Mix AD user and groups with custom users?

Hi Everyone,

I now have S2S working with my AD integrated Opernfire 3.7.0. It pulls users and groups from AD and all groups are shared on everyones roster and everything is fine.

What I want is for individuals to be able to add say a gtalk users or a jabbers users directly to their own roster.

When I add a jabber.org user I see them get added and the immediately removed. I can communicate between them by starting a conversation from jabber.org even though one appears offline the spark chat window opens up. Is this a by-product of having AD integrated groups in the groups and users are read only?

Is there a way I can achieve what I want?
