One of the most common problems with installing and starting a service is an incorrect LDAP or MySQL password.


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!

Resetting Mailbox Database Passwords

root account

Set newpassword to your desired password. Run as user zimbra:

 > zmmypasswd --root newpassword

zimbra account

 > zmmypasswd newpasswd

Resetting Logger Database Passwords

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:

 > zmmylogpasswd --root newpassword

zimbra account

 > zmmylogpasswd newpasswd
