We are running an old Jive server with ldap connectivity ( Novell / NDS ). Too old to update (the server, not me), so I decided to try a new install of Openfire 3.6.2 on my Linux workstation (RHEL WS 4 update 6). My plan was to run it, verify it, and then replace the older system, also on RHEL.
The system came up fine, and seems to have used the search filter I swiped from the existing system, for selecting the “enabled” users. When I went to the Admin panel, I found all the right users, but > 6500 groups instead of the 15 or so we have on the Jive system. Yikes! I can’t find where the system stores the groups we want to see in clients. I can’t delete the ones shown in the groups listing.
What did I do wrong?
Thanks in advance for any ideas or help.
