Zimbra LDAP Service

Zimbra LDAP 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:
The LDAP server is installed 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 zmprov CLI utility.
