Hi,

Is the Jabber client able to look up AD based contacts, not other users or exchange users.

I am looking for documentation to support this but am having difficulty.

Thanks

Hello,

 

Yes it is, it connects to the AD in the domain that your PC belongs to, you can check in Help>Show connection status and scroll all the way to directory to check if its connected.

 

If your computer is not part of a domain you need to add an XML that specifies the AD server like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<config version="1.0">

<Directory>
  <DirectoryServerType>EDI</DirectoryServerType>
  <PrimaryServerName>11.22.33.456</PrimaryServerName>
  <ServerPort1>389 or 3268</ServerPort1>
  <UseWindowsCredentials>0</UseWindowsCredentials>
  <SearchBase1>ou=people,dc=cisco,dc=com</SearchBase1>  
  <ConnectionUsername>cn=administrator,dc=cisco,dc=com</ConnectionUsername>
  <ConnectionPassword>password</ConnectionPassword>
</Directory>

</config>

 

Connection username and pasword need to belong to an account that has read access inside of the OU you specify.

 

You need to save the file as .xml and uploaded to your CUCM and restart TFTP.

 

This document shows that it does support AD for directories:

Good luck!
