Dear all,

I'd like to move an existing windows kerio-server to a linux based installation. The technical part was closed successfully, but the license key doesn't work at the linux installation.
I have now 2 questions:
1. What is the way to move an existing key from windows to linux?
2. Can I move back from Linux to windows, if required?

...and my last question: exist there any known disadvantages on a linux based kerio-installation?

Thanks in advance.

1. Your license should work fine. You need to register/activate the license number on the new Linux system as this will update the OS during activation. Perhaps you are trying to import the key file, which won't work because the license number was previously activated on Windows.
2. Yes, you can move Kerio Connect to any supported OS.
3. You might consider opening a different thread for this question. Kerio Connect will function similarly on either platform and aside from installation it requires almost no interaction with the OS, so it's a matter of preference.

BTW, to get a fresh license.key file, visit --> Support --> Register License and walk through the subsequent screens.
