    Default Install Zimbra with Novell NDS

    Hi,

    Im trying to install Zimbra 7.2.0_GA_2669.FOSS using an external Ldap. My ldap provider is the Novell NDS
    that is installed in an OES 2.2.

    I have some doubts about the configuration of "LDAP Filter" and "LDAP search base". Im trying to use the "uid" field
    as an identifier of my users. All my users/clients has the field configured correctly.

    My dn/user is correct, the connection tests works.

    I cant search the Novell NDS/LDAP for user authentication. I think the option is not ok.

    My dn/user used to connect is in a context, and the users in other. Something like this:

    o=conect1 ==> user/dn

    o=conect2 ==> login to users

    Both contexts are in the top of my Novell NDS/LDAP.

    I read the manuals, and tried all the options there I found, but none of them worked.

    How can Zimbra be configured to use Novell NDS/LDAP ?

    Thanks.

    your ldap filter should be

    Code:
    (uid=%u)
    the search base of o=conect2 should be fine

    Thanks BDial for your reply. This is what Ive done. The base dn is OK, the test runs OK, but when I try a connection Zimbra doesnt find my user. I made a test with the user that I use with DN, and even this user cant login. The server connects with my ldap server, I dont have any kind of restriction. I put a screen of my options:

    Ive found whats the problem. The Novell is only an authentication server, and not a repository to import. I created an account, and the login was successful. Can I put more than one context on my ldap search ?
