I recently deployed the stable version of Openfire and configured it to use LDAP authentication. That was working great. I then upgraded Openfire to 3.10.0 beta so that I could leverage the new Openfire Meetings plugin for video conferencing. As soon as I did the upgrade, nobody could use LDAP to authenticate via Spark client.
In order to confirm that the upgrade was the cause of my issues, I did a restore of the server to the previous day. As soon as the server was restored to the previous stable release, everyone could authenticate again. I then tried the upgrade one more time and the same authentication issue occurred for users.
One thing I noticed during the upgrade is that the installer asked me if I wanted to overwrite existing JAR files with the new ones from the installer. I told it to do so. Could that be part of the problem?
I’m running this on Windows Server 2008R2.
Thanks in advance for your time and help!
