    Default ZDesktop massive deployment

    Hi
    I have one simple question is there a way for massive Desktop deployment?
    I mean is there a way to write a configuration script for Zimbra similar to autoconfig feature from Thunderbird?

    Are you asking for two different things? It sounds like one is mass deployment which means to install Desktop on many boxes quickly. The other is to config these installs in a centralized way.

    Currently we don't have a way to do mass install yet, but for centralized config it depends on what you are looking for. If your users are using ZCS mailboxes, then most settings are synced down from server. To help me understand your needs better, could you provide a list of settings that you want to push to installs in a centralized way? Thanks!

    BTW, I filed Bug 36675 – Turnkey config of server settings

    If this is not adequate please add your comments there.

    Ok.
    Iím sorry Iíll make myself clear
    I donít mean central install function
    I mean is there a way to write a script for client autoconfig.
    For example a script that will read system variable ACCOUNT_NAME = XXXX and set automatically client according to this variable. In Thunderbird you can do such thinks with autoconfig.

    try {
    var env_user = getenv("ACCOUNT");

    lockPref("mail.account.account1.server", "server1");
    lockPref("mail.account.account1.identities", "id1");
    lockPref("mail.accountmanager.accounts", "account1");
    lockPref("mail.accountmanager.defaultaccount", "account1");
    lockPref("mail.accountmanager.localfoldersserver", "server1");
    lockPref("mail.identity.id1.fullName", env_user);
    lockPref("mail.server.server1.hostname", "10.0.1.57");
