I am running OpenFire 4.2.1. The JIDs are in format firstname.lastname@example.org.
We changed our domain, the “olddomain” became “newdomain”. “Olddomain” is not in the public DNS anymore.
It would not be a big deal as our employees use Spark which does not care about the domain part of the JID (it needs username, password and server). And we have jabber.olddomain.com in our internal DNS. But I need our users to be accessible from outside (s2s) and it is apparently not possible to use the JID with non-existent domain for this purpose.
So I need to change the domain part of our JIDs to the new domain. At the same time I decided to make the JIDs equal to e-mail addresses (without the “jabber” domain part) as recommended here - FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Now the last thing - changing the JIDs in Openfire. I ran into this thread which is probably relevant here - How can I change my domain? . But the information in this thread is sort of brief. So I am going to set false in my openfire.xml and restart the service.
- Do I understand it right that I will be able to log in to the Openfire web configuration using my current admin password?
- Will the setup wizard offer me current settings so I could change only the xmpp domain?
- All user accounts will stay intact?
