    Zimbra COS's

    I have my users created on my Zimbra install, and wondered - how do I bulk assign these users to a certain COS?

    Surely it's not feasible to do 700 users one by one?

    Cheers,

    As per a previous DM, my import script sets the COS at creation/modification time based on properties in AD. As you've already imported them, you will probably have to create a script that assigns it to each user.

    Have you seen this? Zimbra Active Directory Sync

    What kind of properties? Could it do something like:

    "IF USERNAME BEGINS WITH NUMBER THE USER IS A STUDENT AND ASSIGN TO STUDENT USER ELSE USER IS STAFF AND ASSIGN TO STAFF"?

    As you can do that with VBScript and/or Perl, then yes.
