Hello, we've been a Kerio Connect customer since 2009 and our current setup is running on Windows Server 2008 Std x64 (Not R2)

Kerio Connect Beta does not support this operating system, although it is 64bit.

Does this mean that future versions of Kerio Connect will no longer be available for it, effectively making our server operating systems EOL?

Might be a bug, but I guess 2008 will be EOL. 2008 R2 is based on Windows 7 and the support will be down at a near point in the future.

Anyway, an upgrade wouldn't be a bad idea if you wait for the windows 10 server. It doesn't need more resources (or even less) and is technically way better then 2008. And the CAL's aren't that expensive.

Not to mention you can build a virtualized Environment with disaster / failover recovery for cheap.

Std version will not support the 64bit Kerio, only R2 will run it.

Is the 32bit Kerio not installing on it?

32bit version 8.5.2 is running fine currently on WinServer 2008 std x64.

Version 9 when it comes out of Beta won't run on it due to announcement that ends 32bit support & 64bit was never made available for 2008 std x64.

I appreciate EOL would come on the OS eventually but I don't agree on Kerio pulling the plug on it before vendors support has ended.

"Won't run" is too strong statement. It is not officially supported. Which actually means that we haven't tested yet these old systems with 64-bit version of Kerio Connect. It will run there if you upgrade to Kerio Connect 9. We just don't want to guide new users to use these old systems.

Ok if words are too strong perhaps this screen dump is a more accurate description.

As a loyal Kerio Control & Connect customer for many years, this is disappointing,

Ok. My bad I thought it is about 2012 Server. Sorry for confusion. You're right. The installer does not allow this.

We've updated our plans and for existing customers there will be an option to update their 32-bit installations. New installations will be 64-bit only. Hope this helps.

Does this mean 64 bit Kerio will run on Windows 2008 x64 Std?

We do not plan to extend the list of supported 64-bit systems beyond Windows Server 2008 R2. We look more into the future. It means there will be more time for customers with 32-bit systems to plan an upgrade.

Hello,

in version 9.1 of Kerio Connect, there will be no more support x86. Because Microsoft Windows 2008 (x64) Server supported until 2017, a customer wants to upgrade to Windows 2016 until the end of the year. Must I stay with Kerio Connect 9.0.x, or will be there a patch to install the 64 bit version?

Greetings

Hi Jens,
Support for older x64 systems is not our priority now and we do not plan any patch. Besides staying with 9.0.x version until October (when Microsoft could release Windows 2016) there is also an option to run Kerio Connect in Hyper-V image (either with Linux or Windows 64-bit). This can also make migration to new Windows Server 2016 much easier - you just move the virtual machine to new server.

Hi Pavel,

no problem. I will discuss with the client whether we stay in the transitional period in version 9.0.x, or use a virtual machine for the few months.
