Today I installed fresh latest version of openfire - 4.1.4
mysql database (MariaDB server) - has been created in this way:
CREATE DATABASE openfire CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;
grant all on openfire.* to 'openfire'@localhost IDENTIFIED BY '***';
I've successfully connected openfire to my AD based on win2008.
created Domain Security group "Openfire Access Group" and added into it my test group that has name in cyrillic symbols.
I can see this group in Groups Summary in Openfire Web Console. It has name - in cyrillic.
When I configure this group as shared group with cyrillic name - after restart openfire service this name converted to "?????????"
Also there is one strange behavior - I configure shared group, and wait some time, refresh page or open it again - and field with contact list group name is empty
So because of this issue I can't provide to my clients rosters permanent group name in cyrillic.
The same behavior was on previous version 4.1.3
Seems nothing changed in new version despite this:
