    Default Integrating zimbra with LDAP/Active Directory

    Hi ,

    I am using Zimbra 3.1.3 Network edition on a Redhat Linux machine. I would like to know if I can integrate zimbra with LDAP/Active directory.

    The purpose of doing so is .....

    1) Suppose, I create a user in my Linux machine, the same user should be created automatically in Zimbra (allocating a mail box).

    2) If I change the properties of that user in the Linux machine, it should be changed automatically in Zimbra (say like, chaning the password)

    The above options look something like what are existing in MS Exchange Server and Kerio.

    what does that have to do with ldap or active directory? OS? PAM/NSS type? passwords can be synched by using external auth for a domain and authing against an ldap/AD server. it does mean creating duplicate accounts however. you can automate duplicate account creation/maintenance either through PAM or more likely through scripts which call zmprov. search the forum for further info, all of these topics have been asked before.

    sorry, you state redhat. unless you've added FDS then you're presumably using flat files. if you're adding users so that they can use workgroup functions like samba in a shared service environment, the answer is basically no to your questions.
