What is the procedure for increasing the storage capacity of Kerio Control installed as a VM on Hyper-v. I have increased the VM storage capacity, but the Kerio Storage capacity never goes above 5.57GB.
How do you increase this setting, Deleting my logs constantly is not a good solution.
Do I have to edit the Kerio Linux VM? is there a setting in the Administration i'm missing?

There used to be an interface for Kerio that allowed installation on a Windows Host as an application but that isn't available anymore it seems, unless someone knows of this interface for the newer 9.3 Kerio Control versions

These are the steps I followed on Debian Linux to create a new partition on my drive and move my store to that new larger partition. This was for Kerio Connect, but Kerio Control should be pretty similar.

• Run the command fdisk l. You should see something similar to the following:
Disk /dev/sda: 2199.0 GB, 2199023254528 bytes
• We will be putting our partition on /dev/sda. Run the following command
cfdisk /dev/sda
• Select Free Space (should be about 2 TB). Then from the menus at the bottom, select New, Primary, Size in MB (default should be maximum)
• Once done select Write
• Select Quit
• Your new partition is now created at /dev/sda2. Reboot for changes to take effect
• We will format it with the following
mkfs.ext3 /dev/sda2
• After formatting, we will mount the new partition to put our store in. Run the following commands
mkdir /store
mount -t ext3 /dev/sda2 /store
• You can check that the partition was mounted by running the following
ls -lsa /store
• We need to add to the fstab so that it will mount automatically upon reboot. Run
vi /etc/fstab
• At the end of the file add the following line
/dev/sda2 /store ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
• Save the file when done
• We now need to change location of store
• First, stop Kerio
/etc/init.d/kerio-connect stop
• Then copy data from old message store
cp -R -p /opt/kerio/mailserver/store /store
• Change message store directory
sed -i -e "s/\/opt\/kerio\/mailserver\/store/\/store/" /opt/kerio/mailserver/mailserver.cfg
• Start Kerio again
/etc/init.d/kerio-connect start
