I'm migrating phisical Kerio Connect server to a virtual one.
I have to change network subnet. I would like to configure Kerio to operate on two network interfaces for some time.

In general I have VMWare virtual environment. For the moment I'm testing KC 9.0.4 in VMWare workstation 12.1.1

With one interface everything works fine. When I add another network interface, Kerio shows normal splash screen on console "Kerio connect is running on this computer. To change settings, please poit your browset to: [STATIC IP ADDRESS]"

But it does not responde even on pings on that address. I'm not able to configure second interface (no such option in console menu).

When I remove interface from VM settings and reboot, it works fine.

I believe, that additional interface brings up in background, have no ip address and Kerio tries to run service on that.

Tell me, how to configure IP address on secondary interface and make it work?

Best solution:
- management on one IP address only
- email traffic (for the same domain) on two interfaces.
- sending could be only over one of them.

Regards, Kacper

Thanks to polish Kerio support I've found a way to make it work:

0. Add new hardware in VM
1. Log to linux shell (Alt+F2 to switch console)
2. lspci to check if you see new interface
3. Conifgure interface in /etc/network/interfaces
4. Reboot - both management interfaces visible in Kerio Console but no traffic
5. Basing on MAC addresses I discovered interfaces has swapped - new one is eth0 now! Reconfigured VLANs on VM environment
6. Works like a charm
7. TODO: firewall & tests

Thanks for reporting your solution.

Adds to the knowledge here, so someone else can tap in and find an answer, rather than just the question.
