Okay here is our issue. By default when you specify an AD container in your LDAP settings (assuming you are integrating with active directory). Your user and group list is pulled and apparently stored in a database on the Openfire server.
What I am trying to figure out is how to remove names of past employee’s quickly from the user list displayed in the Spark client. For instance when an employee leaves the company, if their account is disabled it apparently still display’s in the Spark client. I have deleted a couple old user accounts and they still appear in the client.
I am trying to determine at what interval the server polls AD for these types of changes? And how/when does it purge old non-existant accounts?
We have many OU’s in which users are catergorized so inputting each OU into Openfire is not an option. If I did this, then maybe I could simply move disabled users to a specific OU that openfire did not look at and have the server update to relfect these changes.
Please advise on how to handle this situation.
