Dear Friend,

Sorry that it is hard to express the questions clearly, but I will try my best. Please feel free to ask me if you do not get my point. Thanks.

As we know that Kerio can store users in external openldap. Then comes a question:

1, how to set up the openldap entries so that the user will be published automatically in kerio public folder contacts


Another question, when there are external users in openldap global address lists, can we publish the global address lists in openldap to kerio public folder contacts?

"External users" means they are not users inside Kerio, or kerio cannot detect them in openldap.

Thank you.

Best regards,
Jacky

The LDAP database basically is the public contacts folder. Add a user to the public contact folder and it should be available via LDAP.

As far as I know, the Kerio LDAP server is read only. I don't believe you can save or store contacts via LDAP to then have available in the public contacts folder.

I attempted to do similar address linking between LDAP and our e-mail server for a long time, and had about given up. Then Kerio released their Active Directory plug in, and that changed everything. If you use Active Directory, then I'd recommend that as a solution. AD provides full LDAP abilities, and the plug in allows all AD entries to be linked in Kerio account creation.

Thanks your information about AD.

You can find in Kerio knowledge base about how to link openldap to kerio account creation.

Currently, we have several kerio servers, and each kerio gets only part of users in the openldap. For example, I have user1, user2, and user3 in openldap, and I have 3 kerio servers, kerio1, kerio2 and kerio3. Kero1 can only create account for user1 from openldap. Kerio2 is for user2 only, and kerio3 is for user3 only. Then the question is: how to show user1, user2, and user3 in all 3 kerio servers' public folder contacts?

Thank you.

Best regards,
Jacky

Thanks your reply about kerio internal ldap.

I was wondering about this also. Mostly on the Mac side of things, but wondering how it all works. For example we know that if users are created in the local Kerio Database then they are "browsable" in the Public Folders area. But if you use the Open Directory connector, it will allow a user already created in the Open Directory LDAP to be a mail user, but the account info stays in Open Directory. Therefore there is no great way to browse all the users. You can create an LDAP connection in Entourage or Address book, but it only allows for searching, not browsing. Probably just limitations of the apps connecting to Open Directory, but none the less it makes me want to create all users a second time in the Kerio local databse so that contact searching and browsing works better.
