Zimbra Directory Service

Zimbra Directory Service
The Zimbra LDAP service is a directory service running a version of the OpenLDAP software that has the Zimbra schema already installed. This chapter describes how the directory service is used for user authentication and account configuration and management.
Note: Zimbra also supports integration with Microsoft’s Active Directory Server. Contact Zimbra support for more detailed information on specific directory implementation scenarios.
The LDAP server is identified when ZCS is installed. Each server has its own LDAP entry that includes attributes specifying operating parameters. In addition, there is a global configuration object that sets defaults for any server whose entry does not specify every attribute.
A selected subset of these attributes can be modified through the Zimbra administration console; others can be changed through the CLI utility.
