    Default Multi-Domain Admin with resources shared amongst domains

    Greetings.
    I have a client that has a number of domains that they need to be able to self-administer based on some predetermined settings.

    For example say their main domain name = MyDomain.com
    Their full domain alias = DomainAlias.com
    ---(where all users@DomainAlias.com = users@MyDomain.com)
    Their additional domains = Domain1.com, Domain1.net, Domain2.us, Domain3.org
    They'll use the additional domains primarily to create limited email aliases and distribution lists that drop mail into the appropriate account(s)@MyDomain.com
    The total number of accounts the domain admin can setup (over all domains) is 25
    The total amount of disk space allocated by the domain admin is 50GB

    So I've managed to setup 1 user as a domain admin for MyDomain.com and the domain alias on DomainAlias.com is working fine.

    Now what I need to figure out is how to add the additional domains so that admin@MyDomain.com is able to manage them within the account and size limitations limitations of MyDomain.com while allowing the flexibility of creating aliases and distribution lists.

    I've been searching on this and I'm not clear how to achieve this, especially now that the "domain administrator" feature is broken in Zimbra 6.0.2
    (I had to manually assign all rights for MyDomain.com to the admin... I really don't like the idea of manually going through and assigning rights to admin@MyDomain.com for every additional domain they have).

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions...

    I just had to do this for a admin. Don't know if there is any way to accomplish what you want from the admin console but maybe you could script it like this.

    First get the existing grants on MyDomain.com for admin@MyDomain.com
    Code:
    grants=`zmprov gg -t domain MyDomain.com -g usr admin@MyDomain.com | awk '{ print $7 }' | sed '1,2d'`
    Now add those grants to newdomain.com for admin@MyDomina.com
    Code:
    for i in $grants;do zmprov grr domain newdomain.com usr admin@MyDomain.com $i;done
    You can have a look at the zmprov help for more details.
    Code:
    zmprov help right

    I wrote a quick and dirty guide to this. Maybe it helps you:
