I am currently using SPARk 2.5.8 and Openfire 3.5.0 and we have a few issues.
Our users have mandatory profiles which seems to be causing an issue with SPARK.
I have sent out spark with JRE via GPO. It has installed on the PC’s. I have also looked around here for help and have done the following.
A logon script that checks for a spark.properties for the user. If the user does not have one, then the file is created with the correct settings.
IF EXIST “%USERPROFILE%\Spark\spark.properties” GOTO END
ECHO Setting up new Spark user profile - Please wait!
IF NOT EXIST “%USERPROFILE%\Spark” mkdir “%USERPROFILE%\Spark”
ECHO server=(ourserver)>> %SPARKPREFS%
ECHO idleTime=5 >> %SPARKPREFS%
ECHO windowTakesFocus=false >> %SPARKPREFS%
ECHO spellCheckerEnabled=true >> %SPARKPREFS%
ECHO passwordSaved=true >> %SPARKPREFS%
ECHO username=%USERNAME% >> %SPARKPREFS%
ECHO showHistory=true >> %SPARKPREFS%
ECHO lastUpdateCheck= >> %SPARKPREFS%
ECHO defaultChatLengthTimeout=300 >> %SPARKPREFS%
ECHO autoLoginEnabled=False >> %SPARKPREFS%
ECHO chatNotificationOn=true >> %SPARKPREFS%
ECHO timeDisplayed=true >> %SPARKPREFS%
ECHO showEmptyGroups=false >> %SPARKPREFS%
ECHO toasterPopup=true >> %SPARKPREFS%
ECHO startOnStartup=true %SPARKPREFS%
ECHO startHidden=true %SPARKPREFS%
My problem is that the SPARK folder is created for the user in their local profile, but on the server a spark folder is created in the profile directory. This is being changed by each user as they log on.
Also the username of the last person to login is remembered.
Can I tell spark where to get the spark.properties file from and can I redirect the working directory to x:\spark
We are a school and as such we lock pretty much everything down. I just can’t see how I can get spark to work in my environment effectively.
Server 2003, AD, XP SP2 Clients.
If someone can point me to literature for this then that would be great.
