    Default GAL / External / Active Directory Setup Issue

    Here is my setup
    - Zimbra 5.0 - network edition
    - Active Directory - Domain Name = friestedt.local
    - email domain on Zimbra = friestedt.com

    Here is the my setup on GAL
    1) Server Type - Active Directory
    2) External Server Name - ldap://192.168.1.151:3268 (IP of AD server)
    3) ldap search string - dc=friestedt,dc=local (not sure if is should end in local or com - please confirm)
    4) Use DN/Password to bind to external server - not checked. Should this be checked? If so, what do I use for Bind DN?
    5) Use GAL search settings for GAL is checked.
    6) GAL sync setting - search setting - not sure what to use.

    There seem to be too many open questions for me to isolate any one issue to figure this out on my own.

    Thx,
    Drew

    The answers to the questions you are asking would be provided by whoever manages your AD installation. Some useful information is in the wiki:

    I've reviewed those and still have issues. Here is my setup exactly.

    Under "Configure Authentication" - which works fine, here is my setup

    Authentication mechanism: External Active Directory
    LDAP bind DN template: %u@friestedt.local
    LDAP URL: ldap://192.168.1.151:3268

    Under "GAL" which is not working, here is my setup:
    1) Server Type - Active Directory
    2) External Server Name - ldap://192.168.1.151:3268 (IP of AD server)
    3) ldap search string - dc=friestedt,dc=local
    4) I've checked Use DN/Password.
    4a) Bind DN = administrator@friestedt.local
    4b) I supply the administrator password to the 2003 server
    5) Use GAL search settings for GAL is checked.
    6) GAL sync setting search term is set to: dc=friestedt,dc=local

    When I hit "Test" I'm getting
    GAL search test failed

    where am I going wrong here?


    PS - My AD domain is friestedt.local and the mail domain on Zimbra is friestedt.com.

    I was able to configure it to work with AD by selecting LDAP as the server type.

    LDAP Filter is: (&(|(cn=%s*)(sn=%s*)(gn=%s*)(mail=%s*)))
    Autocomplete Filter is: (|(cn=%s*)(sn=%s*)(gn=%s*)(mail=%s*))
    LDAP Search Base is: dc=friestedt,dc=local

    However, after I add users to Zimbra (including name, email address, etc...) who authenticate through AD they do not show up in the Global Contact List when using the web client. Any ideas? I think someone else reported this issue - New user created in active directory does not show up in zimbra web mail client GAL . Is this a real problem or is my setup wrong?
