    Default Is it possible to make Zimbra connect to remote OpenLDAP / samba?

    Hello everyone,

    I would love to implement Zimbra where i work but we have a legacy infrastructure which might make it a little difficult to do so.

    Basically, i would like to keep our OpenLDAP server as the main user database but would like to use Zimbra's sharing capabilities (ie: address book, documents, etc).

    We currently have an OpenLDAP server which serves as the DB backend for a Samba Server.

    All our servers authenticate against the OpenLDAP server but our windows workstations auth on the Samba Domain.

    We based our setup on the "IDEALX's samba + openldap how to".

    Anybody knows how to integrate both zimbra and a existing OpenLDAP service?

    Thanks in advance,
    Luís Silva

    2014 and the question is unanswered... what about the integration capability?

    I have the same trouble now, lucky it is for test.
    Thanks in advance

    Have a quick look at LDAP Authentication - Zimbra :: Wiki
    Its openLDAP under the hood, so selectively replicating data across the two servers should be doable.

    [zimbra@mail ~]$ zmcontrol -v
    Release 7.2.6_GA_2926.RHEL5_64_20131203115953 CentOS5_64 NETWORK edition.

    yeah hi, thanks. I was just working on it.

    I mean, is a ldap matter, not zimbra.

    Zimbra only use the authentication, but the syncro of ldap tree is apart.
    Thanks in advance
