I have Openfire running on Debian, been running fine for a long time. After I restart the server (assigned more RAM for the VM), I cannot login to chat client or admin console with my personal acc and the “admin” username.
Openfire was setup to authenticate with AD credential.
You have probably changed in your AD during that time (password of that AD user). Maybe it was still running as i had it cached or something. Or you haven’t tried to login after that change. @speedy might help in that case. I think you need to change its password directly in the database now.
yeah…its likely the account used for connecting to ldap has changed…maybe the password expired or the account is locked out. I don’t know if you can change it directly in the database, but you can change the setup flag in the openfire xml to false, and rerun the setup wizard…
Everything you add into that section is imported into database during a startup and then removed from the openfire.xml. This is by design. Btw, you don’t have to do it this way. If you have access to Admin Console, you can just go to Users, edit the user, Edit Properties and mark the Grant admin access to Openfire. Not sure if this still works with LDAP integration.
I deployed a new server (have the original .ova ) doing the setup now, enter LDAP for AD information, test connection success, but fail at the last part of the wizard, the Admin Account.
Cannot add admin, I click on Admin Account again and it give me the option to reset password for “admin”, every password combination fail, tried “admin” “admin”. Skip that step, hoping that I can use “admin” “admin” to login but No.
Yes, I can confirm by browse to admin console login page
And query by: systemctl status openfire.service
Also restart by: systemctl restart openfire.service
Unless there is a different way to run openfire
I even do again with a Debian 9 LAMP, install OpenFire 4.2.3 , connect to my AD, all well and good. Can login admin console, can chat via client. Restart the server, cannot login anymore.
Just repeat the process using Ubuntu 16, install Openfire. , connect to my AD, all well and good. Can login admin console, can chat via client. Restart the server, cannot login anymore. So it is not the OS, must be something to do with how Openfire talk with AD, or the server setting.
