also. for the admin i think your administrator DN will have to be in the same OU as the rest of your users to work with the GUI config. I am trying to figure out the same thing right now to use an additonal LDAP path for my admin. I tried manually modifying the conf/openfire.xml file but i blew up my install.
Hey shackbill, thank you for trying, but I’ve tried it over the weekend, and still can’t figure out the correct Base & Admin DN. I’ve tried the one’s above (with spaces and without), but it now pops up the error
Error connecting to the LDAP server. Ensure that the directory server is running at the specified host name and port and that a firewall is not blocking access to the server.
I’ve even tried to change the port to 3268 in the same config screen, but same error as above.
Thanks for the effort bud. I’m still trying to figure this out.
Hey J2567 thanks for the tip. I’ve created the “openfire” OU in the root of AD, with the security group called “ofusers”. I’ve added every user that will be using the IM service. Now, where would I specify the LDAP search feature syntax?
I’ve created a user called “ofadmin” in the Users folder of the root of AD. I’ve assigned Domain Admin and Administrator group for the user. I went into the “openfire” OU and then went into the ofusers group and added the “ofadmin” user to the group. I still can’t get past the testing screen. Please see screenshot “of1.jpg” for more info.
I tried administrator@EECOEXCHANGE.eecomail.ad and it still failed, but I did somehow complete the install, which it now asks me for the username and password. No matter which combinations I try, it fails to login.As far as the username above, is it case sensitive?
Note: eecoexchange is the name of the server, whereas the eccomail.ad is the domain.
