This article describes how to add Kerio Control Box to MyKerio and complete the registration process and basic configuration of the box.
The advantage of this process is that a technician can perform the installation remotely. A nontechnical assistant located onsite can switch on and connect the box to the network, and the technician can then add the box to MyKerio and manage it.
If you have the software or virtual appliance version of Kerio Control, you can add the appliance from the web administration interface. See Adding Kerio Control to MyKerio.

Self-provisioning in MyKerio
MyKerio allows you to add an appliance even before you connect it to the Internet for the first time. You can then configure, for example, shared definitions for the offline appliance. When you later connect the appliance to the Internet, MyKerio self-provisions it and uses the pre-configured settings.
The license of your appliance starts the day you make the first reservation.
To add an offline appliance and create a reservation for the appliance in MyKerio:
After you make the reservation, the appliance is shown as Not yet connected (grey).
The reservation expires in seven days. Connect the appliance to the Internet before that to self-provision it via MyKerio.
Once you successfully connect the appliance to the Internet, wait one or two minutes until the appliance is shown as Up (green).
