Hey hey,

I've been evaluating KMS and am impressed, so I've moved a batch of users onto the system. We are about to purchase a license for the software as our evaluation version is about to expire, but we won't have the hardware that KMS will ultimately run on for a few more weeks.

Is there a somewhat easy way to migrate an installation from one machine to another? KMS is currently installed on an eMac, and it will be migrated to either an Xserve or a Mac Pro running OSX Server. I've read about how to move the mail store, but can the license key be moved to a new machine?

Thanks,

Gabe

Install demo version of KMS on xserver. Stop mailserver process.

Login as root user on emac and copy /usr/local/kerio/* to /usr/local/ on your xserve (replaces demo install). Start mailserver. That's it.

Nice procedure, but it does not work.

My Admin account password is hashed on one testmachine as SHA and on the new testserver it is XOR.

Whatever I do, copy/paste/edit username, it won't login into the Adminpanel after moving the cfg-files...

So what else do we need to do?
This is definately throwing sand in my food...
If I cannot fix this simple mailstore and config movement from one to another server, I'm back to square one and will need to find other mail-solutions...

I'm afraid I don't understand what's wrong here. Configuration files are same in old and new KMS installation because they were moved from old server to new one.
Did you follow the steps exactly?

Don't forget to stop KMS before copying cfg files.

Yes, I did not read it before, but my logic way of doing migrations was exactly like the procedure.
The only thing that might be a problem, is how passwords are made in Kerio.
If it uses SHA, does it contain any reference to the hardware or other things which might differ on the new server, building a hash for the password?
If so, it would make sence. But even setting password to NUL or copying the original password from the fresh install won't do me good.
Anyway, will try digging in a bit deeper once more and try to find my own glitch Wink
