Hi All

I was wondering if someone could point me in the direction of a guid to stop Kerio services from starting when I reboot the server.
We have a MAC mini and need to have Kero off for a time. However when we restart the server the kerio services are kicked back into life. Each time to stop it I need to go to System prefrences -> kerio -> Stop services
However this only stops it for the time the server is on then when we reboot its restarted

Is there an easier way to stop this service for a period of time so it wont kick back on after restarts or is the only way to uninstall?

Thanks a million

I am running Windows, but I would image that there is an option to set how the Kerio service starts, like in Windows. Start when server starts, Start manually.

A quick google search says
Launch the Server Admin tool (Applications > Server > Server Admin) and adjust the settings for Kerio Connect.

It's a Mac. There is no "msconfig" on Mac.

It's hard to test this without rebooting the server, so I'm not sure if this will work for you. Instead of stopping Kerio Connect using the preference pane, try this in Terminal:

sudo /usr/local/kerio/mailserver/keriomailserver stop

Also, there is a launch daemon for Kerio Connect located in /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.kerio.mailserver.plist. If you run this command, it may prevent Kerio Connect from launching again on boot:

sudo launchctl unload -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.kerio.mailserver.plist

The "-w" unloads the launch daemon permanently, which means you'll need to reverse this with:

sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.kerio.mailserver.plist

I haven't tried this myself, but having manipulated launch daemons in the past for various purposes, using launchctl and the -w option has worked for me. A call to Kerio support would also be a good idea.

Apple's Server App has no control over Kerio Connect, but it can sometimes affect webmail if you are running web services on the server in addition to Kerio's webmail.

I'm always happy to help. I've managed Kerio Connect on Mac servers for about 8 years. I'm interested in knowing if this worked for you. I'm curious about what you're doing that requires Kerio Connect to not start automatically.
