Openfire on Small Business Server 2003

I’ve been trying (without success) to setup Openfire on an SBS2003 Server using LDAP/Active Directory for authentication.

Here’s what I have so far in the setup wizard;

Step 1:

Server type: Active Directory

Host: ‘MyServer’ Port:389

BaseDN: ou=SBSUsers,ou=Users,ou=MyBusiness;dc=mydomain,dc=local.

Administrator DN: administrator@mydomain.local Although I’ve tried a couple of other settings that also appear to work.

Password: Administrators Password

Step 2:

Username Field: sAMAccountName

Everything else left as defaults.

Step 3:

Group Field: cn

Member Field: member

Despcription Field: description

At this point if I test the settings I get the error.

“No groups were found using the specified configuration. Try changing the base DN,group filter or member field”.

But I can save and continue onto the Add Administrator screen which also fails with the error. “No username was provided or the specified username was not found”.

Any help with resolving this to get a working install would be greatly appreciated.

It appears as though your basedn is wrong. Try backing it off acouple of levels. Keep in mind you LDAP query will only take place within the basedn you have specified. The user administrator is generally in the default Users container in AD and this is not an OU. You need to use a domain admin that exists within your basedn.
