    Default $ not allowed in passwords...

    FYI: Looks like $ is not allowed in the password, unfortunatly it doesn't tell this during install.
    Counting down until the Mass Effect release date...

    Yes it is, it works for me with a $ in the password. How about some details other than 'it doesn't work'?

    Using Zimbra 4.5.1 on openSUSE 10.2.

    During install given the password CVO$Lokeren, got no complaints.
    Tried to logon later on the admin console -> login failed

    Set the password again to CVO$Lokeren -> unknown account (?)
    Created a new admin account, with the password CVO$Lokeren -> password to short
    Created a new account with the password CVOLokeren -> no complaints
    Logged on to the admin console -> no problem, logon successful

    So I concluded that Zimbra doesn't support the $ sign...

    Well, on my system it works - I have 4.5.1 on CentOS4.4. I've only tried doing this through the Admin UI not the command line.

    Can you try creating a test admin account via the UI then see if you can set the password to your value in there.
    Regards

    Confirmed the same issue here on our installation of 4.5.3 if the password is set via the commandline zmprov tool with a $ in it the password doesn't work. This probably works fine via the UI. Although it is quite a pain to update X number of passwords via the UI.

    If you want to set it with zmprov you need to enclose the password in 'quotes' if it has a $, or the shell will try to interpret it as a variable.
