I have some more details that may / may not be of help to you regarding what I am witnessing. I got LDAP / AD running fine I believe. I can log in with any user in our AD and it works like a champ. The issue comes when I start creating groups in the Jive Messenger Admin Console. I create some logical groups that are more or less broken down by department. I put some names in them from the respective departments. The way we want things setup with our company is for EVERYONE to have every department listed in their roster. Since this is what we want, this is the Shared Roster Groups options we choose:
Show group in all users’’ rosters.
My assumptions is that this is supposed to make the specified group show up on anyone’'s roster, and thus all the people under that group who I put in there
correct? Well when I make these changes, it only updates your roster with the group you are in (this is the immediate change). So I went ahead and shut down the client and restarted itsame thing. Next step shut down the server and restart it. That almost made it work. Now I have the departments I specified with the respective users in themyay! One big problem, though. I have this new group called “General” that I never created. What is in this General group. Every last item in our active directory that was not placed in one of the departments I created in the admin console. See my above post for an idea of what some of that stuff is. For some reason this group is auto-created and auto-populated only after created shared groups.
I’‘d love to give you more details somehow… maybe in realtime if that’'s possible.
