    Question Two external LDAP's, one for lookups only

    Hi,

    I apologize if this has been asked and answered. The search tool above seems to kick me out of the forums.

    We have two external ldap's. for one, we cannot 'sync' it (its not ours), we can only do lookups. We've been struggling for a couple weeks with it.

    Is there a way to configure via command line, a ldap for lookups only?

    Thanks.

    Rick

    I don't really understand a) why you're using two external LDAP server and b) why you think Zimbra makes any changes to it. Zimbra uses an external LDAP for authentication and for everything else it uses it's internal LDAP - what is it you're trying to achieve? The simple answer also would be that you can only use one external LDAP for authentication.

    Hi, no. We disabled the internal directory, and are using our own external system LDAP. In addition we want to do 'lookups' to another external LDAP, but we were told we cannot sync it, do lookups only. Does that make sense?

    No, it doesn't make sense to me. You can't 'disable the internal directory', the Zimbra LDAP instance is used by Zimbra for other things than just storing email account details. As I've already said, you can use en external LDAP (or AD server) for authentication by configuring it in the Admin UI but you can only use one external LDAP. I also don't understand what you mean by "...sync it..." - what exactly are you trying to sync it with and why?

    Well. I guess its complicated

    We are authenticating to an external LDAP. We are also using a different LDAP as an external LDAP for the system address book. We now want to incorporate another external LDAP, but because we are not allowed to sync it, we only get 200 names from it.

    zmgsautil forceSync -a galsync@jud.state.ma.us -n <LDAP-name> does not work, as we are not allowed to sync that ldap. is there a way or command to do lookups only?
