By far, one of the most common problems in getting a service started is an incorrect 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!
