Hi,
i need to configure a new domain on Kerio 6.5.2.
It's name is: com7.it
Let's try to create on your own Kerio.

Kerio doesn't permit to write that name and any name like
comX.ext
where X is a number between 1 to 9.

what's the matter?

any idea?

Thank's

Well, if your Kerio installation is on a Windows box, that is a limitation of the Windows operating system. As a hold over from the DOS days, you can't create a folder or file with a name of com#, nul, prn, con, or aux.

As ccjwells points out correctly, this is a file system limitation, see

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa365247.aspx

The full list is

CON, PRN, AUX, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, and LPT9

You can probably work around this if you use SQL as a DB instead of the file system, but I am not sure.

Kerio creates a store folder under which all messages/calendar items/etc. for a particular domain are stored. That folder is named after the domain. Kerio doesn't use a database. So having a domain name that's not allowed as a folder name looks not to be possible.

You are right. I thought to have read somewhere, that it is possible to setup KMS on a SQL DB, but that seems to be wrong. KMS is only file-based (so messages, config, users etc. are all stored in the file system). It is possible to have the users in Active Directory, but that doesn't solve the problem, as the domains and messages would still sit in the filesystem.

I imagine if you needed to set up that domain, you could switch operating systems and go that route. Setting up Kerio on linux isn't all that difficult and would allow for that domain to be created.

I'm kinda surprised that Kerio never built-in workaround code for that.

I suppose you could get around it by creating 'com7domain.it' as a primary domain name, and set com7.it' as a domain alias. You'll have some extra details to attend to regarding user's reply-to addresses, though..

i try this workaround yet,
but it doesn't work.

I suppose that Kerio need to create a file with that name, so it can't!

I agree with ccjwells, the only solution can be to switch operating system.
