Turn off Group mappings in Open Ldap (OS X 10.4)

I wanted to know what to do in order to turn off the group mappings for my Ldap server. I was able to populate my users and groups using Open Ldap but the problem is none of my members show up in my groups…so I am not able create rosters yet. I want to manually create groups in Openfire using the users that populated in form my ldap server (Open Directory). What do I need to remove, add, or change in my openfire.xml config? Any help would be great. Here is my openfire.xml config:

]]>

cn

mail

cn

member

description

false

(objectClass=*)

org.jivesoftware.openfire.ldap.LdapVCardProvider

org.jivesoftware.openfire.ldap.LdapUserProvider

org.jivesoftware.openfire.ldap.LdapAuthProvider

org.jivesoftware.openfire.ldap.LdapGroupProvider

true

Your BaseDN is most likely one level too deep:

cn=users,dc=opendirectory,dc=pathwaycapital,dc=com

I’'m guessing that your BaseDN should be:

dc=opendirectory,dc=pathwaycapital,dc=com

I typically recommend using a tool like Jxplorer to query your LDAP Directory directly to ensure the settings are correct.

Thanks for the suggestion…but I got a response from a Jive support rep. This is what he said… it work…by the way.

"If you want to allow Openfire to create/manage your groups while getting all the user info from LDAP. To do this, you have to remove the following from your wildfire.xml file and restart your server.
