I have just switched my Wildfire installation (2.5.0) from using a MySQL database for everything to using an LDAP connection to an Active Directory server for user data. I have been having some problems with the handling of shared groups, and I posted in a thread in Spark Support about it, but after further investigation, it seems clear that the problem is server-based.
I have a few Active Directory groups that are set up as Wildfire groups as well (by being themselves members of my JabberGroups group), and I have set these up in the Admin console to be shared groups. However, they are appearing erratically in some users’’ rosters (including my own). It appears that some users are not being seen as authorized to others, though this is by no means mutual (user A cannot see user B, but user B can see user A).
I am more than happy to provide any information I can gather to trace this problem to its source…and I would very much appreciate any help anyone can give.
