Ok I follow that, I assumed Wildfire stored contact
groups locally if they were created.
No, if you enable LdapGroupProvider, all group operations go to LDAP, and that provider treats LDAP as read-only, so any operations that would make any changes will return an error along the lines of OperationNotImplemented (or whatever the error type is).
All my IM users are in a group, How do I push this
group out to all the clients? When I go to view
groups I get none showing?
In the Admin page, if you go to Group Summary, you should see a list of groups defined in LDAP. Click on the one you want, make sure that “Enable sharing group in rosters” is selected, make sure that “Group Display Name” has something filled in (this is the group name that will appear in the roster of the users). Then select which of the three options you want as to who’‘s rosters this group will appear in. There has been some confusion in other threads of the exact semantics of these three options, and I don’'t recall the conclusions, but they are there and you can figure out which you want, probably. At the bottom of the page, you should see the members of the group as pulled from LDAP.
Or is this operation not supported when using LDAP
because of the read only nature of the link?
It should work, module vaguaries of LDAP support in the server as a whole (I’‘ve had some hangups in the server that I believe are due to LDAP issues, but I haven’'t been able to track down exact causes as of yet).
