I am trying to get Kerio to use Apple OpenDirectory.

This is a test server I have set up, to see if Kerio is a viable replacement for Exchange.

The mail server has been installed on the same machine as OpenDirectory and is running Mac OS X Server 10.3.

The machines name is 'imac' and the machines domain is 'meatandpotato.co.uk'.

I have set the following settings in Kerio:

Directory Service Type: Apple OpenDirectory
Hostname: imac.meatandpotato.co.uk
Username: uid=root,cn=users,dc=imac,dc=meatandpotato,dc=co,dc=uk
Search Suffix: dc=imac,dc=meatandpotato,dc=co,dc=uk

I get the following error in the log files:

[17/May/2004 22:43:44] main.cpp: LDAP connect to server imac.meatandpotato.co.uk failed: Invalid credentials
[17/May/2004 22:43:44] main.cpp: Search request to LDAP server imac.meatandpotato.co.uk failed: Can't contact LDAP server

Do I need to give Kerio root permissions? I am very new to OS X, and am unfortunately used to using Windows NT. Hopefully this will change if I can get this to work:)

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

I believe that "username" would just be the user's name and not the user's distinguished name path (dn).

Also, search suffix should just be "dc=meatandpotato,dc=co,dc=uk". "dc=" means domain component, and your machine name of "imac" is definitely not a domain component.

Hope that helps,
Feel free to ask more questions,
Jacob
