Sorry in advance if this question has already been asked. With the help of Todd Getz’s AD/LDAP document,
I have successfully got a test instance of Openfire 3.6.2 pulling user and group information from our enterprise
We have an existing production Openfire 3.5.2 server which is set up to use an external MySQL
database but is not using LDAP for user authentication (rather, simply users/groups created in the
Openfire Admin GUI). Are then any issues other people have encountered or that I should be
aware of in switching this running server to use LDAP for authentication?
I am not planning to upgrade the server at the same time (so will still be running 3.5.2). I guess the
procedure would be shut down the server, make the necessary changes to the openfire.xml file updating
it with the LDAP bind and filter information, and bring it back up again - hopefully pulling user/group info
What happens with the existing accounts for example? E.g at present all users have the same local
username as their sAMAccount name in the LDAP I will be connecting to.
Any info would be great
