Cannot add administrator during setup

Hello Experts,

I am trying to use openfire with Zimbra. Initially had lot of issues in connecting to zimbra. Then I managed to connect to Zimbra LDAP and then after finshing the User mapping and Group Mapping, I am getting an option to add Administrator. Here what ever username I give, it shows that the user does not exist. Due to this, I am unable to complete my setup. Guys, anybody has some idea about this? I installed openfire in a windows machine.

Please help.

Thanks in advance.


you may want to enable the ldap debug option as described in the last line of the LDAP Guide.

As Administrator you must specify a normal LDAP user like “Foobar” which does already exist in LDAP - this user will then get admin rights within Openfire.
