I can't add members to a shared group with Clustering enabled

I am not really testing clustering as I only have a single instance of Openfire 3.4.0, but I enabled it anyway just to see. I have noticed that when I try to add uses to a shared group, I get a message saying that the user(s) are not registered. When I disable clustering, I can add users as normal.

Has anyone noticed this, or is this normal behaviour and I am missing something?



this looks like a bug, I also get this error running a cluster. Creating (empty) groups works fine. Adding users to a group fails with “User(s) not added successfully. foobar is not a registered user.”


Hey guys,

Thanks for the bug report.

  1. Could you enable the debug log and tell me the exception you see when adding a new group member? BTW, I just changed the code to print a warn rather than a debug.

  2. Are you seeing other problems with shared groups or is it just adding new users that is not working for you?

I just checked in a fix for this problem. Update your copy from SVN and let me know if you are still seeing some problems with groups or shared groups.

Thanks and good catch.

Hi Gato,

I prefer a small jar or zip file to download which replaces an existing file, it’s more easy for me and probably also for other users.

I could just confirm this error and did not look at shared groups so far, so it seems that the QA document could be extended by a few tests regarding shared groups.
