Openfire LDAP Config on SBS2003

Attempting to configure LDAP connection settings for Openfire on Windows SBS 2003 Server.

I have created a user called openfire that I hope to use as the administrator for Openfire.

For “Server Type:” I have selected Active Directory

For “Host:” I have the ip address of the sbs server

“Port:” is set to 389

“Base DN:” is set to: ou=SBSUsers,ou=Users,ou=MyBusiness; dc=domain,dc=local

“Administrator DN:” is set to: cn=openfire,ou=SBSUsers,ou=Users,ou=MyBusiness; dc=domain,dc=local

When I test settings, I receive:

Error authenticating with the LDAP server. Check supplied credentials.

I belive the problem may be with my Base DN settings or Administrator DN settings. Any help is appreciated.


Changed “Administrator DN:” field to and tested successfully.
