I’'ve been trying for quite some time with several different configurations of the jive-messenger.xml to get it working with my LDAP (Fedora Directory Server) userbase.
Here’'s my configuration:
I’'m able to connect to my database using the firefox email address book with this:
Base DN: dc=example,dc=host,dc=name,dc=com
Port Number: 389
If my syntax is correct for the host part the only thing I can think is that my adminDN could be wrong or else I’'m missing something else. I used a basic install of Fedora Directory Server.
When I run through the jive messenger configuration I click through all of the defaults, add my admin account and password and when I log in all I get under User Summary is my admin account.
