Hi all majestic users of Zimbra,
I've an OpenLDAP server setup on Centos with about 65 user entires.
I need Zimbra to have the same users, can I just ldapadd an ldif file with my entires from my existing LDAP server w/o screwing anything up?
I noticed Zimbra uses MySQL, whats it for and will it need the user entries as well?
My ultimate goal would be to have Zimbra get complete info from our existing LDAP db but since Zimbra doesn't truly integrate with an existing dir server and only supports external auth, I need some way of having the Zimbra LDAP get all its user info from my primary LDAP.
I actually don't mind having 2 separate LDAP dbs as we have an internal web portal that I am building and will fork out requests to both LDAP servers.
I had already asked support if I could use Zimbra LDAP as a primary auth for workstations but they said NO. My Centos LDAP functions as a workstation login service and Zimbra LDAP will be the mail/calendar/collab service.
My bosses love the Zimbra calendar or else I woulda chucked Zimbra as who needs the headache of trying to maintain 2 diff LDAP servers.
