I have Kerio Connect 7.1.1 running on Mac OSX Server 10.6.4. The server is an Open Directory replica.

I have the Kerio OD Extension installed on the OD Master (rather than the replica where Kerio is running).

The Kerio Connect server is running great. Account and contact info is pulled into Kerio in good order from Open Directory.

BUT... I am getting a lot of the following errors in the Error Log:

[27/Oct/2010 08:47:34] main.cpp: Can't bind to LDAP server simple bind failed. User name: uid=adminname,cn=users,dc=master,dc=mydomain,dc=com. Err. code: -1, message: Can't contact LDAP server, LDAP srv. message: (NULL). ThreadId: 2989813760
[27/Oct/2010 08:47:34] main.cpp: Can't bind to LDAP server using any supported authentication method. User name: uid=adminname,cn=users,dc=master,dc=mydomain,dc=com. ThreadId: 2989813760

Configuration > Services > LDAP is stopped. When I try to start it I get the following error: Failed to start LDAP service. Another app is probably using the service's port number.

From the Kerio documentation it looks like the LDAP is used only for contact info in this context. Since our contact info is showing in good order is this error important?

Can I turn something off to make the errors go away?

1: We see the same error on multiple servers, but don't hear about users having problems.. a strange issue indeed!

2: The other LDAP service using the LDAP port is: Open Directory!
Simply move the LDAP port in Kerio to another port!
