    Default GAL Question

    I have deployed Zimbra as a mail server, but I still allow users to use Outlook via POP.

    There are some using the web interface and we have question about the GAL.

    I run two mail Domains: maildomain1.ca and maildomain2.ca

    If you have an address that belongs to domain1 and you search via a period (.) in the GAL, you only see the accounts belonging to domain1.

    Obviously vice-versa with domain2.

    Is there a way to get the GAL to encompass all mail domains for all users, regardless of which domain their account was created under?

    Cheers,

    Travis

    Could you not just configure the GAL to lookup on both the internal as well as external... your external being the same ldap server, but different ldap search query.

    Actually I don't have an external LDAP server. The domains I am discussing are all local e-mail domains that exist on the Zimbra server. So if I am a user whose e-mail address ends with @domain1.com and I use the GAL all I see are the @domain1.com users. I cannot see the @domain2.com users and vice-versa.

    What I want is for all mail domain users to be able to see all of my mail domains in the GAL.

    I do not see a place to change the LDAP query, unless I was to specify "External" on configuration. As I am not running LDAP externally of Zimbra, this is not an option.

    Can I change the queries any other way?

    You should still be able to specify it as external, you will just be pointing it back to the same server, and requesting a different branch of the same tree.

    As mentioned, just configure your GAL as external, but point it at your Zimbra LDAP server. Set the search base to "dc=ca". You'll need to set the search filter to either "zimbra" or "zimbraAccounts", depending on what version you are using.

    To figure out which one, run this:
    Code:
    /opt/zimbra/bin/zmprov gacf|grep zimbraGalLdapFilterDef
    And see if you get:
    Code:
    zimbraGalLdapFilterDef: zimbraAccounts:(...long ldap filter)
    ...
    Or:

    And see if you get:
    Code:
    zimbraGalLdapFilterDef: zimbra:(...long ldap filter)
    ...
    I just fixed bug 7426 and added a new config option to control the search base for internal GAL searches, This should be in the next major release (i.e., 3.2).
