yes Smile

Firstly I´ve red this
ttp://kb.kerio.com/product/kerio-connect/server-configuratio n/export-and-migration/transferring-an-installation-of-kerio -connect-to-another-server-or-operating-system-360
easy clear
Than i ´ve red this:
ttp://kb.kerio.com/product/kerio-connect/virtual-appliance-l inux/joining-kerio-connect-running-on-linux-to-open-director y-or-active-directory-308
And this is issue. In current installation of Kerio, we don´t use connection co AD. I create every new user manually and Authentication method is windows Nt.
My question is: IF i use method backup from win and restore to Linux, Will new kerio work?
I have only 2 hours for migration, no time for mistake.
sorry i can´t post links

I wrote the following post to make the migration process as step-by-step and quick as possible. I think the process is still the most efficient:

I also moved to Linux:

The move to Ubuntu running on EC2 has been extremely successful. Although it is certainly not the cheapest solution, I am happy with the move.

According to Will's perfect step by step (Kudos for that, Will), 2 hours could be.....challenging

Thanks Carsten!

I agree that 2 hours of downtime is possible depending on the size of the mail store and performance of the system.

I strongly recommend doing a test run. Leave the current mail server running by skipping steps 3 and 5. You can then time how long it takes, test the results, and make sure the process works for you.

The primary drivers are the size of your mailstore, and your tolerance for downtime. After a certain mail store size, the documented Kerio method for moving the mail server is impractical.

Thanks for advise.
I did test run and it took less than hour.
I installed fresh kerio and did restore, everything was fine, but i didn´t run server because of original server.
If i do new test run in separate network without internet, i still can´t check important things like connectivity to domain and creating new profile.
For testing i use virtualbox with nat ntwork
