    Default How to migrate (Move) from Openldap accounts to Zimbra Ldap?


    I have a Mail Server Qmail running and authenticating from Openldap Server. I want to go for Zimbra mail server.
    How can I migrate (move) all Openldap accounts (username & password) to Zimbra? so that I can Wipe out my present Openldap server.

    you could do an ldap dump of all the fields you want/need, such as first and last names, email addresses and more and then use zmprov to feed that info into ZCS.

    You would first use "zmprov createAccount ..." using a dummy password to populate the ZCS' ldap and then "zmprov modifyAccount userpassword ..." to set the actual password you extracted from your original LDAP in its encrypted form.

    Be advised that some password encryption methods won't let you, or at least give you a hard time, to do this mainly because it's a big security no-no. I've seen it with SSHA and I'm sure it will happen with a few others.
