Changing LDAP Directory URI field mapping after installation

Hi all,

I've got a production implementation of CUCM 9.1.2.  We don't currently do any SIP URI dialing, but I'm starting to investigate this.

Our email addresses in LDAP (MS AD) are in the Mail field.  By default, CUCM points the Directory URI field in UCM to the AD field "msRTCSIP-primaryuseraddres".  When adding a new LDAP Directory, you can change this field, but once the LDAP is created and synchronised, it doesn't look like this is an option any longer.

It looks like I could create a new LDAP instance pointing to the same servers but with this entry changed, but then I have 2 going to the same place.  When you delete an LDAP instance, it warns you that all users sync'd from that instance will be deleted, which is obviously not desirable.

Has anyone been able to change this field without affecting functionality and user accounts in the system?  Any recommendations on doing this?

Thanks,

Ryan

I'm using Jabber for Windows version 9.6. I'm set up in phone only mode, but it should work in UC mode too, if you have a presence server (I don't).

The Directory URIs end up in their own partition called (maybe obviously) Directory URI :) I just added this to the bottom of my CSS for the DN on Jabber.

The DN also needs to be the user's primary line in the End User config. My system seemed to have this for everyone, but I don't recall if we did that on purpose or not.

I referenced this link to get going quickly:

One weird thing... if you're typing a directory URI into Jabber, it doesn't really search on the info. so you have to type the entire address and then press return for the lookup to happen and work. This is fine for testing, but I doubt people would do this in real life. They would just type someone's name and dial based on the lookup on AD or UDS.

Hope that helps!
