Hello everybody,

I have a kerio mailserver with 120 clients connected, and an active directory to authenticate these users. I would like to automatize the configuration of my KOC (offline edition) in Outlook for my users, because I have to help them each time they log on a new computer...

Someone has ever done this ?

Thank you for your help,

Regards
JD

I think the next version, 6.6, will have this ability. I don't know how to do it with 6.5.2.

I don't know if that would be necessarily a good idea. The initial sync is pretty resource intensive on the server. I believe the documentation also states that you shouldn't have multiple initial syncs running at the same time for similar reasons.

If you script all of their settings, you have no control over when the initial sync will occur. You could have several people log into different machines and start up Outlook at around the same time. If it's the first time on the machine and they have enough mail, multiple initial syncs would be running and you could potentially bog the server down to the point where it stops responding.

Is there any way you could set up centralized home directories so you wouldn't have to reconfigure each machine they log in to for their email?

You can set the users up to use roaming profiles. This is done in Acitve Directory. Everything that normally is stored in users profiles on their local machines would now be stored on servers and brought down to them when they log in. The Kerio offline connector would still need to be installed on each machine. However, if a user is going to be logging into many PCs, I would have them use webmail.

I have roaming profiles, but you can just redirect Application data, my documents and desktop folders. The configuration of the KOC must be remake on each different computer machine.

I have a ghost with the connector, but I would like to avoid making the configuration each time...

Does any one know where is the outlook account stored ?

Thanks you sincerely for your help.

With the rest of Outlook profiles:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles

KOFF or KOC is the account type, but it's still an Outlook profile. Redirecting the Application Data folder alone won't be much help.

It should work with a full roaming profile, but would you still have to perform the initial sync since the database is stored under the Local Settings folder.
