My predecessor built our Kerio environment on a Windows 2003 server (a multipurpose fileserver, which I will need to retire soon). I want to migrate to the latest Kerio Control Appliance version (8.4.2) on a virtual machine. I have built out a test device to see what's different and it's interface is surprisingly different. If what I am reading is correct, I should be able to port the configuration file directly from the Windows box and copy in the old mail to the message store. I don't however see anything that clearly states that this is the correct (best practice) path for this specific type of port. My question is should I upgrade the server first to the current Windows version? Or do I port to an older version of the appliance? Can I just directly upgrade, straight away, with no intermediate steps? Any tips would be appreciated.

First thing to clarify - you are referencing migrating from CONNECT to CONTROL - 2 distinctly different products - as you refer to mail store further down your post I assume this is an error?

I only have experience with Control but we have migraed a Windows 7.4.2 to a software appliance v8 by the export and import of the configuration file. You will need to make changes to the interfaces and yes there are user interface changes to get your head around but nothing too major.

OK, color me stupid. I thought I had read somewhere that Control was the new name for Connect. That explains why the interface is so completely different. Never mind...
