I'm migrating from an Exchange Server to Kerio on an Apple Xserve. I have Kerio integrated with Open Directory. I now need to plan the transition in more detail.

What I would like to do is migrate my users' mailboxes and calendars from their current Active Directory Exchange accounts to pre-existing Open Directory-based Kerio accounts. The difference here from the documentations migration is that I'm not creating new internal Kerio accounts, but transferring the inboxes/calendars to preexisting Kerio Open Directory-based inboxes/calendars.

Has anyone done this before? How would you do this in the most auto-magical way?

An alternative that would be acceptable would be to migrate to internal Kerio accounts, but then migrate the internal Kerio accounts to Open Directory-linked accounts. Is this possible?

Any advice appreciated!

So, I just got the email from support with documentation on how to use the migration tool. Looks like I have an easy answer...

Quoth the Raven...

"If you do not wish that passwords are generated for users of the migrated accounts, create user accounts in Kerio MailServer before the migration. This may be done either by their import or mapping to Kerio MailServer.

For user import or mapping from the Active Directory, users will use their original Active Directory passwords to connect to Kerio MailServer. User import from NT or Active Directory domain is described in manual Kerio MailServer, Administrator's guide.

If the user accounts already exist in Kerio MailServer, new mailboxes are not create nor new passwords are generated. In such a case, the migration tool only copies contents of MS Exchange user accounts to Kerio MailServer. Users login to their mailboxes by their original password."

That's pretty easy and how I hoped it would work...
