    Default Is Tiered admin possible

    I have a number of school admins I want to give admin privs to my zimbra server, but would like to find a way they only have access to accounts from their school. Is this possible, or soon to be coming?

    I notice your profile says 5.0.2_GA_1975.UBUNTU6 FOSS edition
    Delegated admin is a NE feature. Compare ZCS Editions
    A domain administrator can create and maintain accounts, aliases, distribution lists, and calendar resources in a specific domain (they can't currently "view mail" either).
    For FOSS you might set up a SOAP portal, command limited console to run only certain zmprov commands, or a zimlet to hide functionality in the admin console.

    In the works for NE:
    Bug 11515 - role based delegate administration
    Bug 5254 - Domain Admin can own multiple domains
    Bug 5253 - Domain Admin should be able create sub-domains of the domain of which he is owner
    Bug 13183 - view mail, domain mail queue, and virus update info for domain admins
    (Might seem like a contradiction to Bug 11374 - View Mail: should be possible to disable this for some/all admins but that's handled in Bug 11515 - role based delegate administration)

    Default Need to stay no cost

    The schools will want to stay with the no cost solution. None of them will want to run anything from the command line. I was hoping to restrict them to their own student email accounts, or set up sub-domains on the server, so that each school only had rights to their domain.

    Thanks for the reply

    I noticed that on the 5.5 roadmap, delegated admin was listed as a feature. Is this meant to be something that will trickle down to the OSE version, or is this an NE version only?
