Is it possible to auto publish contact-list (roster) with server-server

We run two Openfire servers to split IT duties accordingly between two distinct business units, and also such that we can point both to the proper LDAP server for logon authentication. The problem is that we can’t seem to find a way to enable our servers to auto-publish both servers rosters to all users. It’s a hassle for people to go lookup the JabberID and than add the contact manually…Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

some ideas:

  1. you could use connection managers…so that you in fact only using one server.

  2. you could write a plugin that manages contact lists of all users on both servers. Much work, but should be possible.

  3. If at least one server accepts presence subscriptions automatically you could add remote users to a shared group. Take a look on subscription plugin. Never tried it, but if you try to add an remote user to a group this note appears:

  • Note: Remote users or entities should accept presence subscriptions automatically.
