I've been tasked to incorporate Zimbra into our existing OpenLDAP and I'm having a bit of a trouble. Here's the situation, let me know if anything is unclear:
We have OpenLDAP set up for our existing domain, abc.com. We have two main groups of accounts inside the directory - ou=people,dc=abc,dc=com and ou=staff,dc=abc,dc=com. If possible, I would like to connect Zimbra to the ou=staff,dc=abc,dc=com accounts so only staff members could access Zimbra.
I'm using ZCS 5.0.2 GA, downloaded yesterday from Zimbra.
When I first installed ZCS (it was 5.0.1 at the time, a few weeks ago), I tried to have Zimbra point to our external LDAP directory, but I couldn't see any LDAP entries once I connected. Perhaps I was overlooking something, because I never got it to work.
Currently I have ZCS set up the default way, and I assigned another domain to it - abc.net. By itself, ZCS is working great with its own LDAP server, but I don't like the though of having two LDAP servers.
Has anyone successfully integrated Zimbra into an existing OpenLDAP directory?
Thanks in advance.
