== Resetting the LDAP Password ==
 
First, we need to make sure that Zimbra is stopped.
 
 
 
Try running:
 
 
 
> su zimbra
 
 
 
> zmcontrol stop
 
 
 
Just to be safe, you can make sure that all Zimbra services are stopped:
 
 
 
> ps auxww | grep zimbra
 
 
 
> ps auxww | grep slapd
 
 
 
 
 
Kill any left over processes.
 
 
 
Now, we can reset the passwords:
 
 
 
First the root(note: these are run as user zimbra)
 
 
 
> zmldappasswd --root '''newpass'''
 
 
 
Next the zimbra:
 
 
 
> zmldappasswd '''newpass'''
 
 
 
Make sure you use the same password for both!

Set ''newpassword'' to your desired password.  Run as user ''zimbra'':
 
 
 
  > zmmypasswd --root newpassword
 
 
 
'''zimbra account'''
 
 
  > zmmypasswd newpasswd

'''In the event you have lost your logger password, or it has otherwise become out of sync after an upgrade, you can reset it. Keep in mind that the logger is not a required component to have running.'''
 
 
 
'''root account'''
 
 
 
Set ''newpassword'' to your desired password.  Run as user ''zimbra'':
