    Default GAL search Test Failed

    Hi all:
    I am new to Linux and Zimbra, so bare with me on this
    I have Zimbra 5.0.4 on SUSE 10.3 in a test lab on VMWare Server. I also have a Windows 2003 server (Domain Controller) and 2 XP Pro clients with Office 2003 SP3.
    I am trying to do the final configurations and I am getting the error when testing the GAL.
    service Failure
    system failure: unable to search gal
    btpool0-3:1206747375697:d292f851bcbbbfb

    I think the fault is my search term, what is supposed to go there?

    Stance

    What does the following show :-

    Code:
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol status
    Also, if you could check your Log Files - Zimbra :: Wiki for any error messages that would be very useful to use

    These docs have more than their names might suggest:
    Zimbra Directory Service (LDAP) - Zimbra :: Wiki
    LDAP Authentication - ZimbraWiki
    LDAP Active Directory - ZimbraWiki

    For the search base you might only need DC=mydomain,DC=com
    Some AD's need like: cn=administrator,cn=Users,dc=domain,dc=com

    Filter examples:
    (uid=%u)
    or
    (uid=%n)
    or even as complex as: (&(|(cn=*%s*)(sn=*%s*)(gn=*%s*)(mail=*%s*)(zimbraM ai lDeliveryAddress=*%s*) (zimbraMailAlias=*%s*)(zimbraMailAddress=*%s*))(|( objectclass=zimbraAccount)(objectclass=zimbraDistr ibutionList)))

    %n = username with @ (or without, if no @ was specified)
    %u = username with @ removed
    %d = domain as foo.com
    %D = domain as dc=foo,dc=com

    Okay I am trying to gtet my head wrapped around all of this. Gal still doesn't work, but Authentication does. So I believe what is messed up are the filters.
    What would the look like for Private.Lan domain? I have been sheltered and have never had to dig too deeply in to AD or LDAP.

    I am working my way through the WIKI articles.
