I've searched all over this board and have found a few questions close, but none quite like mine. I may already know the answer, but I want to ask anyway
I have a bunch of users in a Novell eDir and we are looking at Zimbra as an alternative to Exchange. I've figured out how to do external auth, but that still leaves me to create an account in Zimbra. Just looking in the openLDAP directory it appears that I can provision a user via my Novell Identity Manager, except for one attr. The zimbraID attribute appears to be a hashed value. I'm curious how that value is arrived at. I looked at two users that have very different values. Also, my theory doesn't account for the data in the SQL DB. I was trying to stay away from ZMProv only because it is a script and I think it could be more dynamic via Identity Manager.
Am I dreaming of the impossible?
