OpenFire 3.8.1 (and tried 3.8.2)
BaseDN: cn=Users;dc=mydomain, dc=local
Test Settings shows success.
Username field: sAMAccountName
PROBLEM #1: When trying to add an administrator account from LDAP, it returns “No username was provided or the specified username was not found.”
PROBLEM #2: When trying to change the password on the Administrator Account screen, it returns “There was an unexpected error encountered…” Error log shows error loading plugin Search.
So, skip this step to finalize the install.
Using Spark, I can log in with network credentials. Life is good.
PROBLEM 3: Try to log in to admin console, no joy. Either using admin/admin or network administrator account/password.
PROBLEM 4: Restart OpenFire. Try to connect with Spark and get told invalid username and password.
Reboot the whole machine, same issues. Previous installation of OpenFire was working great until we tried to get the AD part to work.
