I’m setting up my OpenFire server and am using Active Directory. Under connection settings I entered the base dn and administrator dn correctly and when I tested the settings got a success.
However I cannot get it to find users under User Mapping. I’ve left everything as default but when testing the settings I get a fail saying I should change either the base dn, filter, or username field. The username field is the default for active directory (sAMAccountName) and the base dn should be correct and as I said I got a success on the previous screen. I’ve tried taking out the filter that it has in there by default but still get a failure. Does anybody know what I might need to change?
As was mine, that is why I photshopped it to change the names. Are you using the default Users container for baseDN? I would think/hope your users are in an OU somewhere else. If all the users are not located in the baseDN they will not show.
You should create OUs and place the users in an OU, groups in an OU, and computers in an OU. This will allow you to better manage your computers and users via group policy. It will also increase your security. Using the default AD containers is considered bad form and low security.
