German umlauts in passwords with ActiveDirectory

Hi there,

we’‘re using OpenFire with Spark here. I’'ve set OpenFire to use our ActiveDirectory for authentication etc.

The problem: If a user has an umlaut in his domain password then he’'s not able to log into spark.

Is that a known issue? How can I solve it?



Hi Aleks,

JM-694 is the open issue, you may want to register also within the issue tracker http://www.igniterealtime.org/issues/secure/Signup!default.jspa and vote for this issue to be resolved.

So currently you’'ll need to write a patch to solve it, not sure if you like to do so.
