Using Groups with active directory

I’m trying to get some of my groups from AD to show up in the Roster to group users but i’m not able to see any of the groups.

I’m using Openfire 3.6.0

I looked at the folowing post

But when i looked at my openfire.xml i only see the following:

**<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

  • 9090

  • org.jivesoftware.database.DefaultConnectionProvider
  • net.sourceforge.jtds.jdbc.Driver jdbc:jtds:sqlserver://sqlserver/openfire;appName=jive username password select 1 true true 5 25 1.0 true **

Am i missing something, is my openfire.xml file really misconfigured or what?


Openfire 3.6.x moved most of the settings to the database. They are now adjusted via the admin web interface. If you are not seeing any groups then I would suggest your BaseDN is too specific. You need to expand the scope. Try removing some of the OU statements.

This is my base DN:

ldap.baseDN OU=Users,DC=Domain,Dc=local

All my users that i want in gourp are under that particular OU.

Also when i check the User/Groups tab i can see all the Groups from AD (even the ones i don’t want) but none of then show up in the roster.

Now i do see an entry:

ldap.groupNameField cn

Should i set the value to CN=Openfire* (assuming i have named all my groups that i want to show up Openfire*)?

Take a look at these documents for some help. They have some example filters and how to share groups.
