    Default Import LDIF to ZCS

    Hi,

    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?


    Thanks.

    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.

    Hi Bill,

    It is just for testing. This LDIF belongs to an old server. I have to import the user account details to new "test" server. As I said, I am new to Zimbra, hence please help me.

    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.
