I have configured the LDAP in zimbra as per the instructions found in this article
I have also managed to get a fedora 12 client to successfully authenticate against the zimbra LDAP db, but i cannot for the life of me get my mac clients to authenticate... Im not sure if this is snow leopard specific or a general mac problem.
has anyone succeeded at this?
the steps i have looked at so far are
I have edited the /etc/openldap.ldap.conf included the TLS_CACERTDIR /etc/openldap/cacerts/ and have copied over the ca certificate from the zimbra install.
this still does not allow for authentication from the snow leopard client
also when looking at the logging of ldap on the zimbra server it looks as though the search base is incorrect from the osx client. Is there anything specific that should be done in the osx gui "search and mappings" in order to get this to see the LDAP structure correctly?
I have considered adding the apple.schema to the zimbra ldap directory. Would this make any difference in the short term with trying to get the osx clients authenticated. Even so I would eventually like to put this on the LDAP directory for automounts etc...
any experiences or thoughts would be appreciated.
