I’ve researched this topic from posts 2008 and earlier, but in my instance the LDAP refresh issue has just started with 4.0.3. When a user changes their active directory password, OpenFire will no longer allow them to login. Stopping and Re-starting OpenFire does not resolve the issue. When this occurred last month, I had to force an LDAP refresh by actually removing and entering the string connection information. I really don’t want to do this everytime an individual user has a password change. Is there an easier solution that I’m missing?
You are positive this is working fine with 4.0.2 release?
ldap integration in openfire does not cache passwords. Is it possible that your users are using the clients “save password” function?
