Kerio Control added to AD and users synced from AD.
AD is VM behind kerio.
What if AD VM fail? Would I have the ability to access to kerio control admin panel with local admin user (which was the first user when the kerio control have been installed)?

Thank you in advance.

Hello Dominic,

Yes you are able to access the Control admin console with the Local Admin (it will be in the local User Database of Kerio Control).

All the best,

Hello Dominic,

As Jonas said, You will be able to access Kerio Control Admin Console with Local Admin User & Password.

I strongly recommend, if you are going for Active directory setup, then you needed to have a #FailSafe Alternatives; You can connect to Multiple Directory servers or Additional Directory Server for the same Domain on VM or Physical Machine.

In the event of a VM Failure, Kerio Control, will automatically, Connect to the Available or Secondary Domain Controller for User Authentication.

For more information, You can mail me at "kumaresan<_at_>velirs.com" I'll be happy to assist you further.
