Get the latest nightly build of JM:[/b]
LDAP group support was added recently. So go and get any build prior to 7/19/2005 from http://www.jivesoftware.org/nightly.jsp.
When upgrading from a previous version of JM:[/b]
If you used groups in your previous installation you will need to clear the table ‘‘jivegroupprop’’ in your database server.
Also remember that when upgrading from a previous version you should check to see if there are any SQL scripts that you need to run.
Edit your jive-messenger.xml file:[/b]
The provider section of the XML file is the only section that must be edited when dealing with Active Directory, other XML properties are optional. The provider section of your XML file should read as follows:
This search filter will populate all groups whose name starts with ‘‘jive’’. So a group that is named ‘‘jiveSupport’’ would be populated but a group named ‘‘support’’ would not be populated. Remember that you can change the display name that will be displayed in the client later. I recommend that you be as specific as possible when creating your search filter so JM isn’'t doing more work than it has to. Here is another example search filter that specifies three specific groups to be populated by jive: Example:
Regardless of the search filter that you choose you must include member= somewhere in the search filter. An example LDAP section of the JM XML file is given below:
localhost 389 sAMAccountName cn mail CN=Users,DC=example,DC=com example\jive jabber
Configure groups inside of the Admin Console:[/b]
Inside of the admin console click on ‘‘Users/Groups’’ and then click on ‘‘Group Summary’’. You should see all of the groups specified by your search filter here. Configure each group with a display name and choose roster preferences for each group by clicking on the group name.
If you get stuck or have any questions let me know.
