    Default [SOLVED] Alias bulk provisioning?

    Not sure about this function, it does not seem to work? It imports the CSV into an account, not an alias. So this is what I have in active directory that I need to replicate:

    Username is first initial last name, like:
    jknight

    Primary email address is different, however:
    jasonk

    Don't ask me why it's our policy to do it this weird way, but they did it and now it looks like I will have to create each of these aliases by hand? I want users to login with their active directory credentials, which requires me to set up the account using the sAMAccountName field, rather than the mailnickname field. I was hoping that bulk provisioning for aliases was possible, but you would think the CSV format would be different, such as:

    alias,destination account

    The bulk provisioning in this area doesn't make sense to me.

    Also we will be hosting more than one domain, and I understand aliases should be automatically created there, but what I'm talking about here is the primary domain.

    OK, I can add aliases by hand if necessary for the same domain, I'll deal with that. But I do also need to add additional domains Zimbra will be responsible for, and it would be good if Zimbra would add the alias to the main user account automatically? I've set up a new domain, and it does not add the alias automatically for each user.

    I can see that adding the domain alias will do what I want using "zmprov cad aliasdomain.com domain.com". I would rather see the alias under the user account as I'm accustomed to in Exchange however. Will have to add the strange naming convention aliases for the primary domain by hand it seems, unless anyone has any better idea.
