Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

The system log on my Openfire + OpenLDAP installation is getting flooded with this message:

slap_global_control: unrecognized control: 1.2.840.113556.1.4.473

This means that Openfire wants OpenLDAP to do server-side sorting, which OpenLDAP doesn't support. The Openfire LDAP Guide advises to set the property ldap.clientSideSorting to true in this case.

Unfortunately, Openfire doesn't find any user accounts in LDAP anymore if I do that. How do I make this work?

Sounds like the slap-valsort(5) overlay.

I haven't used it myself but the Audit Logging, Dynamic Groups and Reverse Group Membership Maintenace weren't too much of a hassle to set up, so you might want to give it a try.
