Kerio Connect Console application is intended only for Kerio Connect Virtual Appliance deployment. You can either install clean Debian (this guide will help: http://kb.kerio.com/1627) or deploy Kerio Connect VA (also based on Debian).

OK. Sad Mad Crying or Very Sad Evil or Very Mad

Is there a way to modify the Kerio Connect VA disk before we deploy it?
I deploy the 8.4.0 version once, added a second disk(2TB) for emails, archive & backup.
but I could not update the OS, the space was very limited, I could update Kerio & the console, but not the OS.

Thanks.

It's hard to say you don't know, isn't it?

Thanks.

It's easier to Google it - VMware KB - Increasing the size of a disk partition

The process will be similar for other hypervisors.
