    Default [SOLVED] zimbra user unknown

    Hi.

    I have a zimbra server running on ubuntu.

    I ave a problem on checking the zimbra version due to unknown "zimbra user"

    Q: How can i know what is the "zimbra user" user name and password?

    I have the root password of that server.

    Q: Is it possible to run "zmcontrol" under root? or other user?

    Regards
    Guy.

    How are you switching to the zimbra user - what's the exact command and output you're using?
    Regards

    There is only one way to become the ZImbra user and that is from the root account:

    Code:
    su - zimbra
    or for Ubuntu

    Code:
    sudo zimbra
    It's not necessary to enter a password zimbra user (except for the root password when using sudo) in either those cases.
