Hello,
I would like to use kmsrecover to restore a single users mailbox. I want to make sure it will not overwrite the current mail store or users inbox. When using kmsrecover, does it automatically overwrite the current stores?

The current mail stores:
/usr/local/kerio/mailserver/store

The current backups:
/usr/local/kerio/mailserver/backup

I have created a folder on the desktop called TMP07. I want to restore the user "Scotts" mailbox to this folder. I was going to use the following command.

./kmsrecover -d mydomain.com -u scott -s ~/desktop/TMP07/ /usr/local/kerio/mailserver/store/backup/F20150607T06009Z.zi p

I got the warning that "Running kmsrecover will modifiy the Kerio Connect store directory". Is this correct? Will it overwrite or somehow restore to the current mail stores and delete what is current? If so, how do I recover a users complete inbox from backups without overwriting the current files?

Thanks for you time,
KC

Hello KC,


Detailed information for kmsrecover can be found here:

Basically what you need is described under "Recovery of a single user's mailbox"



Your command looks right you are using the switch -s followed by the temp folder ~/desktop/TMP07/, the entire mailbox and its content will be saved out of the Kerio Connect's store in folder ~/desktop/TMP07/

If you run kmsrecover without -s switch it would overwrite the default store.



I hope it helps.



All the best,


Jonas

Thank you for your response Jonas. Yes, I read those articles, but they did not mention the warning message that appears when you try to use the command. I just needed reassurance that using the recovery command WOULD NOT overwrite the current mail stores. It's good to know that is what the s switch is for.

Thanks again, have a great day!

Hello KC,

Your more than welcome.

I see what you mean, that message is there by default, as long as you use the correct syntax it should not matter.


Have a great day you too Smile


All the best,

Jonas
