    Default SSH Zimbra User Password - need to change

    Hello,

    Maybe a dumb question, but I'll ask..

    I recently ssh'd to my zimbra box, as the zimbra user -

    ssh zimbra@myhost.com

    At the password prompt, I simply hit return and was in.

    Obviously I need to add a password for this user. However, I am
    concerned that I might break something. I looked over the docs,
    searched and was not able to find any help.

    So...

    What happens if I change the zimbra users password, from nothing to something?

    Would it be safe to do this from the command line? Or, is there a LDAP consideration?

    Thanks in advance

    It should be ok to add a password. The UNIX user is always invoked from root so shouldn't be a problem.
