The subject doesn’t explain this well, I apologize. I’ll try to explain it better here. I’ve got an Openfire 4.3.2 server using LDAP auth. We are using Spark 2.8.3.
Our Active Directory\LDAP logins are different than our display names, they are just numbers. When I have the server set to use the SAMname for the account name and users message a co-worker all they see is the number until both parties add each other to the personal contact list.
When I set the server to use the AD display name as the login, the name shows up in the contact list right off. The problem here is we need them to log into spark with their AD number, not their display name.
Any thoughts and help is appreciated.
