Got a question about getting Openfire to authenticate in multiple domains in different forests.
Here is the scenario:
Domain A - DC=“DomainA”,DC=“com”
Domain B - DC=“DomainB”,DC=“com”
Openfire installed on DomainA
OS - Both domains have Active Directory on Windows Server 2003.
VPN - Both domains connected through VPN
DomainA and DomainB have a Trusted Two directional Trust through Active Directory.
Openfire works great on DomainA, users are authenticated agains the LDAP, life is good!.
Now enter DomainB, for a multitude of reasons openfire will not be installed domainB, therefore I want the Openfire on DomainA, to allow users from DomainB. This works fine in other scenarios, eg. Shared Folders etc.
Looking in the config, I can only enter:
Base DN: DC=“DomainA”,DC=“com”
So how is openfire supposed to know that it also needs to check against: DC=“DomainB”,DC=“com”
