[SOLVED] AD Users cannot login

Postby acelmanaged » Wed Mar 30, 2011 6:15 am

Hi,



My test environment is a VMWare Workstation with three virtual machines.

1. Windows 2008 AD Server

2. RedHat 6 ZCS Server

3. Windows 7 Client



I have configured authentication for the domain and managed to create two users in ZCS and link them to the users in AD fine.



However when my users try to either navigate to the Webclient or by using Zimbra desktop they are unable to log in to the account using any combination of username/email addresses.



If I am logged on as admin I am able to click the View Mail button to see their inbox.



I have logged a support request with Zimbra for this however they are researching the problem and time is ticking away on my trial.



Any additional help would be greatly appreciated :)

Oh that bit! Here you go:



ou=martinb,ou=Users,dc=acel,dc=co



Is the "ou=martinb" correct?

try to write there:

martinb@acel.co
Just to make sure:

martinb is your user in AD ? and acel.co is your Domain ?

[quote]try to write there:

Just to make sure:

The username is martinb and acel.co is my domain.



Just for reference I have tried the following:



uid=martinb

ou=martinb

uid=martinb@acel.co

userPrincipalName=martinb@acel.co



However when I try what you suggest on its own it works when I type the whole email address in i.e: martin.ball@acel.co is this the correct behaviour as I would really like to just have to type the username i.e: martinb?

you must have miss understood me.
i want you to write martinb@acel.co in zimbra administration in your account settings in field externat LDAP account to authentication (it is in Password section).
then try to login as user martin.ball (as i suppose it is your email address) with password from AD in WebMail
