Cisco Agent Desktop 8.0(1) for UCCE 8.0 - 8.0(1) 

Problem Description

In the CAD 8.0(1) release, the CAD LDAP service is susceptible to glue nodes, which corrupt the directory and can result in one or more agents being unable to log into the ACD. In addition, a CAD LDAP service with glue nodes cannot be backed up and restored, thus impairing upgrades to later CAD releases. Glue nodes are relatively rare occurrences, but the problem has been reported.

For this reason, existing CAD 8.0(1) customers should upgrade to CAD 8.0(1a), which directly addresses this problem by replacing the CAD LDAP Service. CAD 8.0(1a) also contains additional bug fixes.


The CAD LDAP service is used to store deployment-specific configuration information. In a high availability environment, this data is replicated. With the CAD 8.0(1) version of the service, corruption in the form of glue nodes may result after data is written to the active LDAP while the inactive LDAP is offline. Once the inactive CAD LDAP Service returns online and LDAP replication resumes, glue nodes may be created in both LDAP Services.

Problem Symptoms

Symptoms may include the inability of one or more agents to successfully log in. In addition, an administrator may notice that changes made to the system configuration through Cisco Desktop Administrator are not saved and specific agent settings, such as an assignment to a work flow group, may no longer be visible. Finally, the Sync Service Error Log (DirAccessSynSvr0001.dbg) will display errors when set to a DEBUG or TRACE level.


CAD 8.0(1a) for UCCE is a replacement of CAD 8.0(1). All new customer orders will receive CAD 8.0(1a). Existing customers may download the ISO from the Cisco web site for product support from this location:

Products > Voice and Unified Communications > Customer Collaboration > Cisco Unified Contact Center Products > Cisco Agent Desktop > Cisco Agent Desktop Software Releases

Alternatively, customers with a valid support contract may order the installation CD through the Product Upgrade Tool.

Existing CAD 8.0(1) customers should upgrade to CAD 8.0(1a). CAD 8.0(1a) is a base release that addresses the issue by providing a replacement CAD LDAP service. The CAD 8.0(1a) upgrade process analyzes the existing CAD LDAP service, determines its current state, and if necessary, repairs the affected LDAP service before performing the upgrade. Specific upgrade instructions appear in the CAD 8.0(1a) product release notes.

Customers who have applied an ET for CAD 8.0(1) should review this list before upgrading to ensure its inclusion. If an applied ET has not been included in this list, the customer should contact Cisco TAC and request an ET that is applicable for CAD 8.0(1a) before performing the upgrade.
