Importing Groups from AD

My setup consists of Artists in several different OU directories.



| |___Vancouver

| |___Artists

| |___UserAccounts


| |___NY

| |___Artists

| |___UserAccounts




My settings are set up as following:

ldap.groupMemberField -> member

ldap.groupNameField -> OU

ldap.posixMode -> false

All of my users are showing up, and they can all sign in - authentication is working perfectly.

Canada/Vancouver/NY/LA/Artists all show up (This is good as I want Vancouver/LA/NY to be the groups) But they have no members in them, and I am not sure how to get Openfire to recognize that there are users in those groups.

I have security policies that have each member in them, but I am not sure how to get Openfire to recognize those security policies as groups (is this how I am supposed to do this?)

Any help would be much appreciated! I have openfire set up using OpenLDAP authentication but we are switching to AD, and it has become quite an arduous task.



I found an answer to this in the following post:

Re: Active Directory Security Groups Not Showing Up As OpenFire Groups.

The way I have it setup, is that I have a group called “wildfire” i

have all my users and my department groups as members of the “wildfire”

group. Each user is a member of a department group. Below is my AD LDAP


Base DN: dc=company,dc=local

Username Field: sAMAccountName

Userfilter: ((objectCategory=Person)(memberOf=CN=wildfire,ou=company Security Groups,DC=company,DC=local))

Group Field: cn

Member Field: member

Description Field: description

Group Search Filter: (&(objectClass=Group)(memberOf=CN=wildfire,ou=company Security Groups,DC=company,DC=local))

To have contacts automatically show up on login, I had to share each

group to all the users. You do this by logging into the admin console

and clicking on the “user/groups” tab and then click on “Group Summary”

on the left menu.
