I have a few questions for those who may have done this (or otherwise know about it).

For a variety of reasons we needed to switch our network's authentication from Open Directory to Active Directory (win2012r2).

As long as all the accounts currently authenticated through OD exist with the same account name in AD, and I install the Active Directory Extension, should I be able to just change the settings in webadmin per the documentation ( on/ldap-and-directory-services/connecting-kerio-connect-to-d irectory-service-1130.html) and the existing accounts will find their corresponding AD credentials, without deleting any accounts or anything?

Also, my AD domain is different than my "outside" dot com domain and email. Will this be an issue?

Anything else I should watch for?
