Hello all,

I am planning to install Kerio Connect at one of the sites I support. I have relatively recent server hardware running Windows 2000 Server and Exchange 2000 (don't ask - it was put in place by my predecessor). What I want to do is upgrade the OS and replace Exchange with Kerio on that box, using the migration tool. What do you think the best way to accomplish this is? Is there any way that doesn't involve temporarily setting up Kerio on another box?

Thanks,
Adam

It's possible to install Connect on the same machine as Exchange, you just need to solve problem with conflicting ports. Connect requires for migration ports 44337 (no conflict) and 143 (IMAP), other services can be stopped. KEMT doesn't use IMAP to access Exchange, so you can stop this service there.
Rememeber that KEMT cannot be installed on the same machine as Exchange.
For details see http://kb.kerio.com/product/kerio-connect/server-configurati on/export-and-migration/kerio-exchange-migration-tool-1469.h tml

Thanks for the reply.

The problem I see is operating systems. Exchange 2000 isn't supported on anything newer than Windows 2000 Server. Will I be able to install Connect on 2000 Server? I would be upgrading the server OS after the migration is complete.

No. Kerio Connect must be installed on Windows XP and newer. See http://www.kerio.com/connect/requirements
