Multiple LDAP on Trusted Domains

Greetings All,

 

Got a question about getting Openfire to authenticate in multiple domains in different forests.

 

Here is the scenario:

Domain A  - DC="DomainA",DC="com"

Domain B - DC="DomainB",DC="com"

 

Openfire installed on DomainA

 

OS - Both domains have Active Directory on Windows Server 2003.

VPN - Both domains connected through VPN

 

DomainA and DomainB have a Trusted Two directional Trust through Active Directory.

 

 

Openfire works great on DomainA, users are authenticated agains the LDAP, life is good!.

 

Now enter DomainB, for a multitude of reasons openfire will not be installed domainB,  therefore I want the Openfire on DomainA, to allow users from DomainB.  This works fine in other scenarios, eg. Shared Folders etc.

 

Looking in the config, I can only enter:

          Base DN: DC="DomainA",DC="com"


So how is openfire supposed to know that it also needs to check against: DC="DomainB",DC="com"

 

 

 

Any ideas?
