I am rather familiar with a Kerio Connect I inherited via a new client about 2-3 years ago. It's updated to 8.2.

I've been looking into deploying another Kerio Connect and want to better understand the backup and restore features, especially for individual users. I've been testing with an evaluation copy.

My primary question is whether it is possible to restore individual calendars, calendar events, address books and address book entries for individual users. I am comfortable with either the GUI or the command line.

I was working with the "Recover Deleted Items" feature, but that seems to be only for items that have been automatically cleaned out. Is that correct?

I've been through a full kmsrecover so I'm already familiar with that. Oh do I want to forget that day!Smile

Thank you.

Hello,

Basically yes you can recover individual calendar folders and/or contact folders. You would need to use KMSrecover with some extra options. Take a look at these 2 KB articles for a little more detail:

http://kb.kerio.com/1142
http://kb.kerio.com/1141

The one thing to keep in mind is that if the folder you want to restore is a sub-folder then you have to restore the parent folder as well. What we normally suggest in this scenario is to restore the parent folder to a different location and then you can copy the sub-folder into the users folder in the server.

I hope this helps you out.

All the best,
Vicky

On major drawback with KMSRecover - you have to shutdown server during the restore process.

Hi Piero,

That is correct you do have to stop Kerio Connect in order to run kmsrecover. However what I have had some customers do in the past is install Kerio Connect on a spare machine and run kmsrecover on another machine and that way the primary mailserver stays up and you can recover the data on a different machine without having downtime.

I hope that helps,
Vicky
