    Default How to retrieve users password..?

    hi,

    I am using FC 5 and ZCS_RC1_5.0.

    I want to know how to get Zimbra users password..? I tried in MySQL Database but nothing could be found. and i heared that Zimbra using LDAP for storing auth info. So, How to edit users password without going to Admin Console.....?

    Pls Help me in this regard...

    Thanks and Regards,
    Nandhu..

    Use zmprov if you want to set a password, 'zmprov help commands' for the format (or search the wiki).

    Hi,

    I found that only the Set Password can be done through 'zmprov' command.

    But I want to view and retrieve the users password.

    Is there any other ways for retrieving the password...?

    I though the whole point of passwords was security and their need to be secret?

    Yes, But i need them for implementing some other applicaions along with Zimbra. If the Admin creats the pwd, then no need to view it. But the users also having the rights to change their pwds, so i need to retrieve them..

    Please show me a way to do this...
