    Default GAL w/AD setup issue

    Hi there,

    I've read various posts on this forum from people having issues with getting the GAL working with AD in that the setup authenticates ok but no results come back during the test.

    Well, I'm having this same issue, and I've not seen a definitive solution as most people say that it 'just started working'

    I've got a single domain AD setup and the Authentication in Zimbra setup with no issues.

    My GAL setup settings:

    GAL mode: External
    Most results returned by GAL search: 100
    Server type: Active Directory
    LDAP filter: ad
    Autocomplete filter: adAutoComplete
    LDAP search base: dc=domain
    LDAP URL: ldap://server.domain:389
    Bind DN: cn=Administrator,cn=users,dc=domain

    I've tried various search queries, from just a name to cn=* or cn=a* but with no results.

    If I run the following on the cli, I get the expected results back:

    ldapsearch -v -b "dc=domain" -h server.domain -D cn=administrator,cn=users,dc=domain -w password -x "(cn=*A*)"

    I've tried restarting all services via zmcontrol stop|startup without any success.

    I'm running v4.5.

    Any ideas??

    Also, my LDAP authentication settings:

    Authentication mechanism: External Active Directory
    LDAP bind DN template: %u@domain
    LDAP URL: ldap://server:389

    I've tried both the hostname and IP of the PDC, I get successful test results back from this setup, it's just when trying to setup the GAL that I'm getting any issues.

    I've searched through the forums here and read the wiki on LDAP authentication but seeing as a manual ldapsearch with the same details is working fine, I can't see where the problem lies.

    This is proving to be the one thing that's stopping me from putting Zimbra into full testing here so if someone could shed some light on this I'd be extremely grateful.

    I seem to have had a breakthrough on this.

    I switched the Directory type from Active Directory to LDAP and entered (|(cn=*%s*)(sn=*%s*)(gn=*%s*)(mail=*%s*)) as the LDAP filter and the same for the Autocomplete filter.

    Now when I run a query at the end of the wizard I'm getting back the expected results!

    I don't know if there's a problem with having the filters set to 'ad' and 'adAutoComplete' respectively??
