Setting Up Directory Services

Setting Up Directory Services for Deployments with Cisco Unified Communications Manager

Setting Up Directory Services for Deployments with Cisco Unified Communications Manager

If your deployment includes a supported version of Cisco Unified Communications Manager, you can set up directory services using the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration portal. When the user sets up the client, the system automatically configures these settings on the client.

Before You Begin

Verify that the client can connect to the system and use calling features, as described in Setting Up Dial via Office Features, page 2-1.

Determine whether your company directory uses the default attributes described in Determining Field Mappings, page 3-2. Note any attributes that differ from the default attributes.

Step 1 Step 2

Procedure In Cisco Unified Communications Manager, navigate to the Phone Configuration screen for the user.

Enter values:



Enable LDAP User Authentication

If users do not need to enter credentials to access directory services (your deployment uses Anonymous Bind), choose Disabled.

If users must enter credentials to access directory services, choose Enabled.

LDAP Username LDAP Password

Credentials for accessing your directory server, if needed. If authentication is not required, leave these settings blank.

These credentials can be for a single read-only account for all users.

These credentials are sent to the client in clear text in the TFTP file. Therefore, we strongly recommend that Active Directory administrators generate a directory query Active Directory account that has no other rights. Create this account with a value that is low enough to ensure that its credentials are semi-public (available to anyone on the local network).

LDAP Server

(include the port number)

Enter the IP address and port number of your directory server. If Global Catalog is enabled, use port 3269 for secure (SSL) connections and 3268 for nonsecure connections. If Global Catalog is not enabled, enter 389 for nonsecure connections or 636 for SSL connections.

Use the format YourDirectoryServer.YourCompany.com:portnumber. To turn off LDAP, leave this setting blank.

If you do not enter a port, Cisco Mobile tries 389 for nonsecure connections and 636 for SSL connections.


Choose as applicable to your directory server.
