Problem installing openfire with Active Directory on Windows 2003


I am having an issue while installing OpenFire on Windows 2003 using Active Directory. I get all the way to the end of the install and setup where it assk me for an Administrator Account. No matter what I type in it will not take it and gives the error “**No username was provided or the specified username was not found”.

I have tried all the different ways for the username…




I am not sure where to go from here.

Thanks in advance for all the help.

It sounds to me like you have misconfigure your settings for AD integration. The server cannot retrieve a user based on the settings (baseDN, filters, etc) you provided. If you are using version 3.5.x or below post your openfire.xml file from C:\Program Files\Openfire\conf. I also have some documents that may help you, this one should get you started:

This was very close to the what the problem was. When I was adding all my LDAP entries (cn=, dc=, dc=) information I drilled down to far.
