    Default Similar domains in native Zimbra LDAP and external LDAP

    Hello, folk.

    Really tired to search Google for a two days. Need an assistance.
    I have fresh installation of Zimbra 7.2.0 on CentOS 6.

    On installation step I set domain example.com (name is changed). So now I login as admin@example.com both to mailbox and admin panel and everything seems to be working.
    But I have external LDAP (Oracle DSEE7) which contains all the example.com users. Ant I set domain authentication to External LDAP. On wizard's step I tested my own user and test were successful.

    But when I logout from admin@example.com mailbox dashboard and try to login michael.a@example.com (my user) the LDAP query goes not to external LDAP but to Zimbra's LDAP. And of cause query returns no user. Login failed.

    Two questions:
    1) How can I switch query to external LDAP?
    2) If I switch successfully, how will I login under no corporate user admin@example.com with admin privileges?

    In you two days of searching these forums you din't find any information relating to the fact that you need to provision users on the Zimbra server even if you use external authentication? It has been covered many times.
