I’m working on an internship project that is to group Active Directory’s users of my company in Openfire to create an internal instant messaging. Installation and setup were good, I have been testing ways to apply filters…
I’m inquiring about the Openfire’s operation and storage mode with Active Directory, so I tested addition and deletion of users in Active Directory to test if it is in accordance with Openfire.
So my question is that: is Openfire linked directly to Active Directory or did it copy the entire Active Directory in an other database witch inquiring later? I see that my database didn’t contain fields present in Active Directory, so I suppose there is not copy, but I prefer ask you. And if it is directly linked, how is the synchronization with Active Directory?
PS: Sorry if my english wording is not perfect, I’m french
