    Default Moving to new external LDAP server

    Hello all,
    I'm running 5.0.13 OSE on Mac OS X Server, using external authentication to our separate Open Directory-based LDAP server (Mac OS X Server 10.4). I'm planning on switching to a new LDAP server, running on Mac OS X Server 10.5. The LDAP configurations are similar, but if I make the necessary changes to the URL and LDAP search base to our primary domain's authentication settings, should I have anything to worry about as far as "Bob Smith's" account staying with him? In other words, is there a unique identifier (GUID) that Zimbra's using to attach "bsmith" to his account on the server that Zimbra's getting from our older LDAP server, or should I be able to simply switch to the new LDAP server, and no one would be the wiser?

    zimbra matches users to the external ldap based on the filter you put in place hwen you setup the external auth. like the uid=%u so as long as whatever you're using for filter st ays the same you'll be good
