    Default [SOLVED] LDAP Search Base Question

    Hi all

    I have a GAL across 6 different domains, on two LDAP servers. I have set up "zmprov mcf zimbraGalInternalSearchBase ROOT" and in the zimbra client a user in one domain can see a user in another. Now I am trying to set up an iMap client to do the same thing: search for address from the GAL, and I am having some problems.

    My question is, what is the right search-base to type in, if I have several domains with completely different names. How do I refer my mail client to the top level of all domains?

    Thank you very much!

    can't answer your question, but is it possible that you're just not talking to the server? here's something that affected me - my imap clients couldn't connect to my zimbra gal, and I found that zimbra only listens on ONE interface to port 389 - there's a zmprov command about it - (search this forum) After that, I didn't specify a search root at all - just (mail=*) If I remember right

    Thanks for your answer.
    I can actually connect to the server as my Zimbra log says something like "invalid dn" every time I try and connect, or, if I leave my search field blank I get a message that says that no matches can be found on the server ( on the client side).

    Thanks!

    I'm having the same issue under SeaMonkey. My base DN is as follows:

    ou=people,dc=domain,dc=com

    I don't get an error, but I don't get any results either.

    This is working on 6.0.2, I tested on various installs, what happened on 6.0.3? I hope this is fixed on 6.0.4, or do we have to fill a bug?? It's a basic feature, not supposed to stop working...

    Absolutely nothing gets fixed with a filed bug report.

    BTW, did you read the 6.0.3 Release Notes about Anonymous Bind?

    Yes, I read. When trying with authentication I get this message: slapd[4099]: conn=4803 op=0 do_bind: invalid dn (admin@domain.com) for example.

    Using Anonymous login the tests are ok but don't get results

    admin@domain.com isn't a valid dn at all. Fix your bind dn.

    A correct dn is in the form of "uid=, ...." for example,

    "uid=joe,ou=people,dc=mydomain,dc=com"

    Or for the zimbra admin DN:

    "uid=zimbra,cn=admins,cn=zimbra".
