    Question Using Windows AD as LDAP server, how to provide Ldap Admin password on installation

    I'm installing Zimbra OSE 8.0.5 on Ubuntu server 12.04. During the install I offer not to install zimbra-ldap, because I want my users information to be managed by a Windows 2008 R2 Active Directory server(dc.home.chj). Then I'm blocked in Zimbra's install script where it require me to provide Ldap Admin password.

    I'm quite confused what password to provide, for the Ldap Admin, the postfix user, and the amavis user.

    And I'm afraid I'm wrong with the LDAP Base DN format.

    Please help.

    You can't do that, all users must be provisioned in the Zimbra LDAP (you could have found this by searching the forums or reading the product documentation) - you must install Zimbra LDAP.. You use the AD server as an external authentication source, read the Administration Guide.

    In future, it would be a good idea to copy/paste the output of the konsole into a forum post (and add code tags) as your image is almost illegible (that's particularly true for anyone that has vision problems).

    Thank you. But if zimbra-ldap is a must, then why does it provide Yes/No option for it in its install script?

    My choice of the optional packages was:
    Select the packages to install

    Install zimbra-ldap [Y] n

    Install zimbra-logger [Y]

    Install zimbra-mta [Y]

    Install zimbra-snmp [Y]

    Install zimbra-store [Y]

    Install zimbra-apache [Y]

    Install zimbra-spell [Y]

    Install zimbra-memcached [N]

    Install zimbra-proxy [N]
    Checking required space for zimbra-core
    Checking space for zimbra-store

    Installing:
    zimbra-core
    zimbra-logger
    zimbra-mta
    zimbra-snmp
    zimbra-store
    ......
