just got Jive Messenger installed using LDAP for user verification and using Exodus as a client it works 100%!
but now i need an easy way to populate each client’'s roster with the rest of the users in the specific LDAP container. would like to roll this out to the entire company of around 150 users, and for each of them to add the other 149 users will be a nightmare, considering their level of IT knowledge.
we are currently using MSN and IM for Exchange 2000, but upgrading to 2003 we will be loosing IM. so what better way to go than open source! in MSN you can import contacts from a file, and the file can be easily created using a perl script.
in my Jive Messenger table on my SQL i found the roster table, and tried adding some contacts into the roster manually, but no success… is there an easier way to do this?
