Just got my zimbra installtion up and running, and I must say I am very pleased and impressed. I can't wait to put this server into production. Quick question though.. with a hopefully simple answer.
I know that it is possible to have zimbra use an external LDAP server for its own authentication... which is great for integrating zimbra into an existing system. My company (which currently does not use any directory services or centralized authentication) is moving to a new location in several weeks, so I have the opportunity to basically design the new network from the ground up... and I would like to use an LDAP server to authenticate users on an Apache server and at Windows / Linux / MacOS login.
Is it possible to use Zimbra's existing LDAP server to acocmplish this, with only having to create one user account in Zimbra (or zmprov)? What modifications will I need to make, if any?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
