Plug-ins disappearing?

Hi there,

I recently installed openfire on an XP machine and linked it to the Active Directory. Everything has been going great so far but I notice I really odd thing.

On the Plugin’s page in the admin console they will randomly “disapear”, when I refresh the screen sometimes the plugins will jump back in, somtimes they will still be gone.

RESOLVED - I stoped Openfire, deleted all plugin directortires and re-installed.

I have (eh I think I have) the following four plugins installed:

  1. Client Control

  2. Monitoring Service

  3. MOTD

  4. Search

Also the Monitoring Service and Search plugins do not appear to place anything under the server settings that they claim to in the help files.

Any ideas?

Edit: Also spark will also sometimes say that the search service could not be contacted, whilst other times it will work fine.

Edit: Here is my error.log and warn.log after trying to uninstall the monitoring plugin:

They would only do that if they were improperly installed or unistalled. You should stop openfire, goto c:\Program Files\Openfire\plugins and delete the offending plugins and the folders they created. Then start openfire and try to readd the plugins.
