    Question changing password with Active Directory external authentication

    Hello,

    We setup a Zimbra CE where users use External Active Directory authentication.

    I've searched Zimbra Forums and Wiki for topics related to our porblem but none comes to a solution or the topics that I found were very old.

    Is there a way to setup Zimbra CE that when a user changes the password from Zimbra, Zimbra changes de password to the external Active Directory ?

    I also searched for a Zimlet for that but I've only found zimbraSambaPassword which is not exactly what I need.

    I assume that this functionality is not supported in the current Zimbra CE version, I'm right ?

    Thaks for your help.

    SI

    Thank you for your answer emiro. The other solution is to develop a new Zimlet that does that ;-)

    I've been searching for a way that Zimbra (ZCS) would change the password on the AD, since I'm using it as the external authentication method.

    Is there way to make this work?

    Thanks in advance.

    There is very little documentation about zimbraPasswordChangeListener. From what I can tell, there is not support for changing AD passwords with Zimbra. Nor is there a enhancement request. (In fact, the "change password" button became available on a recent version of Zimbra by accident, and the bug request result was to disable it again.... not make it work.) >.>

    If this is something you'd like to see, the first step will be to start a request on Bugzilla Main Page - Zimbra

    Ok, Emiro. Then we have to start a bug request.

    Thanks,
