    same with me,
    i followed the instructions but no luck.

    might just add the staff manually.

    only planning on testing it with a few staff before i roll it out to the rest of them.

    Looks like the Wildfire site has a good and active community that would be worth tapping into. For example, here's a typical thread.

    About to dive into the LDAP/AD thing myself.... gulp - wish me luck, Carruthers... :?

    Re: Winpopup thingy?

    Right, OK, with a bit of messing around and with some pointers from the Wildfire forums, I have got LDAP to work.

    The following wildfire.xml works. All you have to do is change it to match your domain and group names. As a pointer, our domain is called 'NCTC' and the group of users it filters to allow access is called 'Staff'.

    Hope this helps:

    Code:
    
    
    
    
     
       
          
        9090  
        9091 
        
       
          
          
        mwood  
          
         
        
      en  
        
        
        
        
       
        localhost  
        389  
        sAMAccountName  
        displayName  
        mail  
        dc=NCTC  
        NCTC\admin  
        yourpassword  
          
        cn  
        member  
        description  
        
        false 
        
       
         
          org.jivesoftware.wildfire.ldap.LdapUserProvider 
          
         
          org.jivesoftware.wildfire.ldap.LdapAuthProvider 
         
        
        
       
        org.jivesoftware.database.EmbeddedConnectionProvider 
        
      true

    Re: Winpopup thingy?

    Doh - been trying to get Wildfire to use LDAP/AD only to find, much to my surprise, that the server Wildfire is on is not Active Directory enabled! I guess as a web server no one thought that AD would be important there. No wonder I couldn't get it to work.

    Now I have a choice - move Wildfire to an AD enabled server, or enable AD on the existing Wildfire server, or just stick to manual account creation? Think I'll stick to the latter solution and maintain control by hand - it'll probably be easier and quicker, at least for now.

    Anyone noticed that the Spark client application takes a while to start up - like over a minute?

    It's written in Java. Blame SUN for their crummy JVM.

    Does for me too, but I'm using Blackdown JVM on Linux so it's obvious why.

    Re: Winpopup thingy?

    Found an answer on the Jivesoft website forum - you have to set the Automatic Discovery option to "off" and specify the server to use - all from the Advanced settings button on the Login box. That at least halves the startup time. Still not lightning fast though...

    @Tuxguy: Just got round to setting this up on my ICT Support server and followed tha AD config instructions from the Jivesoft site and have to say was very pleased when it worked.

    Regarding the server you have it installed on it doesn't matter wether that is a active directory server or not you just set the ip_address to be the ip address of an AD server and then the wildfire server does an ldap lookup against it.

    Re: Winpopup thingy?

    I've got it set up on MS server with AD intergration, but I've never managed an RM network so I don't know what the difference might be in setup. I did post the contents of my 'wildfire.xml' further up so don't know if you can work it out from that?

    (Thanks Tarquel for putting in Code tags. Didn't know I had to do this but I do now!!!)

    org.jivesoftware.wildfire.ldap.LdapAuthProvider ;
    
    
    
    
    org.jivesoftware.database.EmbeddedConnectionProvider
    
    true
    
    This xml files works on rm network but you have to create a admin2 domain admin user..

    Not got it working with systemadmin and not got it working with staff only user yets...
