Add error message for SASL auth error

Description

Need to add a separate error message for "org.jivesoftware.smack.SmackException: SASL Authentication failed. No known authentication mechanisims." So it won't just give an error that username or password is wrong.

There is a typo in this exception "mechanisims", i will ask to get it fixed (in Smack), so we should look for a correct word or just end check by word "authentication".

We also need to word this correctly. It is AD related, but what exactly does this mean?

UPD: in Smack 4.2 this will change to:
"No supported and enabled SASL Mechanism provided by server. "
"Server announced mechanisms: "
"Registerd SASL mechanisms with Smack: "
"Enabled SASL mechansisms for this connection: "
"Blacklisted SASL mechanisms: "

Hey. I am trying to figure out which issue corresponds to the exact one we had when upgrading to 2.8.0 last week.

No one was able to login and received the error about invalid username/password. I understand there are a couple of forums regarding this but not sure if we should just wait for the next update or if we do need to use a work-around like other users.

This topic is a bit too complex for me to understand on my own. Thanks.

You should be asking in the forums. There is no harm in creating another thread in the forums Your question is not related to this ticket in particular.

Also you can read this document. If you don't understand how to fix your setup, then just use 2.7.7 or 2.8.0 test build with an option to disable certificate verification checked. This option will be available in 2.8.1, but i don't know when it will be released. https://community.igniterealtime.org/docs/DOC-5262
