    Default Incorporating Zimbra into an existing OpenLDAP setup

    Hi all,

    I've been tasked to incorporate Zimbra into our existing OpenLDAP and I'm having a bit of a trouble. Here's the situation, let me know if anything is unclear:

    We have OpenLDAP set up for our existing domain, We have two main groups of accounts inside the directory - ou=people,dc=abc,dc=com and ou=staff,dc=abc,dc=com. If possible, I would like to connect Zimbra to the ou=staff,dc=abc,dc=com accounts so only staff members could access Zimbra.

    I'm using ZCS 5.0.2 GA, downloaded yesterday from Zimbra.

    When I first installed ZCS (it was 5.0.1 at the time, a few weeks ago), I tried to have Zimbra point to our external LDAP directory, but I couldn't see any LDAP entries once I connected. Perhaps I was overlooking something, because I never got it to work.

    Currently I have ZCS set up the default way, and I assigned another domain to it - By itself, ZCS is working great with its own LDAP server, but I don't like the though of having two LDAP servers.

    Has anyone successfully integrated Zimbra into an existing OpenLDAP directory?

    Thanks in advance.

    Zimbra requires it's own version of openLDAP to be installed for our own use, you can authenticate against your external LDAP as detailed in this article.
