Can anyone please tell is it possible to use external and internal LDAP database simultaneously for authentication. Because we have a windows domain running on SAMBA, so i am planning to use that database for my existing users and for some dummy accounts we want to use internal zimbra ldap database.
Thanks in advance
You can't use both sources to authentictate users simultaneously. What you can do is use the zimbra ldap if the account doesn't exists in the external ldap or if it goes down. Use the following command:
zmprov md <domain> zimbraAuthFallbackToLocal TRUE
