hi all..

first of all.. please help me on this.. its make me crazy..

i've installed a mail server using zimbra opensource edition...

the authentication method is integrated with active directory on windows 2003 R2 server...

i've create the user accounts on zimbra using zmprov command (with script help to add houndreds of users), FYI i implement this on my small campus to create students email account based on their students id.

now the problem is...

when some user change their password (from default password) on the windows 2003 server (AD).. they can't login anymore to the zimbra account.
the worst.. when try to add the account on zimbra using admin CP. it says that the account already exist

BUT.. when i try to search the account.. its not exist.. thats way i called it zombie account.. i've try to look directly to the mysql database but i can't find the account information...

but i'm no sure if the account error because of the password was changed or other problem...


please anybody help me on this.. plleeaasseeee......


FYI
i'm using zimbra OS 4.5.6
the error message
A distribution list, an alias, a resource or an account with the specified name already exists. Please choose another name.
thankyou.
