    Default Zimbra multidomain administration

    Hi i'm new in this forum.

    I'm using and administring the new Zimbra 7 Network Edition and I've some questions about Multi Domain Administration:

    1 - I've enabled a user to be and Admin for multiple domains. To do this, i've created a Distribution List (administrator), associated that accpunt to this list and added the right domainAdminConsoleRights for each domain I want.

    i.e.: user: user@domain1.org -> Admin distribution list: dl@domain1.org
    domains: domain1.org, domain2.org, domain3.org - each domain has "Maximum number account per COS" - cos01, cos02, cos03

    dl@domain1.org have grants domainAdminConsoleRights to all these domains.

    Question: How can user@domain1.org have grant to change account COS within the limits for each domain?

    2 - Is there the possibility to set "Number Accounts Limit" not for single domain, but global for -n domains?

    i.e. I have domain1.org, domain2.org, domain3.org and I want to set a global limit for all domains (20 account with "cos01", 10 account "cos02", 5 account "cos03").

    I'm sorry for my bad English

    awaiting feedback

    Best regards

    The short answer is I that I don't know for sure the answers to your questions!

    I don't believe however that (to try to answer your question 1) you can set ranges or limits for variables within a COS and then have a Domain Admin change settings within that range. Making changes to COS variables in our experience requires the Zimbra Administrator authority. In our case as a Zimbra Hosting Partner, our invoicing is based entirely on COS -- we don't want the domain admins to be able to change variables in each COS (like quota!).

    As for question 2., if you have a lot of domains you can do this via the commandline. Again, not sure why you would want a domain admin to be able to change a variable like max number of accounts for the domain.

    If I can take a guess, it sounds like you you are trying to create a new Administrator type: a user with more authority than a plain Domain Admin (and for multiple domains), but who can't make big system changes like the super Administrator can. Yes?

    If you can say what specific COS variables you want the domain admins to have limited authority to change, then we or someone else might be able to help. But again, these permissions were architected with Zimbra customers like ISPs, HSPs, Universities etc. in mind, where the domain admins typically have no authority to change too much that could impact resource usage or major system functionalities.

    Sorry I don't have full answers to your questions!

    All the best,
    Mark

    Thanks Mark, you're very kind

    1 - i.e. If a domain has limit of 3 accounts for COS1, 5 for COS2 and 7 for COS3, the domain administrator should be able to choose one of these COS within the limits.

    Right?
