I’ve installed openfire 3.8.1 for testing purposes on Windows 7 64bit.
I Try to connect it to my Active Directory.
During the initial Setup on the “Profile Settings” Page, I chose “Directory Server (LDAP)”.
On the “Profile Settings: Connection Settings” I enter the correct connection properties.
I click on “Test Settings” an nothing happens!
I have an old 3.5 Openfire Installation on another internal Server. When I click “Test Settings” there, I get a Conenction Successfull Alert.
It seems other people have this Problem too:
What exactly can I do for testing my connection?
I tried Openfire 3.7.1 as this seems to do the connection test.
On Page “Profile Settings: User Mapping” I enter Username as “sAMAccountName”.
What I want to do is to filter out disabled accounts.
The correct LDAP Filter seems to be “(&(objectClass=User)(userAccountControl:1.2.840.1135126.96.36.1993:=2))”
I’ve checked it with an native LDAP Client. It works, the filter is correct.
But openfire does not show any Users!
I’ve traced the connection to my AD with wireshark. If I click on “Test Settings” I get a LDAP bindRequest and after a successfull bind followed directly with an unbind. It seems no ldapsearchrequest was done.
Maybe openfire cannot handle the logical NOT in my LDAP-Filter?
I’ve searched through the forum an found this thread from 2006:
Even if I just click next, OK, Continiue and so on and after the settings should be written my openfire.xml is nearly empty so I cannot add the lines for an negative filter manually.
How can I test my LDAP Connection on Openfire 3.8.1?
How can I filter out disabled Users on Openfire 3.8.1?
How can I add a Userfilter with a logical NOT on Openfire 3.8.1?
Any help would be nice?
