    Default LDAP password

    Need some help!

    I'm trying to get Zimbra working after a restore and the startup fails when starting ldap. It's prompting for the ldap password. I have no idea what it is and can't find any saved configuration files from the original install.

    I've tried changing the ldap password with:
    Code:
    zmldappasswd --root newpass
    zmldappasswd newpass
    but it just prompts me for the password when I type that command.

    How do I fix this?

    edit: The output of the first command is:

    Code:
    Updating local config
    Stopping ldap
    slapd not running
    Updating ldap configuration
    Starting ldap
    Password:

    Are you trying to simply start zimbra?

    Yes, when I run zmcontrol start it begins to start the ldap service and prompts for a password:

    Code:
     Starting ldap...Password:

    Are you running zmcontrol start as Zimbra or Root?

    Not sure it matters though. I think it's a FS Permissions issue.

    A bit more info...

    I seem to get this in /var/log/messages when running "service zimbra restart"

    "authentication failure; logname=james uid=0 euid=0 tty=pts/1 ruser= rhost= user=zimbra"

    so could this be a problem with the zimbra user? I didn't think there was a password set for this user?

    Default Solved!

    Solved:

    I fixed the /etc/sudoers file and pointed the path references there to the appropriate postfix version directory
