Ok, well, I've created a bash file with:
for each user account...working on 40 users at a time...
zmprov ma firstname.lastname@example.org +objectClass posixAccount uidNumber 10004 gidNumber 10002 loginShell /bin/bash
A couple of questions...
...if you noticed in the above code... I have no user home directory, is that ok?
...cause basically, I'm using the zimbra accounts for authorization to login to OTHER file servers.
...then it lead me thinking, could I designated a home directory on another server? could it be entered as \\192.168.1.250\home\user ...?
...and last question... entering 40 of the code above in a row cause any issues or ill affects to zimbra?
