Finally got Openfire 3.9.3 running on Ubuntu 14 LTS
I’m trying to do the config part and connect my Openfire to my Zentyal PDC. There don’t seem to be many options here, but it seems to not be working.
There is a “Test Connection” button, but it doesn’t seem to do anything except refresh the page. I’ve tried in IE, Firefox and in Chrome. It doesn’t give me a “Failure” or “Success” message, but I’m assuming for the moment that no message=failure, because when I put in gibberish that I know is wrong and test, I get the same behavior.
So here are the settings I’m using:
Type: Active Directory
Hostname: IPof.My.Zentyal.Server (I’m using a local IP since they are on the same LAN)
Base DN: CN=Users,DC=local,DC=mydomain,DC=com
Administrator DN: CN=Adminname,CN=Users,DC=local,DC=mydomain,DC=com
It seems pretty straight forward. Am I missing something here? Do I need to have Samba installed on the Openfire box to connect to a PDC through Openfire?
I’ve successfully joined a NAS and several Windows Workstations to this same Zentyal box, but all using a firstname.lastname@example.org + password authentication scheme. This is the first time I am using a DN authentication scheme, but again, it seems pretty straightforward…
Is there anywhere I can check for a little more info on what is happening behind the scenes? The only way I can progress past this point is if I get some error codes or something.
I found this thread with almost the exact same issue: https://igniterealtime.jiveon.com/message/241212#241212
