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.
