    Default [SOLVED] ZCS and Openfire

    Hi,

    Is it correct to say you need to install both ZCS and Openfire to benefit from from both software ?
    Hosted demo let me think Openfire could be installed as a ZCS component.

    Regards

    No, you don't need to install them both. Zimbra has an IM feature in it.

    Strange as I don't remember any IM-related question during ZCS 5.0.5 Open Source Edition.

    Now, I can't see the "IM (beta)" folder I could see on hosted demo.

    So either :
    - my memory fails
    - I choosed the wrong version of ZCS
    - I still have something to install or tweak to include IM functions.

    What do you think ?

    PS: I didn't a line in Zimbra Wiki about Zimbra and Openfire. Which source of documentation is recommended on this specific topic ?

    As I already answered on the french forum, IM is here, it's beta and you need to enable it by hand (with CoS and even a bit of CLI in some cases).

    Thanks

    And for documentation, do you think (various) forums are the only source of information ?

    Currently, yes.

    I don't think there'll be official documentation (server side) as long as IM is in beta.

    This is not a good news as Forum is not the best media for this.

    Maybe, someone should add a line somewhere in the wiki confirming this : people would stop to wonder if they searched in right place.

    I thought I could add an Openfire line here (ZCS Architecture and Components - Zimbra :: Wiki)
    and then a new page explaining what you said.

    Would say it's a good idea ?

    Done !

    A question remains : how do you activate OpenFire (as it is supposed to be present by default) ?
    In my ZCS OSS 5.0.5 setup, I can't see any trace of any XMPP-Jabber-OpenFire sub-directory in either /opt/zimbra nor /etc.

    Do you have clue on this ?

    Code:
    su - zimbra
    
    zmprov -l -v mcf zimbraXMPPEnabled TRUE
    zmprov -v mc default zimbraFeatureIMEnabled TRUE
    zmprov -v mc default zimbraFeatureInstantNotify TRUE
    zmcontrol stop
    zmcontrol start
    Obviously set the COS to the one you use if it's not the default.
    Regards
