Help getting OpenFire to connect to Active Directory
Posted on 2013-06-24
I'm having a terrible time getting OpenFire to connect to my Active Directory. I have created a domain called ntdcctest.com. My domain controller is named DC1. I have renamed my administrator account to NICK.
In the profile settings of the setup, I'm using the following:
Server type = Active Directory
Host = dc1.ntdcctest.com
Base DN = cn=users,dc=ntdcctest,dc=com
Administrator DN = cn=nick,cn=users,dc=ntdcctest,dc=com
Password = my password
When I test the settings, I don't get any error messages so I'm assuming the test was successful.
I get to the point where I have to add an administrator, and nothing I add here works. I have tried:
I have verified my ldap users container is cn=users,dc=ntdcctest,dc=com using the powershell commandlet get-addomain
I have verified that distinguished name of my account is cn=nick,cn=users,dc=ntdcctest,dc=com using the powershell commandlet get-aduser nick.
Everything I have found on google and in the various postings indicates that cn=nick,cn=users,dc=ntdcctest,dc=com should be working. What am I doing wrong here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
