I was running a test to move our KMS server from Windows 2000 to Fedora Core 4. When I tried to install the license, I get a "License import failed, License is not for this operating system" message. I didnt know the license was OS specific???

Is there a way to change this or am I stuck with the original OS?

The encryption format in the key file is OS-specific.

Go to https://secure.kerio.com/reg and go through the registration process. Choose 'Linux' when you have the option to select the OS. The new key file you download will then work properly on Linux.

Cheers,
Joshua Thomas

I have some related questions:

1.) Is it possible to go from Windows to Linux with a KMS server using Active Directory integration?

2.) Is this process as simple as roughly following Kerio Support KB #2?

3.) Will Kerio support this if something goes wrong during the migration and I need assistance?

> 1.) Is it possible to go from Windows to Linux with a KMS server using Active Directory integration?

I'm not sure what you mean by "go to". Do you mean, "is it possible to change my platform from Windows with AD to Linux with AD?" If so, the answer is yes. However, your Linux machine must be part of the Active Directory domain. This is a difficult task for those unfamilar with it.

> 2.) Is this process as simple as roughly following Kerio Support KB #2?

Yes, for moving configration and data to a Linux machine. You must also generate a new license. And finally, you must join the machine to the domain as mentioned above.

> 3.) Will Kerio support this if something goes wrong during the migration and I need assistance?

Yes, if you are using a supported version of Linux and the most current version of the mailserver (6.1.0-patch6).

We will not help you join your Linux install to your domain. SAMBA and the operating system related configurations have changed frequently enough that we have trouble tracking it ourselves.

I really recommend against this setup, unless you are an experienced Linux administrator.

Even though I'm currently a Windows admin, I was born and raised on *NIX and have messed with Samba and winbind and gotten it to work in the past. Dunno how much I'd trust it in a production environment, but its been at least 6 months since I've played with it, so I should try it again.

Thanks again!
