I know there are numerous similar threads and I’ve looked through a few and found nothing that seems to help me, so forgive me if this is repeated elsewhere and I just gave up too soon.
I have OpenFire installed and working with Spark clients across a Windows 2003 domain with XP clients (and staff love it! There is probably no going back now ). I have integrated OpenFire with AD (we are a school so I have limited the user integration within the staff/admin OU to exclude the students from the system - for obvious reasons).
The initial integration seemed to go fine and everyone who has tried can log in and chat away. However, whenever something subsequently changes in the AD it does not seem to update the OpenFire database - the main thing being passwords. When a user’s password expires (GPO settings) and they change it they can not log into Spark with the new password but must use the old one. Also, user details (first name, surname, display name) are not updated when they are changed.
