i REALLY hope some one can help me with this issue. I have AD users that are a memeber of multiple groups. but i need a way to specify which of the Openfire groups they are a member of. Since im using the LDAP authentication, i cannot manually specify which group these users are suposed to belong to, and there doesnt seem to be a standard as to which group the users are added to. so hopefully someone else is in this same situation and could be of some assistance.
Getting that question answered would solve my problem, but maybe there is a better way around this. all of the users are in OUs based on the group they should be in for openfire, so maybe there is a way that i can use OUs for groups, rather than domain group names. is that possible? What i mean is UserA, and UserB are in the OU Administrators, but are members of Sales and Administrators groups. UserA is showing up in the Sales group on openfire while UserB is in the Administrators group. if there was a way to specify that each OU is a group, and the users in each OU belong to that group in Openfire, that would be an easier way around my issue that i am having.
Anyone have any suggestions ? i would be very greatful for any help i can get on this !
