    Default Help configuring GAL with external LDAP

    Please help!
    I am configuring GAL in zimbra server working with LDAP authentication. Authentication is OK, GAL is working but I always have empty results in configuration test. Obviously GAL search's are empty in every other place.

    I have doubt about my configuration against LDAP. Where can I start searching?

    [root@zimbra bin]# ./zmprov gd ciam.local
    # name ciam.local
    dc: ciam
    description: dc=CIAMSPA,dc=IT
    o: ciam.local domain

    Couple things to checkl:

    Does your external LDAP support anonymous binding? If not, have you set the correct account to bind?

    For your filter, try something more like:
    or even:

    Also, if you want to use AutoComplete from Global Address List, you will need to set up a filter there too..this: zimbraGalAutoCompleteLdapFilter: externalLdapAutoComplete doesn't work(at least not for me)

    One last thing...My GAL tests haven't always shown results, even when things were set correctly. But it has always worked even if the results were blank. Not sure if that's a bug, but just something I've noticed.
