in older installations (up to 8.1.3), the following services were started:
/opt/kerio/mailserver/plugins/avserver/./avserver 45 48
/opt/kerio/mailserver/plugins/spamserver/spamserver 41 49
/opt/kerio/mailserver/plugins/spamserver/spamserver 41 51
javaservices/jre/bin/java -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -Xmx128m -XX:E
/bin/bash /opt/kerio/mailserver/kerio-connect-watchdog start /var/run/km
In 8.2 only /opt/kerio/mailserver/mailserver /opt/kerio/mailserver is started. In addition, a netstat -anr doesn't show any ports (i.e. 4040, 80, 443, etc.) being up (no ports from Kerio at all).
A /etc/init.d/kerio stop seems to be working at first but further inspection shows that the process has to be killed with -9 in order to really stop.
Installation is on a debian 6.0.8, 64bit, the mail database is ~200gb in size.
During the whole process not a single line is written to the kerio logfile - the system itself does not show any anomalies whatsoever (no log entries, etc. in /var/log).
Finally, we had to downgrade to 8.1.3 - and it's running like a charm.
I think the whole process may be because of a conversion running in the background - but this is pure speculation as the release notes do not state anything alike.
It would, however, be cool if there would be a hint on what's going on. Downtimes normally have to be scheduled - We simply can't stop the mailserver for an unknown amount of time (SaaS).
