LDAP and autoFollowReferrals

Hello everyone,

I have an issue authenticating Jive with AD. I have a domain, bar.example.com handled by one domain controller, and a sub-domain, foo.bar.example.com, handled by another domain controller, in another location.

Now, if I want to setup a single Jive server for both locations, with LDAP authentication, I thought that the following settings would be enough:

dc.bar.example.com

389

sAMAccountName

cn

mail

dc=bar,dc=example,dc=com

dc=foo,dc=bar,dc=example,dc=com

<adminDN>jabber@bar.example.com</adminDN>

jabberpassword

true

true

Well, it’‘s not. While the server authenticates the users that have accounts into bar.example.com, it doesn’‘t do the same for the users in foo.bar.example.com. In the meantime, the adminDN can query both domains. I tested the search using ldapsearch and it works, it doesn’'t return an authentication error to any query.

Should this be needed, I’'ll post also the exception(s) and other messages.

Can anyone help me ?

Thanks in advance.

Forgot to mention: it’'s a Win2K domain and I am using Jive 2.1.2 on Linux.

Thanks,

Dinu
