since there is no IM in the new Kerio Connect V7, I would like to install openfire 6.4.2
Does someone have successfully install Openfire (on a linux plateforme) to address a local LDAP kerio database (my server is a linux rhel5 standalone server ) ?
my Configurations failed with these two points in directory server LDAP -> profile settings configuration :
1/ Base DN :
What is the correct DN to declare to address only the GAL kerio LDAP ? (fn=contactroot, dc=domain, dc=com or something else)
what is the correct Administrator DN to declare ? (admin or admin<_at_>domain.com by exemple)

Are you trying to use the GAL as a resource of available users, or for user authentication?
I don't believe Kerio's LDAP provides AUTH services outside itself.
You may be better off setting up a real LDAP server. I recall you can point your local accounts to the LDAP server for authentication without having to delete the local account. You could also delete the local account (not it's folder) and then add an LDAP account with the same short name - it will point to the original mail store.
This KB article may help:
Standard LDAP isn't directly supported by Kerio, but it does work. Active Directory and Open Directory are better choices in terms of support.
I'm playing with OpenFire on a test server right now. It connected with my Open Directory server beautifully (although I haven't gotten profile photos to work yet). I'll soon be deploying it on the Kerio server for production.
I'm by no means the authority on this. So, cum grano salis.
