I just joined today!
I was able to successfully install Openfire on Server 2003 and have it using LDAP with our domain. I’m able to log in with users on the domain and IM back and forth. I’m using most of the defaults, including the embedded DB.
Here is the situation:
-I do not want everyone on the domain able to access this (yes, they’d need the server name of course, but still)
-I have an OU I can use, but then I have a few consultants that reside in another OU. The OU they’re in has a ton of other consultants that I do NOT want to give access to
-If I can allow an AD group, my problem should be solved
-If I can allow or disallow users, I’d do that too, but I’d like to keep using LDAP and not have to create separate user accounts
