First, let me start by saying what a great piece of software I think Jive Messenger is. I’'ve used three or four flavors of open source servers with Jabber support, and JM is by far the best.
But, I’'m at a bit of a crossroads. I absolutely need to have Active Directory supported in order to prevent my boss from forcing us to move to MS LCS. So my question is when are we going to have “full” integration? To me that means ALL of the following are true:
The ability to authenticate against AD. ( I can alreay do this).
The ability to populate an organization-based roster by using a group defined in AD. (All of my attempts have failed, or failed to stick across time).
If someone has done this and had it work in a production environment, please detail the steps. If this has yet to be achieved, can anyone on the development team remark on where this integration fits in the overall set of priorities for Jove Messenger?
