I have successfully managed to install Openfire binding to my AD using LDAP and the embedded DB, it sees all my users tree as well as the groups which is perfect.
However there was no way for me to make the Spark user search work, I would always get the Unable to contact search service popup.
I don’t have this issue when I don’t bind to my AD, I mean by that that it’s not that I have forgotten to install the search plugin for instance.
Nothing was quite relevant in the logs either (on both sides, Openfire and Spark). I have seen, at some point, an error concerning vCards but my user profiles are very simple (it’s just a logon and a first and last name basically), and yet again the issue doesn’t arise when I configure Openfire without the LDAP binding to my AD.
However I can’t seem to reproduce that error anyway after several reinstallations.
I have found out that there is out there a ‘LDAP search plugin’, is that the trick? And if yes, could anyone point me to the latest release of it?
Any guidance as to how to troubleshoot that one would be greatly appreciated.
