    Default Administrator Account Spontaneously Corrupt

    Hi there, me again.

    Today as I sit and work I get a pop-up from Outlook that Zimbra cannot authenticate me. It is asking for my name and password again.

    I put them in, thinking Outlook is just stupid.

    Nope, doesn't work.

    I close Outlook and attempt to login to the Zimbra Administration webUI like I have done a thousand times... nope. It tells me I am unable to authenticate. Logging to the regular mail interface also throws an error at me that my username or password is incorrect.

    I am quite upset at this, since I am the administrator now I cant read my email OR manage my server.

    I restart Zimbra.

    Still same problem. I use "zmprov gaaa" and see that my account is there, same is it ever was. I run "zmprov sp myemailhere mypasswordthere" and it accepts this.

    I still can't login to either interface.

    Just as I am about to open a support ticket and have fnished looking through the forum and the wiki, Outlook pops up that I have new Email.

    WHA!? I login to the admin panel and it works fine, Outlook / Zimbra / Thunderbird are all working now.

    I don't get how Zimbra first decided my password was wrong, and then after changing it took upwards of 15 minutes before it appears to have accepted the change... perhaps a related symptom?

    Anyway, there is something bad wrong here.

    Anybody have a clue what just happened?

    What's the password lockout options set to? (advanced tab of the account)

    If there was indeed somebody trying to brute force my account (wouldnt be surprised) where is the log stored that shows me the pertinent info, like their IP, etc?

    Cause I really need to find and kill them.
