I chose poorly

I finally took the advice of a co-worker and checked out OpenFire to replace Jabber XCP. After about 30 minutes I had Openfire configured with all of the functionality that had taken me weeks to setup properly in XCP.

Additionally I was able to pre-define buddy groups using AD groups, set a message of the day, send broadcast messages to all logged in users, and perform other handy functions.

If you're looking at implementing a Jabber/XMPP solution, its definitely worth a look.
