Overnight a Mac OS X Server 18.8.5 OS got hosed and would not boot.
So I installed a new drive and restored from a Time Machine backup.
I had Time Machine configured to skip the Kerio data folder - /Volumes/Data/Kerio.
Kerio Connect was backing up to an external RAID.
I have the original boot drive installed and accessible.
My question is what would be the best way to proceed:
1. Copy the contents of /Volumes/Data/Kerio from the original boot drive to the new.
2. Do a full KMS restore.
Before you get started, be aware that if you have had the retired machine up and running (i.e. accepting mail), you need a different game plan. The restore options available are destructive.
If you have access to the original content of the mail store folder(/Volumes/Data/Kerio ?) your best bet is likey to stop the Kerio mail services, then just copy the files from Hither to Yon you may have to rebuild some user folder indexes, but I would expect minimal trouble. If all you have is the Kerio created backup, then use the documents restore procedures.
