Hi,

I've been trying without success on a test envioronment to get Kerio on Linux to authenticate to accounts on a Win2003 AD server.

Kerio AD extension has been installed on the Win2003 server, and the domain has been configured to activate the Accounts on AD. So it looks like the 2 systems are talking to each other.

However when attempting to login to any of the activated mails accounts, it would simply give a invalid password error.

Can someone highlight steps that I may have missed out in my setup? Would it be necessary to somehow add the Linux machine to the AD server?

Thanks,
Kok-Hong

I suggest you contact support. I am not sure, but I think the server on
Linux does not have the NTLM module installed. I won't be surprised if
Kerio has not implemented it in Linux. Most likely their implementation in
Windows uses some OS API that is not available under Linux and I am not
sure to what degree Active Directory is LDAP compliant.

If it's AD it shouldn't be using NTLM. It should be using Kerberos. NTML is for old NT domains, Kerberos is the new standard for AD.

Ensure that your Kerberos realm is configured in Kerio. Other than that, turn on verbose debugging and call Kerio tech support.
