I know I can use an extrenal LDAP for authentication, but as far as I understodd for authentication only, i.e. Zimbra cannot get other stuff (e.g. address, phone numbers, etc,) from an external LDAP Server.
As I need LDAP for a central user repository (website authentication, Modle Authentication, etc.), but don't want to keep two directories (Zimbra and LDAP) up to date, I wonder whether I can query the Zimbra Mail server for extrenal authentication from e.g. a website, or use some sort of LDAP Proxy like Penrose. Is Zimbra's LDAP Structure changed a lot? where can I find the rootdn?
Thanks a lot in advance
