I need to move my Kerio server from our office machine to another server in a hosted data center. I want to move all the existing mail data to the new server.

Is there anything I need to do more complicated than installing Kerio on the new server and then moving the whole Kerio data folder? Any tips or tricks?

  • Install KMS on the new machine (make sure you install exactly the same KMS version)
  • Copy the complete store directory
  • Copy the .cfg files

Basicly, that's it!

As long as you delete nothing on the old machine, you can try all you like without losing data :)

PS: look into the manual/knowledge base, there are article about this.

I used the backup / kmsrestore functions to try a dry run, and it seemed to work great. However, when I connected to the new server with the Admin client, I got a dialog that all services were stopped until I installed my license key file. Unfortunately, there seemed to be no way to dismiss the dialog to install the license key file - clicking on it or hitting enter or return did nothing, and I had to force-quit the Admin application. Mac OS X 10.3.9 / KMS 6.1.0p8.

Is there some trick to getting the license key in?

Copy your license.key file to /license under your regular KMS install directory.

The admin console behavior is strange, I have not heard of anything like it.
