I work at a hospital where our AD system OU’s are broken up by patient care area. For example there is one OU for ER, one for ICU, and so on. When setting up OpenFire I created a new OpenFire OU with the Spark Admin user account and a Spark Users group. My plan was to add users that required access to that Spark Users group. When OpenFire searched for users it found the admin account, but seemed to ignore the users group. My question is: Is there a way for OpenFire to read the members of an AD group?
I know the obvious answer is to move the all required users into an OU for OpenFire, but the problem with that is that we also have AD group policies and specific login scripts set up per patient care area. I need to be able to give the managers of ED and ICU access to Spark while restricting anyone else in those areas from using Spark or showing up in the offline users list.
