    Default [SOLVED] Zimbra unix usre and group account

    The installation creates the zimbra account using regular user/group number range. Can package be changed to use a number in system account range (below 999)?

    Our configuration management removes any local account that is not managed by central account system. As a work around, is it Okay to pre-create zimbra accounts before the package installation?

    You can safely precreate the accounts. The installer only creates them if they don't exist.

    You'll need 3 groups, zimbra,postfix,postdrop

    Accounts are created with the following properties.
    useradd -g zimbra -G postfix,tty -d /opt/zimbra -s /bin/bash zimbra
    useradd -g postfix -d /opt/zimbra/postfix postfix
