    Default One user, two email domains, one AD authentication domain

    Hi,

    We are running one ZCS 7.1 OSS server for two different company domains. All of our email authentication passes thru an Active Directory server where each user is a member of each domain.

    My problem is, I have 5 users with email address for both company1 and comapny2. Let say user1@company1.com and user1@company2.net. Is it possible for user1@company2.net to authenticate with AD of user1@company1.com.

    In general, can I have two different email accounts authenticating with the same LDAP or AD server that has a different domain name?

    Thanks

    yes, its possible, i have tried that, you just need to specify the @domain.com when you login as...

    if he need to login to company1, he needs to use the login name user1@company1.com, to login as company2, user1@company2.com should be use, but if you set company1 as default domain, then you dont need to enter the domain name, only the user uid

    Thanks for the reply but I think you miss my point. Anyway I'll explain further.

    In ZCS, we can set Authentication mechanism to External Active Directory. Now my example below authenticate via External Active Directory.

    Company1
    Email domain: company1.com
    External AD domain name: company1.ac
    User email address:ABC@company1.com
    User AD account: ABC@company1.ac

    Company2
    Email domain: company2.net
    External AD domain name: company2.gc
    User email address: XYZ@company2.net
    User AD account: XYZ@company2.gc

    User ABC and XYZ belongs to two different company. Each of them have an email address and an AD account.

    Now I have this user EFG who has two email (EFG@company1.com and EFG@company2.net) but has only one AD account (EFG@company1.ac)

    How can I use his AD account EFG@company1.ac to authenticate his login to EFG@company2.net wherein the domain company2.net was configured to authenticate to company2.gc AD.

    I hope it becomes clearer.
