Book Release: Openfire Administration

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41lJkkJ-t6L._SL500_BO2,204,203,200_AA219_PIsitb-sticker-dp-arrow,TopRight,-24,-23_SH20_OU01_.jpgA great book about installing and administering Openfire has been released: Openfire Administration, by Mayank Sharma (a contributing editor at Linux.com). Some of the topics covered:

  • Installing Openfire
  • Administration of server settings and users
  • Integration with Active Directory and LDAP
  • Tuning Openfire for large numbers of users and high performance
  • Enterprise features like logging and auditing
  • Much more…

So far, I’ve only just started reading through the book in detail. The writing seems to be clear and detailed, while keeping a light-hearted tone. I also love the fact that the author includes lots of pictures – it makes understanding some of the administration tasks much simpler.

We’re thrilled to see the first book about an Igniterealtime Open Source project. If you get a chance to check it out, please let us know what you think.

Im curious how well it covers the topic of SSO and Kerberos- does it devote much to that?

I just received my copy of the book and while I haven’t read it yet I can say that Kerberos is not referenced in the index and SSO is only mentioned in passing.

I too have received my copy of the book and SSO and Kerberos are not covered in any detail at all. It also still refers to openfire as both opensource and commercial. It is a very good guide for basic setups though. The biggest fault I see with it and so many other documents on deploying openfire is that it leads people down the path of using the embedded database. I am aware that many people have used it with little or no problems, be when problems do arise then your hands are tied. External databases give much more flexibility in disaster prevention and recovery.

The book uses the embedded db to get started but has a section on how to use MySQL and PostgreSQL for large scale deployments.

Openfire v3.5.2
