    openfire 4.1.4, AD and cyrillic names in shared groups


      Hello all.


      Today I installed fresh latest version of openfire - 4.1.4


      mysql database (MariaDB server) - has been created in this way:


      CREATE DATABASE openfire CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;

      grant all on openfire.* to 'openfire'@localhost IDENTIFIED BY '***';

      flush privileges;

      source /opt/openfire/resources/database/openfire_mysql.sql


      jdbc settings:

      jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/openfire?useUnicode=true&characterEncoding=UTF-8&cha racterSetResults=UTF-8


      I've successfully connected openfire to my AD based on win2008.

      - created Domain Security group "Openfire Access Group" and added into it my test group that has name in cyrillic symbols.

      - I can see this group in Groups Summary in Openfire Web Console. It has name - in cyrillic.



      When I configure this group as shared group with cyrillic name - after restart openfire service this name converted to "?????????"

      Also there is one strange behavior - I configure shared group, and wait some time, refresh page or open it again - and field with contact list group name is _empty_


      So because of this issue I can't provide to my clients rosters permanent group name in cyrillic.


      The same behavior was on previous version 4.1.3

      Seems nothing changed in new version despite this:

      Please advice.
