Dear Community,

Here at our company we are planning to migrate to Kerio mailserver because our old SBS is taking up to much of our precious time to keep it afloat.

However, removing out SBS from our topology also removes AD schema and authentication server. I am now using a SAMBA setup (pdc) to authenticate users and I am wondering if Kerio will be able to use this as a domain controller for authentication.

I have not ordered Kerio yet as I have not disarmed our SBS yet, so I can go either way. What would you guys suggest. Small windows 2000 server with Kerio or is my Samba setup enough?

Regards,
Tommie

Dear tommie,

the answer depends on how confident that you can manage the OpenLDAP / SAMBA server remember that the total cost of ownership is not just based on up front cost's for a reason Smile


you can always call your local kerio representitive in the netherlands http://www.kerio.nl


you can configure kerio mailserver to use OpenLDAP

please see

Hey,

I am confident I can manage! Wink However, moving from their original SBS2003 with Exchange 2003 setup to Kerio, with Samba and openLdap seems a bit daunting just for a weekends work.

So I think I will install Kerio along side their original mail/sbs server and migrate every user on there. Afterwards when Kerio is the designated mailserver I can start up a new DNS server with DHCP and start taking control over the network from the current Domain Controller. I think I will not install a new domain, just a workgroup at first to keep it a bit simple

I am searching for a reseller now in Holland for Kerio. Found a couple, but I also whish for support when the shit hits the fan. Are there any good reviews on Kerio's stability available?

gr.T
