    Default external LDAP - users cant log in, why ?

    Hi guys,

    I have problem with external LDAP authorization for users login. When I set authorization to external LDAP all test are passed but when user want to log in he can't.

    Any one had similar problem ?

    P.S. Zimbra version 5.0.10

    did you create the users in zimbra? Zimbra doesn't auto provision a user based on successful ldap authentication. also maybe check your logs on your ldap server and see if it has any errors about the filter you're using.

    so I have to add singe one user manually so that he can log in ? Is there a possibility to sync zimbra users with ldap users ??

    Yeah each account has to be created in zimbra, and the external ldap server will only be used for authentication. If you can create a ldap dump of all your users and their names you could do something like a bulk import. Theres an article about this on the wiki

    Bulk Provisioning - Zimbra :: Wiki

    It doesn't have specific ldap code but it shows you an example of a batch create.
