Using Active Directory group with OpenFire

The machine that had our OpenFire server on it died, and I am setting it up again. We have a group called “IM Users” in our active directory. We are a small company of about 20 employees, and I just want all user accounts in this group to be able to login to OpenFire and automatically have all the other users in their contact list. This was all setup before, but now I can’t seem to figure out how to do it.

I can’t seem to even find where to go back into my LDAP setup for OpenFire. There isn’t anything in the Admin Console, and none of the LDAP info appears in openfire.xml.

I am a complete novice with LDAP, so any help is greatly appreciated.

all the ldap settings are now in the system properties of the admin website for openfire. conversely you can rerun the setup by editing the openfire.xml setup tag to read false.

this doc is a guide with user filters by group http://www.igniterealtime.org/community/docs/DOC-1554

this doc shows how to share the group to the roster: http://www.igniterealtime.org/community/docs/DOC-1619

Thank you very much. The second link showed exactly what I was missing. It turns not to have been directly related to LDAP.
