    Default intro... hi all/ rpath storage/ authentication

    Just wanted to drop a line to everybody here... I've fiddled with this software in the past at a few locations but am now installing it at home to run a few domains.

    using the vmware/rpath install on a suse10.2 box.. seems to be quite ok so far.

    I want to put the volumes (userdata et al) onto another server of mine that has raid drives.. I saw a howto regarding this once, but have been unsucessful at finding it again.

    Lastly Can any other software use the zimbra ldap server? I'd like plone to authenticate users against zimbra.

    Let's say just dealing with the store and index (not all the userdata by any means but it probably takes up the most space).
    shutdown zimbra
    backup your entire /opt/zimbra directory to a safe place (tar it up etc)
    move store and index to say storesave and indexsave.
    Mount the remote filesystems/drives according to your os documentation.
    If you can't mount them with the desired path, create symbolic links to the mount etc so for instance /opt/zimbra/store is a symbolic link to /data (which might be a on a remote machine)
    Move the contents of storesave & indexsave to that mount/remote location.

    Lastly can any other software use the zimbra ldap server? I'd like plone to authenticate users against zimbra.
    search...you might have found: Using Zimbra LDAP for System Auth
    for instance if you want an apache installation to auth against zimbra ldap: LDAP Apache - ZimbraWiki

    For anybody following this thread...


    rpath - nfs

    Until I can increase the vmimage size, I've been symbolically linking certain directories off the zimbra appliance installation and onto the nfs drive.. like redolog (which fills up rather quickly).
