Good Afternoon.

I have a client who is running Kerio Connect on a creaking old server, running Windows 2000 Advanced Server of all things. He wants a new machine, which will be running Windows Server 2008. They use Thunderbird to access Kerio thru IMAP and webmail.

They are not currently running with a domain or AD. The server is nothing more but a mail and file server.

If I create them a new domain on this new server and move them to AD, will simply adding this old server as a domain member keep Kerio happy, or create more problems than it is worth?

Or would it be easier and simpler to install Kerio Connect on the new server and restore their email?

Yes, I'm a Kerio Connect virgin. Smile

I would get rid of the Windows 2000 server ASAP. Windows 2000 Server has heaps of security issues and is probably running on very old hardware.

Saying this you really shouldn't run Kerio on the domain controller, so you should still have two servers. The kerio server can simply be a member of the domain.

Yes it does, and yes it is. However, my client is struggling to pay the costs of the new server as it is, so replacing the Win2000 box probably won't happen anytime soon.

My main question still stands - are there any issues connecting a Kerio Connect server to a new domain as a member server?
