    Default How do I install zmprov on a remote server?

    I'd like to install zmprov on an HPUX machine so I can do provisioning from there.

    What do I need to do to install zmprov there?

    IMHO you wont be able to. Why not use SOAP via PHP/Perl ?

    Are you saying I can't do it on HPUX? Or on any remote server?

    I thought it would be easier to create scripts that use the zmprov command rather than having to use PHP/Perl to create all the SOAP requests.

    I thought zmprov was designed to use the SOAP API and could therefore be used from a remote server. Isn't this true?

    zmprov is a wrapper for java code. So you could always try compiling ZCS on HP-UX

    I personally would not even try, I am a HP-UX consultant, and would look to doing it through PHP so you can web enable your hand rolled code.

    I use SSH keys, scp, and remote SSH execution to run commands from my other server. Set up keys so there's no password, scp over scripts, and use SSH to run the script.

    I'd love to be able to use Perl, but the only Perl module I've seen is ZimbraSession.pm, which appears to include only Folder and Appointment provisioning. I'd prefer not to write all of the SOAP requests myself. I'd also prefer NOT to use PHP.

    Is there a Perl module which I'm missing?

    What about getting zmprov to work on a regular linux box? Does that also require installing all of ZCS just to be able to do remote provisioning with zmprov?

    Thanks, this will be a helpful alternative to having zmprov on a separate box.

    This is how I like doing it, too. IMHO, I don't like giving full access to zmprov straight through the passwordless ssh session, but rather giving it access to scripts which execute specific zmprov commands.. Like "zScript-createuser.sh" which takes arguments and creates a user. Safer, in my opinion.
