Hello Dear friends, I am a new with your soft and need some suggestions about configuring Kerio Control With Domain Controller:

I have two Servers one For Domain Controller (Which I'll Configure) and the Second for Kerio Control....

Please Suggest how to configure....
as i know kerio has its own DNS, DHCP server
What will be the correct step: Configure Domain Server without dns and dhcp (I think this is not a good idea, because I must use Active directory and RIS - Remote installation Server role too)
or Install kerio without dns and dhcp server.....

Do you have a Step By step configuration manual for this....
I need to configure them correctly, because I'll have about 250 pc's to manage....

I liked Kerio because it also has built in content filter and also ability to configure one additional antivirus (In my case we use Nod32 v4 Business edition)

Thank you very much in Advanced!

DHCP is quite easy to disable, and I would recommend it. Simply navigate to the DHCP configuration panel and un-check "Enable DHCP server". DNS is similarly disabled. Just un-check "Enable the DNS forwarding service".

However, there really is no harm in leaving DNS running on Kerio. In fact, I use it as the Secondary DNS server in my DHCP configuration, just in case the Domain Controller is down for service. Rememeber, it is a forwarding service, not a real DNS server. Just configure it to forward how you need. In fact, by default, the DNS forwarding service appears to know about the Domain Controller if you have Kerio joined to the domain.

Hello Silaris Thanks for your reply...

So as I guess I have todo

First I'll configure domain controller with everything (DNS, DHCP + IP Address Range) and other services if i need (Time Server, RIS, Active Directory etc.)

after that I'll install kerio control to another pc and will not activate dns, dhcp services, but i'll connect it to a domain from (from the kerio) as i remember there is a function which is importing users from DC

am I right, do I need something special?
I searched about this, but found nothing Sad

That sounds right. Everyone's configuration is a little different, but you aren't much different than me.

The online configuration guide (and downloadable PDF) does describe these steps individually, so you can educate yourself somewhat that way. As long as you aren't doing anything tricky, it should be very straightforward to get things working.

Keep in mind, there is still a bit of work required to setup your Traffic Rules, Logging, NTP, SMTP notifications, etc. I've limited my response to only the interaction between Kerio Control and the DC, and the roles they will play.

Considering a Windows Domain environment, I would not use any other DNS/DHCP than the Windows Domain Controller. I would not enable the Kerio Control DHCP and I would leave the Kerio DNS in forwarding mode. This has been working well for me for many years with Kerio Control. Disabling the Kerio DHCP is a simple (un)check box.
