I'm looking to do a migration like that too.

Last I spoke to Kerio support they pointed me to this page:
http://kb.kerio.com/product/kerio-connect/server-configurati on/export-and-migration/transferring-an-installation-of-keri o-connect-to-another-server-or-operating-system-360.html

Connect appears to store almost (if not all) its settings in plain text config files, so that makes it pretty easy to move. They told me the most common problem is that you'll need to go into the files manually and update any paths to point to the new locations. Make sure to watch the slashes and capitalization.

Windows: c:\Program Files\Kerio\MailStor
Linux: /opt/kerio/mailstore

The most painful part will likely be moving the mailstore itself due to its size.

They also mentioned it's a good idea to either use the Connect backup utility or to zip your files before moving them as a straight copy could do some strange things to the file permissions.

Make sure to double check everything, these are just some suggestions as I've yet to do the migration myself.
