Zimbra auto-provisioining


This article explains how to configure automatic user provisioning, if Zimbra is configured to use external LDAP (Active Directory).  
For more information on how to configure Zimbra with AD, please check the following link: [link]


Solution

1. Create a file with the following entries:

$ vim /tmp/autoprov.txt

md example.com zimbraAutoProvAccountNameMap "samAccountName"
md example.com zimbraAutoProvAttrMap description=description
md example.com zimbraAutoProvAttrMap cn=displayName
md example.com zimbraAutoProvAttrMap givenName=givenName
md example.com zimbraAutoProvAttrMap sn=displayName
md example.com zimbraAutoProvAuthMech LDAP
md example.com zimbraAutoProvBatchSize 40
md example.com zimbraAutoProvLdapAdminBindDn "CN=Administrator,CN=Users,DC=azmo,DC=com"
md example.com zimbraAutoProvLdapAdminBindPassword secret
md example.com zimbraAutoProvLdapBindDn "Administrator@example.com"
md example.com zimbraAutoProvLdapSearchBase "OU=zimbrausers,dc=azmo,dc=com"
md example.com zimbraAutoProvLdapSearchFilter "(cn=%u)"
md example.com zimbraAutoProvLdapURL "ldap://192.168.0.1:389"
md example.com zimbraAutoProvMode EAGER
md example.com zimbraAutoProvNotificationBody "Your account has been auto provisioned. Your email address is ${ACCOUNT_ADDRESS}."
md example.com zimbraAutoProvNotificationFromAddress prov-admin@example.com
md example.com zimbraAutoProvNotificationSubject "New account auto provisioned"
ms server.example.com zimbraAutoProvPollingInterval "1m"
ms server.example.com +zimbraAutoProvScheduledDomains "example.com"


The options are self-explanatory. The ones that you might want to change according to your environment are:

zimbraAutoProvLdapAdminBindDn
zimbraAutoProvLdapAdminBindPassword
zimbraAutoProvLdapSearchBase
zimbraAutoProvLdapURL

For the last two entries starting with ms, you have to use your server's fqdn.


2. Execute the file:

$ zmprov < /tmp/autoprov.txt


To double check that the configuration is working, create a user in AD, and then follow the entries in /opt/zimbra/log/mailbox.log file. To be able to see more, enable [debug].

Ideally you have to see the following output in normal logging mode:
  • before adding entries in AD
2015-07-09 03:22:00,484 INFO [AutoProvision] [] autoprov - Auto provisioning accounts on domain azmo.com
2015-07-09 03:22:00,490 INFO [AutoProvision] [] autoprov - 0 external LDAP entries returned as search result
2015-07-09 03:22:00,490 INFO [AutoProvision] [] autoprov - Auto Provisioning has finished for now, setting last polled timestamp: 20150709022200.488Z
  • after adding new entries
2015-07-09 03:26:00,546 INFO [AutoProvision] [] autoprov - Auto provisioning accounts on domain azmo.com
2015-07-09 03:26:00,553 INFO [AutoProvision] [] autoprov - 1 external LDAP entries returned as search result
2015-07-09 03:26:00,553 INFO [AutoProvision] [] autoprov - auto creating account in EAGER mode: test@azmo.com, dn="CN=test,OU=zimbrausers,DC=azmo,DC=com"

2015-07-09 03:26:00,565 INFO [AutoProvision] [] autoprov - Sleeping for 60000 milliseconds.
