Hello,

I have yet to do a Kerio upgrade on a server with active users. I would much appreciate it if the community could review my process below.

Server: Mac OS X Server 10.5+

1. Get Outlook Users to log out, (Mac or imap/pop users don't need to log out?)
2. Stop Kerio Server
3. Install Kerio Update
4. Install Kerio Open Directory Extension update
5. Start Kerio Server

Here is where I am unclear. Do I need to manually update KOFF and Mac Sync Connector or will this happen automatically?

Anything else I should know?

I'm looking forward to see if the calendar issues with Mac Sync Connector are fixed as well as the iPhone issues.

Nigel

That looks good, KOFF will be auto-updated the next time Outlook is launched (although make sure they're using SP3 for Office 2003)

KSC won't technically auto-update, it's a manual download and install but it's not too bad.

I would add to that:

1.1: Stop services (IMAP, SMTP, HTTP(?)...)
1.2: Run a full backup - just in case!

And sted 5 is done by the installer, so maybe you should switch 3 & 4?? That's what I do, anyway.

Also - do we need to reboot the OD Master after the ODE upgrade is installed, or do the installer HUP the OD process?

the syntax for upgrading is rpm -U Keriofilename. You should be fine upgrading via that method. I've run several linux servers that hosted KMS and never had an issue.

I notice that the new "iCal Config Tool" will add the Kerio server as an OD server in the workstation's Directory Services.

Even with this in mind, am I correct in concluding that it's NOT necessary to also install the Kerio OD extensions UNLESS the Kerio server is getting account info from a separate OD server?

Said another way: If the accounts are local to Kerio, the Kerio OD Extensions are not necessary, right?

Thanks,

Marc

Hi,

Yeah - the Kerio OD extentions are for installation ON the OD Server ONLY!

And as far as I can test, iCal delegation does not work through the OD server - you need the Kerio LDAP server configured in Directory Utility.

If you're not pulling user information from an OD server, then you don't need the OD extensions.

Great; thanks for the confirmations.

> And as far as I can test, iCal delegation does not work through the OD server - you need the Kerio LDAP server configured in Directory Utility.

Makes sense; though the Admin Guide is a bit confusing:

"35.2.1 Automatic configuration of CalDAV accounts
Kerio Technologies developed the iCal Config Tool which allows automatic configuration of
CalDAV accounts in Apple iCal on Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard and higher.
In addition to configuration of the CalDAV account, the tool sets Kerio MailServer as an Open
Directory server in Directory Utility on the client computer."
