Zimbra LDAP Service

Zimbra LDAP Service
LDAP directory services provide a centralized repository for information about users and devices that are authorized to use your Zimbra service. The central repository used for Zimbra’s LDAP data is the OpenLDAP directory server.
Note:
VMware Zimbra Collaboration Server supports integration with Microsoft’s Active Directory Server. Contact support for information on specific directory implementation scenarios.
The LDAP server is installed when ZCS is installed. Each server has its own LDAP entry that includes attributes specifying operating parameters. In addition, a global configuration object sets defaults for any server whose entry does not specify every attribute.
A subset of these attributes can be modified through the Zimbra administration console and others through the zmprov CLI utility.
