Setting Up Directory Services
Setting Up Directory Services for Deployments Without Cisco Unified Communications Manager
Setting LDAP search base
By default, Cisco Mobile uses the search base found in a RootDSE search on the defaultNamingContext or namingContexts attribute.
If you need to specify a different search base, enter the Distinguished Name of the root node in your corporate directory that contains user information. Use the lowest node that includes the necessary names. Using a higher node creates a larger search base and thus reduces performance if the directory is very large.
Enter the LDAP Search Base using the following format: CN=users,DC=corp,DC=yourcompany,DC=com
To help determine the optimal search base, you can use a utility such as Active Directory Explorer (available from Microsoft) to view your data structure.
LDAP field mapping
LDAP field mappings identify the attributes in your directory that the system should search and display for directory searches and caller identification.
If your field mappings match the defaults shown in the tables in Determining Field Mappings, page 3-2, you do not need to enter anything here.
Otherwise, enter any field mappings that do not match the default as name=value pairs. Separate each name=value pair with a semicolon (;).
For the name value, see the Element Name column in the table in Determining Field Mappings, page 3-2.
Your photos must be stored on an HTTP server, with filenames that are identical to the values in an Active Directory attribute (excluding the filename extension). By default, Cisco Mobile uses the value in the attribute mapped to the userid element. See the table in Determining Field Mappings, page 3-2.
Example: An image file from your directory is named jsmith.jpg, and the value in the cn attribute is jsmith. You used the LDAP Field Mappings setting to map the userid element to the cn attribute in Active Directory.
Enter the pathname to the image files on your HTTP server. Use the variable %%<userid>%% to represent the userid element.
Example: http://internal.yourcompany.com/photo/%%cn%%.jpg You must include the double percent symbols in the string.
Cisco Mobile automatically resizes the images as needed, but smaller source images process faster.
