Say I want to use our zimbra server to authenticate linux users with the nis.schema. I'm sure technically it "can work" but then, if I add users through zmprov (or the admin web interface), that will just do the default zimbra account/ldap data.
I'd then have to have a separate script to make sure the nis.schema is set (or that the LDAP entry contains the objectClass for nis.schema).
I found some postings that mention how you can provision/add zimbra accounts through SOAP - is this what I need to do?
Ultimately I want a webpage that will ask for all new user information, and then will trigger whatever scripts that have to be done to get the new employee setup. Currently it's a mishmash of scripts and some manual gruntwork.
