Import LDIF to ZCS
I am new to Zimbra. For testing purpose, I have just installed ZCS Open Source Edition 8 and also configured some user accounts. Mail sending and receiving are working fine between mail accounts. Now, I have to import one LDIF to ZCS. Can somebody please help and explain me the procedure?
Why, what are you trying to do? It's actually not a good idea to modify the Zimbra LDAP, you may break your server and your changes will not be guaranteed to remain intact after any upgrade.

As Bill stated its not a good Idea to import external ldif into Zimbra Ldap but still if you are hell bent and want to try check

I think I did not explain it well. Actually, I have to import user accounts from LDIF file to ZCS.
You shouldn't import directly from LDIF to the LDAP server, as ZCS sets a number of bits on accounts when they are created that would get bypassed by a direct LDIF import.
