Okay, to start off… I feel like kind of an idiot for having to post this. I’ve used the Community forum for a while to answer my questions (although this is the first time I’ve posted anything). I’ve set up Openfire on a Windows 2k3 SBS server and it’s been working great for 6 months… but now I’m setting up Openfire on another server and having issues getting it intitially set up. Everyone says it’s an easy setup, and I agree, but I’m having issues with the BaseDN and AdminDN and getting it to recognize my users properly. When I test it on the first set up portion it says successful… but when I test anything after that it errors.
My Domain is a Windows 2003 Server domain, with the following AD setup:
My Domain Name is: Chambers.mpls
My OU where all the Users are contained is: Chambers Users
So, I used this as the BaseDN:
I’ve also tried:
OU=Chambers Users,dc=CHAMBERS.MPLS,dc=local (only just trying it)
For AdminDN I use:
email@example.com (where useraccount is a Domain Admin)
Both of them actually work when I test it, but when I go to the next screen and try to randomly test a user - it errors saying it cannot find a user and consequently when I go to the last step of adding an Admin, no usernames will work. I’ve tried every combination I could think of and verified that the user has access to the baseDN/AD - that username can create users and is a domain admin, etc…
So, I feel stupid that I can’t figure it out, and I’m thinking it’s something easy, but for the life of me I can’t get it going. The only thing I can think of is that there is a space between Chambers and Users in my AD, so I tried putting OU=Chambers_Users, OU=“Chambers Users”, OU=ChambersUsers but none of those worked either.
Anyone have any ideas that I can try or other configurations? I’ve looked through 10’s of pages of posts and for whatever reason I can’t find any more information on what I’m missing. ANY help would be greatly appreciated. I can upload my openfire.xml if I need to, but didn’t yet.
