    Question [SOLVED] OpenLDAP Migration to Zimbra's LDAP Version

    List,

    My current OpenLDAP ldap schema is built this way:
    core OpenLDAP Core schema
    cosine RFC1274: Cosine and Internet X.500 schema
    inetorgperson inetorgperson.schema -- InetOrgPerson (RFC2798)
    mozillaAbPersonAlpha
    evolutionperson
    nis This work is part of OpenLDAP Software

    This allows Evolution clients to have full R/W to the directory - standard InetOrgPerson attributes and ones specific to Evolution. However, other clients like Thunderbird can read but not write to all attribute types.

    Questions:

    1. Can I import my current ldif records into Zimbra's version of Ldap?
    2. Will my Evolution & Thunderbird clients be able to read and write to it's custom schema?
    3. What attribute types are available?

    Default

    After reading the Admin guide I have discovered that account address books are not stored in the Zimbra ldap - however I would like to be able to keep my open ldap server running with my customer/client addresses available to my mail clients -

    Any conflicts with running openldap server and zimbra ldap on the same server?

    Yes, they both use port 389.

    Question Importing openldap Addresses into Zimbra

    After reading the Admin guide I have discovered that account address books are not stored in the Zimbra ldap so importing my openldap ldif to zimbra seems like a no go.

    What about importing my current ldap file into a "shared address book" or keep my open ldap server running to give clients access to those addresses.?

    -Any conflicts with running openldap server and zimbra ldap on the same server?

    -Assuming that a shared accounts address book can be usesd - are there permissions issues for adding new contacts by accounts sharing the address book?

    Bill thanks for the quick reply - understand the port issue. Where is the best place to recreate my current (openldap) client address book so it can be shared by all accounts?

    You could try leaving it right where it is and configuring the GAL for your domain to "Both" mode, setting the external LDAP server to your old server.

    Thumbs up OpenLDAP Migration to Zimbra's LDAP Version

    Thanks for the reply,

    I am not sure what you mean by "GAL for your domain to "Both" mode". I did not know GAL can work in different "modes". I'll read through my guides and see what I can find. I understand that GAL is a Zimbra's feature / your company directory.

    If possible give me a few more details so I can search this out.

    The mode 'both' would be internal and external GAL in the Wizard config.
