LDAP setup : Illegal JID

Hello!

I’m having a very similar issue to another thread on here, where I’m using using LDAP to access AD, and can just about get to the end of the setup without issue

The difference here is that our usernames are commonly what you’d expect: first initial, last name. So a user named Doug Smith would be dsmith.

Unlike the previous thread I found, when entering username@my_domain gives an error that it is an unknown user.

When entering what the expected username, the resulting error message gets displayed as below:

If this is somehow related to the bug listed in the other article with having different results, please let me know

Running Openfire 3.9.1 on a Windows 2008 R2 OS.

Thanks any in advance for help, it would be appreciated.

Do you really have an underscore _ in your domain name?

You know, after reading your question I had thought back about that. I wasn’t using the TLD naming scheme and instead was using our own internal domain name. Thanks, that did it no questions asked.

According to RFC 6122 a JID “username@my_domain” should be allowed.

The domainpart for every XMPP service MUST be a fully qualified

domain name, IPv4 address, IPv6 address, or

unqualified hostname (i.e., a text label that is resolvable on a

local network).

(as well as e.g. username@127.0.0.1)

So I think it’s probably a bug in Openfire.

Tell my some public domain names with an underscore. There are none because they are not allowed in DNS for host names. Only SRV records may contain underscores.

That’s why I marked it bold. I was not thinking about a FQDN, but about an unqualified hostname, which are only resolvable on a local network, not publicly. I am not sure, if underscore is allowed for local hostnames, but “text label” implies it is.
