Introduction

Revised May 16, 2008

Cisco Unified Messaging with IBM Lotus Sametime allows users to view and play Cisco Unity or Cisco Unity Connection voice messages directly from their Sametime client application.

In addition, Sametime can be integrated with IBM Lotus Notes to achieve the following:

Sametime shows up in a pane within the Notes client.

The native capabilities of Sametime—as well as those exposed through plug-ins—can be accessed from within Notes.

These plug-ins include Cisco Unified Messaging with Lotus Sametime, as well as a plug-in for allowing click-to-call functionality, and a plug-in to launch a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace meeting from the buddy list or an instant message.

Configuration Utility Improved

The Cisco Unified Messaging with Lotus Sametime Configuration utility can be run directly from the plug-ins directory in the update site.

Delete Key Behavior Is Delete Only

The Delete key is used solely for deletion.

In earlier versions, the key toggled between delete and undelete.

Message Introduction Plays with Forwarded Message

When a user records an introduction for a forwarded message, Cisco Unified Messaging with Lotus Sametime plays the introduction, then the forwarded message.

In earlier versions, the plug-in did not play the introduction.

Multiple Fields Supported in Reversed LDAP Lookup

LDAP details for an individual often include information for multiple phone numbers, including primary phone, mobile phone, and home phone.

Cisco Unified Messaging with Lotus Sametime allows specification of multiple LDAP fields in the "Search Field" LDAP preference against which the plug-in can attempt to match the ANI to look up contact information for the voice message sender. When specifying multiple LDAP field names, each should be quoted and concatenated with "AND." For example,

"telephonenumber" AND "mobilephone" AND "homephone"

In earlier versions of the plug-in, the "Search Field" LDAP preference allowed only a single LDAP field to be used in the matching of the ANI for a voice message sender. This limited the ability to match a contact against a voice message sender if the sender called from a phone number that was not the same as the phone number associated with the LDAP field specified in "Search Field," even when the information was contained elsewhere in their LDAP details.

Preference Page Grouped with Other Cisco Preference Pages

The Voicemail tab that contains preferences for Cisco Unified Messaging with Lotus Sametime is located underneath the Cisco preference page. Other Cisco plug-ins will also be under this new Cisco page.

Problem Reporting Improved

A Create Problem Report button has been added to the Preferences page. When pressed, it creates a file in the user's Lotus Sametime log directory called ProblemReport.zip that contains all of the sametime.log.x files, the .log file (from .metadata) and the new voicemailbox.dat file (if it exists). The user is notified with a dialog box that the file was created and where it is, or that there was an error trying to create the file.

Configuring Cisco Unified Messaging with Lotus Sametime 1.2(3)

Revised December 15, 2008

In this section, you configure the Cisco Unified Messaging with Lotus Sametime plug-in for all users who will use it.

You can use the Cisco Unified Messaging with Lotus Sametime Configuration utility with automatic installations of the plug-in (for example, push installations) and with manual installations, and for updating user configuration information after the plug-in has been installed.

For configuration changes to take effect, either set up Lotus Sametime to automatically update users by using a push update, or instruct users to update the plug-in from their Lotus Sametime client.

For information on configuring the directory services fields, see the "Configuring Directory Services" section.

This section contains two procedures:

To Configure Cisco Unified Messaging with Lotus Sametime by Using the Configuration Utility

To Manually Configure Cisco Unified Messaging with Lotus Sametime on a User Workstation

In the first procedure, some of the fields in the utility correspond to what is available for users to configure in the Lotus Sametime Preferences window. If you do not want users to customize a particular field, select the Read Only check box for that field.

To Configure Cisco Unified Messaging with Lotus Sametime by Using the Configuration Utility


Step 1 Go to the plugins directory of the update site.

Step 2 From a command line, enter the following command to launch the Cisco Unified Messaging with Lotus Sametime Configuration utility:

java -jar com.cisco.sametime.voicemail.config_1.1.3.1002.jar

Step 3 In Configuration utility window, enter values in the applicable fields. The fields are described in Table 1.

