Hey all,

As some of you may or may not know, I'm working on a build of a Zimbra server that's a little off the beaten path. In order for me to ask for help in the forums it seems like it would be helpful to provide some additional information.

I intend to transition my current clients away from MS-SBS (Small Business Server) with the solution laid out in Gregs write-up for making Zimbra/OpenLDAP/Samba work together; see the solution here: UNIX and Windows Accounts in Zimbra LDAP and Zimbra Admin UI

Here's some background:

1) I am always working from the latest software:
     *CentOS 5.4 x86_64
     *ZCS Version: Release 5.0.19_GA_3083.RHEL5_64_20090918151416 CentOS5_64 NETWORK edition
2) I am working from a slim install of the latest version of CentOS 5. Here are some loose install notes:
     * --nobase is designated in the kickstart file.
     * We're installing only the packages necessary for all required applications and their dependencies.
     * And some additional utilities.
3) We are using shell scripts to automate the install of the aforementioned solution. I know, I know...
   next time we use perl!
4) For all scripts that need to modify Zimbra:
     *The setuid bit is set (for example) to 4744 so the scripts run as the user zimbra, and
     *They have all been chown'd to zimbra.root.
