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 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.
2) We are using shell scripts to automate the install of the aforementioned solution.
3) 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.
