I have some domains with users on a Kerio Connect version 8.0.1 build 1028 which runs on Centos 5.7. I also have a newer Kerio Connect server running the latest 9.1 version.
What i would like to do is move some domains with their users and mailstores to the newer server. What would be the best way to accomplish this?
Thanks for any advice..

There's a couple ways to do this.
If you don't necessarily need to keep user's contact's an calendars, using IMAPSYNC will be the best way to go about it, and is the easiest to understand, set up and execute, It also has the advantage that you can space the migration over several days if the dataset being moved is very large.
Another method involves creating the domains to be transferred on the new server, then shutting down both servers and using your favorite utility to move the files specific to those domains from the old server to the new server. mailserver.cfg and users.cfg also need to be copied, and then hand edited.
A third choice would be to use the built-in backup process on the old server, then use KMSRecover to restore the data to the new server. (ref: http://kb.kerio.com/360) Bring up the new server and remove the domain(s) that are staying on the old server.
I've done the first two, but not the third.
