    Default [SOLVED] LDAP listen on multiple interfaces/IPs

    Hi there, I wonder if anyone has any thoughts about this:

    I'm running Zimbra on an outward facing Virtual Machine on my server to serve my mail and so on. It works a treat.

    But...I also want to use the Zimbra LDAP server to authenticate users on different machines on my internal private network of VMs.

    The Zimbra server is connected to two bridges - one to the outside world with an IP address that resolves to its server name via the public DNS, the other with a private 10.0.0.x IP address with four other virtual servers on that network.

    Is there any way I can do this, short of running a replica which I don't really want to have to do, or a DNS on the private network (which besides will be a bit odd as it would mean two IP addresses resolving to one name wouldn't it?)?

    Cheers,

    Jock

    not sure theres a proper way to do this. There is a local config var called ldap_bind_url but I don't know if it would take multiple arguments.

    You could edit the startup script /opt/zimbra/bin/ldap and modify where it uses the -h argument since according to the slapd man page that can take multiple urls. That probably wouldn't be preserved on an upgrade so make sure you keep notes!

    You're probably right that there's not a proper way from what I read. I've removed the -h parameters for now and it appears to work. I'm not sure whether that is over-lax but it is a personal server so I'm not too concerned!

    Thanks,

    Jock
