    Default Alternate ldap port setup?

    I'm trying to test out Zimbra on my Mac OS X server. I don't want to use the ldap server that comes with OS X ("Open Directory") which is running on port 389.

    The ldap port I specified in zmsetup.pl apparently is ignored by the time the /opt/zimbra/bin/ldap start script is called. In my system.log I see:

    COMMAND=/opt/zimbra/openldap/libexec/slapd -l LOCAL0 -4 -u zimbra -h
    ldaps:// ldap://:389/ -f /opt/zimbra/conf/slapd.conf

    The :389 seems to be hardcoded in the script.

    Also a call to zmlocalconfig shows that ldap_port, ldap_url and ldap_master_url still point to port 389.

    Anyone successfully create a zimbra ldap server running on a port other than 389?

    Easy way out is just shut down your open directory. It's not too easy to change the Zimbra LDAP port.

    I'm having this exact same problem.

    I'm int he middle of an evaluation process for a company, to decide wheter or not start using Zimbra. They already use an open directory, and i can't change/shut down it.

    Isn't there a way to change the Zimbra LDAP port, at all?

    Not via config. You'd need edit several config files. This is a reasonable ask, since several folks may want to co-install with an existing LDAP. It should be filed in bugzilla. I don't see a bug in bugzilla. Feel free to file one and vote for it.

    I think we actually ask for the port during the install, and ignore what's entered...

    If it's not too much trouble could you tell me which files to edit?
    I tried editing the ones that specified the port 389 under the /conf folder, but it didn't work.

    Is just that reporting it to bugzilla probably won't solve the problem in the immediate future.

    Thanks

    Default Opposite question

    If I install Zimbra on Mac OS X Server 10.4 (a.k.a. Tiger) I want the following functionality

    1) Install Zimbra on Tiger Server

    2) Use Server Admin interface to create Users in Open Directory

    4) Zimbra by default uses the Open Directory LDAP info to Authenticate or Create Users in Zimbra

    and If Open Directory is on on the Mail server can Zimbra coexist with it ?

    Thanks

    You can't use Open Directory as the Zimbra LDAP today. It should be possible to coexist but as you can see, there is at least one report of it not being able to install if port 389 is taken.

    Default config files

    We've already installed ZCS and it's working great, but we'd like to install our own LDAP on port 389 and let Zimbra keep it's own LDAP on another port. That ebing said, does anyone know what files to change to get Zimbra's LDAP to another port other than 389?

    I've tried a few things without any success. I gather Zimbra isn't recommending changing the ports at this point.

    It should be just a change at install time or via config. That said there are reports this doesn't work so seems a few things are still hard coded to 389. If you find them or narrow them down please drop a bug in bugzilla.
