    Default Licensing NE for use as a secondary server in single domain with Zimbra CE as primary

    Hi,
    I want to have Zimbra CE mixed with NE on same domain. I have read the spilt domain doc but still have a problem with the user licensing of the NE server. As ALL users have to be present on both servers how does one avoid the user limit on the NE server?
    I have tried adding the user on the NE box that lives on the CE box but it still takes up a license?
    What am I missing?.

    You're missing the fact that what you're trying to do is not possible, this has been answered many times in the forums and you cannot mix a bunch of NE user and 'OSS users' on the same server.

    Where did I say that it was "on the same server"?
    I am using 2 servers

    How about in these statements:

    The implication in that second statement is that you have a license for 'n' users and you're trying to provision n+x (in excess of the NE licence).

    Do you not understand my question?
    I will try and re phrase.
    I have 2 TWO different servers.
    1 the primary running either postfix or Zimbra CE
    2 the secondary running Zimbra NE for only a portion of the users on the domain.
    As per the split domain doc and logically the secondary server NE must know about ALL the users in order to send mail to them on the primary.
    As soon as you need to add these users you use up a license (or do you and that is my question.)
    Is this the case or is there some other way to tell Zimbra NE of the users on the primary server WITHOUT using a license?

    I perfectly understand the question, do you not understand the answer I gave you in my first reply? I'll state it again quite simply, you can't do it.

    The first point is that I don't understand why you're trying to use a Network Edition of Zimbra as a Secondary server in a single domain such as you've described above. The Split Domain is used when you want to move users permanently from one server (usually another server such as Exchange) to Zimbra. What are you trying to achieve with this configuration? What do you actually mean by a 'Secondary server'?

    If you want all of the users to exist on both servers then you will have to get an NE license for the total number of users that you have on your first server.
    Regards