None of these fields are mandatory, but any fields that are left empty must be configured by users in Lotus Sametime on their workstations. Fields that are left empty do not overwrite Cisco Unified Messaging with Lotus Sametime configuration on the client, but updated fields will change configuration information when the configuration feature is installed on the client workstation.

Table 1 Fields in the Cisco Unified Messaging with Lotus Sametime Configuration Utility Window

id="com.cisco.sametime.voicemail.config.feature" version="1.1.3.1003"/>
</site>

Step 8 Save your changes and close the text editor application.

Step 9 For configuration changes to take effect, either set up Lotus Sametime to automatically update users by using a push update, or instruct users to update the plug-in from their Lotus Sametime client.


Note When doing any future updates to the configuration, remember to start with the latest configuration. For example, if the current configuration is 1.1.3.1003, you would update the 1.1.3.1003 jars to create a new 1.1.3.1004 configuration.



The following procedure requires administrator-provided information.

To Manually Configure Cisco Unified Messaging with Lotus Sametime on a User Workstation


Step 1 In Lotus Sametime Connect, from the File menu, click Preferences.

Step 2 In the Preferences window, in the tree control, expand Cisco and click Voicemail.

Step 6 Under Directory, in the Server field, enter the name or IP address of the corporate directory server.

Step 7 Under Directory, in the Port field, enter the number of the port used to communicate with the corporate directory server.

Step 8 Under Directory, in the Search Base field, enter the base (or root) of the directory service in which to search for names. The base can be a country, organization or other type of group.

Step 9 Under Directory, in the Search Field field, enter the field on which phone number look-ups are performed.

Step 10 If you want Sametime to display an icon indicating unheard voice messages, select the Show Global Message Waiting Indicator check box.

Step 11 If you want Sametime to maintain a log to assist in troubleshooting issues, select the Enable Detailed Logging check box.

Step 12 Click OK to accept the settings and to close the Preferences window.


Configuring Directory Services

For Cisco Unified Messaging with Lotus Sametime to resolve a caller to a Sametime contact, the LDAP server configured for Cisco Unity or Cisco Unity Connection should be the same directory server as the one used by the Sametime server.

If this is not possible, then the LDAP directory servers for Cisco Unity or Cisco Unity Connection and Sametime must use the same unique user name or user ID to represent the same user in each directory. Otherwise, the plug-in will not be able to resolve voice-message sender information into Sametime contacts.

For best results, regardless of the above configuration, you may optionally provision or provide users with the location of an LDAP directory server that contains this information, including matching user ID and phone number, which can be used as the setting for the Directory fields on the Cisco Voicemail Preferences page in the Lotus Sametime client application. This directory server may be the same as or different from the one used by the Sametime server.

Limitations and Restrictions

G.729a Encoded Voice Messages Cannot Be Played

Cisco Unified Messaging with Lotus Sametime plays only voice messages encoded with G.711.

MWI on Phone Does Not Change to Reflect Message State

For environments with Cisco Unity 5.0 or Cisco Unity 4.2 with IBM Lotus Domino as the message server, the message waiting indicator (MWI) on the phone does not change to reflect the state of a message changed from Lotus Sametime. For example, the new-message light on the phone will not turn off after the message is played from Lotus Sametime.

SSL Is Not Supported with Exchange 2003

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is not supported for environments with Cisco Unity 5.0 and Cisco Unity 4.2 with Microsoft Exchange 2003 as the message server. In these environments, secure user logon is provided by using an internal encryption-based authentication module. When NT Lan Manager (NTLM) is enabled on the Exchange server, this module utilizes the NTLM protocol to provide a secure login that ensures that credentials are not sent as clear text, even with unencrypted connections. Cisco Unified Messaging with Lotus Sametime will attempt to use the NTLMv2 protocol first and, in the event of failure, will fall back to the NTLMv1 protocol.

Update Sites

Lotus Sametime does not support simultaneous updates from multiple update sites. Selecting more than one update site and trying to install a feature will cause a NullPointerException.

Caveats

This section lists any Severity 1, 2, or 3 caveats for this release.
