It gets weirder.
When will the server update the clients? When they logoff and logon again? Is it better to reset the cache or to restart the service? What about the clientside vcard files - when are they being updated/deleted? I have thrown them away a couple of times today but to no avail.
My users are able to logon but i noticed that no information at all showed up in the vcard/profile.
I set up a second server and for a moment i was able to get some information, a useful vcard (still no picture - but i am going to put this aside for now).
I have three users who reported to me during the day that they were trying to send a message to a colleague who never responded. Thing is, he never got the message. All three the guys thought while looking at their client that they were online, when in fact the client or server seemed to have lost the connection. This makes them and me nervous. I have seen OF installations that were reliable but this one - i dont know what it is.
Is there a performace prob when OF runs on virtual machines?
I will test some more tomorrow, but right now i growing a grey hair.
