    Unhappy [SOLVED] Can't start ZMcontrol


    Now I'm trying to install Zimbra NE onto Ubuntu6.0.6.2 system. Since we have got a LDAP server and a working mail server, we plan to use external LDAP authentication and multi-stage migration to Zimbra email server.

    Right now I've finished installing Zimbra NE on my Ubuntu machine. But I can't start ZMControl. I checked the zimbra setup log file and saw the error message below:

    Unable to bind to ldap:// as uid=zimbra, cn=admin,cn=zimbra.

    I think the problem is about uid/cn. I have to change them to myldap top level of directory information. But I don't know how and where to change them. The top level of directory information in myldap is cn=Manger, dc=mydomain, dc=com. How should I set them into Zimbra system?

    Looking forward to your reply. Appreciation your help in advance!

    Did you install the Zimbra LDAP? If not, you need to do that as zimbra requires it's own LDAP for provisioning users and a whole bunch of other stuff.

    Actually I realized that I had to install Zimbra LDAP no matter whether I use external LDAP right after I posted this question. So I did it and Zimbra started to work. Still thank a lot for info!
