> I want to have a shared roster with every person from the LDAP directory,
> created automaticaly.
> Everything goes well except for the names displayed in the client (Psi).
> I'd like them to be users' names (or nicknames) and they are displayed ad
> JIDs.
> (Psi displays "User information" correctly, thanks to mod_vcard_ldap, but
> not the "nicknames" on main list)
> Where is this information stored? I believe it is inside ejabberd, along
> with roster. If so, is it possible to set ejabberd up so the "nickname" is
> taken from LDAP instead of simply returning JID?
