Resetting LDAP & MySQL Passwords
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.
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:
Make sure you use the same password for both!
Resetting the Logger Password
In the event you have lost your logger password (or it has otherwise become out of sync), you can reset it. Keep in mind that the logger is not a required component to have running.
You will need to start the logger with the "skip-grant-tables" option. Search the forums on who to accomplish this.
