Good luck with that, Zimbra is tightly integrated with OpenLDAP's features,
some of which OUD does not have. It's not clear to me why you wouldn't
simply use the MMR support already built into Zimbra, or why you'd want to
migrate to an inferior LDAP implementation.
We - LDAP Team - are giving LDAP authentication services to the applications in the
enterprise. Our LDAP services are built onto Oracle ODSEE and OUD products in which we
have experience with 15+ years with, starting with Sun Directory 18 years ago.
Zimbra team asked us if their Zimbra system would use of our Oracle's directory
systems in which we give support only to these directory products. Otherwise they would
operate their new MMR-capable OpenLDAP systems on their own.
It also sounds like you don't fully understand how to properly deploy
Zimbra, as one of its deployment points is that you can deploy its internal
LDAP instances into their own cluster used by the rest of the Zimbra system.
Yes they are able to deploy that clustered MMR OpenLDAP system out of internal OpenLDAP
servers on each Zimbra installation.
Generally there is not going to be discussion on this list on how to
migrate off of OpenLDAP.
Sounds like doing such migration is not going to be easy ;)
Thanks for your reply anyway.
