    Smile Copy password from AD to Zimbra

    Hi,
    I have Zimbra 7 that is linked to AD (win server 2008) for authentication.
    Now, I want to remove Zimbra from AD. Zimbra will use internal authentication.

    Is it possible to copy passwords from AD and import to Zimbra?

    Thanks million for your help.

    My advice would be to take this opportunity to enforce strong password security (if you don't already have it) and also force a password change on all users. There is a script in the forums that synchronizes AD users with Zimbra but I'm not sure if that has any password sync as well.

    I've searched around this forum but not able to find related post to copy/import passwords from AD to Zimbra.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Resetting 200 user accounts would be a bit problem in our operation.

    AD Passwords are non reversible... You cannot copy or import.

    why not just reset all AD passwords and as suggested above?

    I thought AD password is hashed. Only need to import the hashing to Zimbra.
    ---------------------
    If not possible, then is there a way to bulk reset password in Zimbra?
    It seems that in GUI we only able to reset password one by one.
    1) The generated password is random.
    2) Is it possible to inform users of new generated passwords before reset? Or at least admin should have the file to contains password.

    Thanks so much.
