Hi guys! I had this problem before. After a big storm one nic from my server get damaged (no link). First time this happened to me was the windows version of Kerio Control, I found random gy with a nice guide on how to replace the nic hardware ID from kerio configuration to keep the traffic rules after replacing the broken nic.

Now, I'm on kerio control linux, I replaced the NIC an now its a new nic on kerio. No way to "right click and replace board with" or something like this

This specific nic had like 20 rules that I replace by hand (I cant wat for a solution) but I really want to know if this happen in the future. And for example, if my entire server had a physical problem and I replace it with another one, If I restore the configuration backup I will be in the same problem (making do backups a useless tool).

Thanks for the time.

The backup import process allows you to associate old interfaces with new ones. Refer to the "Import configuration" section in KB 1308 http://kb.kerio.com/1308

I have a problem with this. Yes, the import did import all my rules and custom settings. BUT, none of my IP addresses from the ISP came in. I am replacing a control file and my customer has 3 ISP's, so luckily I can screenshot all of that, but it sure would be nice if I didnt have to! Smile

The interfaces are shown in the import wizard, and the original IPs as well, but after restore, the control box still has the default 10.10.10.1 for the LAN and none of the ISP addresses. Am I doing something wrong?
