ZIMBRA + AD - account name different than email

Postby bkowalski72 » Thu Feb 09, 2017 1:23 pm

Hello,

I'm trying to solve following issue:

ZIMBRA uses AD as external authenticaton service. I need to autoprov accounts.

AD account is test1
email address for this account is sales1@domain.com

Is it possible to automatically create ZIMBRA account test1 with default email address set to sales1@domain.com?

Thanks in advance for answers

Zimbra account usually is email address itself, but for external auth you can map ldap/ad search query based on your AD account. So in your case, create Zimbra Account/Email address with sales1@domain.com and then on external auth, map the uid on Zimbra into email address on AD
