We have our Openfire Server 3.7.1 setup with vCard enabled scraping from AD.
We use multiple clients including Pandion, Pidgin, and Adium. Of all the clients we use, Spark would be the only one that goes across Windows, Linux, and Mac, that looks and works great. We want to push it, but here’s the issue:
We want our users in conference rooms to have nicknames including Dept and Ext. eg: Jason Smith - Marketing - #4432
We can’t find any place to edit this in spark. If we go to ‘Spark’, ‘Edit my profile’, and change the ‘Nickname’: Server does not support VCards, unable to save your VCard
All other clients have a local setting for Nickname… except Spark. Its VCard or nothing it seems. Are we mistaken? Is there any way users can perform what we’re trying to do?
Option A: We point nickname to AD description field… and this is managed by IT creating a lot of overhead.
Option B: We turn off AD integration… (yeah right. we’d sooner drop the idea of using Spark)
We’d truly, truly appreciate any advise or ideas anyone can offer. Thank you so much in advance!
