    Question Different values in zimbra_posixaccount.zip and zimbra_samba.zip

    Hi everbody!

    In Zimbra 6.0.1 /opt/zimbra/zimlets-admin-extra/zimbra_posixaccount.zip and /opt/zimbra/zimlets-admin-extra/zimbra_samba.zip have different values for gidBase and uidBase.

    Content of /opt/zimbra/zimlets-admin-extra/zimbra_posixaccount.zip (config_template.xml file inside):

    Code:
    <zimletConfig name="zimbra_posixaccount" version="4">
        <global>
           	<property name="loginShells">/bin/bash,/bin/sh,/bin/false</property>        
        	<property name="homePath">/home/&#37;u</property>        
       		<property name="gidBase">10000</property>        
       		<property name="uidBase">10000</property>   
    		<property name="ldapSuffix">dc=example,dc=com</property>
    		<property name="ldapGroupSuffix">ou=groups</property>
        </global>
    </zimletConfig>
    Content of /opt/zimbra/zimlets-admin-extra/zimbra_samba.zip (config_template.xml file inside):

    Code:
    <zimletConfig name="zimbra_samba" version="6"> 
       <global> 
                   <property name="gidBase">1001</property> 
                   <property name="uidBase">1000</property> 
                   <property name="ridBase">1000</property> 
                   <property name="ldapSuffix">dc=example,dc=com</property> 
                   <property name="ldapGroupSuffix">ou=groups</property> 
                   <property name="ldapMachineSuffix">ou=machines</property> 
       </global> 
    </zimletConfig>
    In the article UNIX and Windows Accounts in Zimbra LDAP and Zimbra Admin UI 6.0 - Zimbra :: Wiki it&#180;s said:

    Edit ldapSuffix, uidBase and gidBase properties using the same values as you used in for zimbra_posixaccount.zip
    Questions:

    a) should I use 10000 for gidBase and uidBase in config_template.xml file of zimbra_posixaccount.zip and zimbra_samba.zip?

    b) besides the fact that in zimbra_samba.zip the values are in the range of thousands, there is some motivation for gidBase be 1001 and uidBase be 1000?

    c) what&#180;s the purpose of ridBase? it must match values of zimbra_posixaccount.zip (10000&#180;s) or the values of zimbra_samba.zip (1000&#180;s)?
