I'm setting up the VMware trial of Kerio, on ESXi. I fat fingered the primary domain when I configured the system, and the domain is now cole-family.xom when it should be

Question is this: Can I delete this domain and add a new one? My fear is that I only have one user, the "administrator" user that I was asked to configure during the wizard. This is associated with the cole-family.xom domain, and I'm fearful that I'll lock myself out if I delete the cole-family.xom domain.

Thanks in advance!

Try the following:

1. Add 2nd domain in Kerio. ( Domains > ADD > Type in any domain name > OK > APPLY.

2. Add an admin account in the second domain.( make sure you give it Read/Write Access to Admin console ). [ Users > ADD > Internal DB > Admin > Go to Rights > Give read/write access to admin console > OK > APPLY.

NOW: Close the admin console and log back in using the Admin<_a.t_> ....

3. Set the 2nd domain to be the primary domain.

4. Delete the users from the original domain (The secondary one now).

5. Delete the original domain ( The secondary / typo one).

6. Create a 2nd domain ( with the correct name).

7. Add admin user to the 2nd domain. ( Read/Write Access to admin console).

8. Set the 2nd domain to primary.

That should do it.

Second way to do it is by modifying the mailserver.cfg file and users.cfg file but since you're new to Kerio, I would go with the first solution.

Hope that helps.

As it is a virtual environment, make a snapshot and try whatever makes sense to you and revert to the former version if the result doesn't fit your needs.

Yeah, you can do that too. However, you need to stop the running KMS service as a snapshot might cause files corruption since they are being used by KMS. ( Snapshot will try to copy files that are already in use by KMS).

Thank you
