    Default Import Account Wizard in v.7 - Invalid Credentials

    I installed new 7.1.4 Zimbra server and now I have to import users and data from older Zimbra 5 server. There is "Import Accounts" wizard in v.7 and I stumbled on "LDAP: error code 49 - Invalid Credentials"

    It must be BIND-DN or LDAP search base part as I am not sure I got that right. How should my BindDN look like if my user is and how about LDAP search base if all users are in single domian ( This is how I did it.

    BindDN: cn=admin,dc=domain,dc=com
    LDAP search base: dc=domian,dc=com

    I'd also like to know how to use the migration Wizard from ZCS 7 to ZCS 7, as this throws me through hoops every time I see it....

    I asked this same question to the supportdept of Zimbra because the documentation laks proper explanation, this is what one of them came up with:

    Try with non-ssl and the source ldap should be reachable.

    LDAP URL: server-name : 389 : non-ssl
    Bind DN: <default>
    Bind password: <zimbra_ldap_password of source server>
    LDAP filter: <default>
    LDAP search base: dc=example,dc=com # example domain:

    Once you migrate you need add the zimbraMailHost:target server for all newly provisioned users.

    $ zmprov ma zimbraMailHost <targetserver>
    $ zmprov ga zimbraMailHost
    Then, the zimbra ldap password you need can be retreived on the source machine by executing:
    su - zimbra -c "zmlocalconfig -s zimbra_ldap_password"
    Now I had one more question: how to migrate only one mailbox (I have to test migrate first and then I want a step by step migration of users), so I have to modify the LDAP filter... (I just started searching for this, as I stumbled uppon your question...)
