    Default Windows Authentication against Zimbra LDAP/Samba

    As a disclaimer, I know nothing about how Windows works in a domain environment, but I'm about to start learning. It would be a nice feature if people's Windows accounts were the same as their Zimbra accounts. This would make provisioning a heck of a lot easier. I'm not necessarily looking for someone to tell me how to do this - I'll figure it out on my own - I'm just wondering if it's even possible at all?

    Thumbs up

    It's definitely possible!

    I am doing it right now.

    Running network version 4.0.x, can't wait for the 4.5 release.

    See my email regarding one small issue with integrating zimbra with your active directory

    http://www.zimbra.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5114.


    Some things to remember when integrating on the zimbra config side:

    GAL mode: external
    Server type: Active Directory
    LDAP search base: dc=yourcompany,dc=com (your AD domain name)
    LDAP url: ldap://192.168.x.x:389 (your primary domain controller IP)
    Bind DN: yourusername@yourcompany.com

    Similar settins for authetication. For the standard active directory you need to provide it with a domain account so it can query it, no anonymous queries allowed by AD unless you've changed the default microsoft settings.

    One other note: Create the user accounts in AD, then go into zimbra and create an account with the exact same username, but don't fill in a password. It will grab the password from active directory automatically every time the user tries to log in.

    Hopefully this gets you started =)

    -Dave
