    Default anonymous ldap query

    I've been wrestling with getting Zimbra to offer up address suggestions to Thunderbird without any luck. I can get softerra to work (shows all uid), providing I enter in the Credentials for Principal: (uid=zimbra,cn=admins,cn=zimbra) and the Password: (found using zmlocalconfig -s | grep ldap).

    I get no results from ldapsearch (using my workstation) -H ldap://<ipaddress> -x -b "dc=<zimbradomain>,dc=org".
    Thunderbird address book entry has Base DN: ou=people,dc=<zimbradomain>,dc=org Port:389 Bind DN: uid=zimbra,cn=admins,cn=zimbra

    Am I missing something obvious? Is my caffeine level insufficient? Do I have to enable something to allow anonymous ldap queries?

    any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Anonymous LDAP binds are disabled by default. There is a tool that will edit the ldap acls to allow anonymous binds, zmldapanon, in the libexec dir.

    Here is some of the Zimbra wiki documentation on the topic: Ajcody-LDAP-Topics - Zimbra :: Wiki

    Once you run /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmldapanon -e, you should be able to browse the ldap directory without authenticating.
