Introduction

A directory server stores the directory information for your company in a logical structure that organizes user, group, and access information for easy retrieval and maintenance. Use Directory Services for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace to synchronize your directory server information with your Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system profiles.

Directory Services for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace supports the following directory servers:

Microsoft Active Directory 2000, 2003, and 2008: Microsoft Active Directory allows you to store, access, and manipulate organizational information about users and resources, and manage all elements of a networked environment, such as computers, groups, users, policies, and other user-defined objects.

Netscape/SunOne/iPlanet LDAP Directory Server Version 4 and Version 5: Netscape/SunOne/iPlanet is a general purpose LDAP directory that stores, publishes, and centrally manages users and network resources.

Cisco Unified Communications Manager directory: Synchronizations of user data from the Cisco Unified Communications Manager directory allow the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system to support IP telephony users who are configured in Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

With Directory Services for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, you can easily integrate the information that is stored on your corporate directory server with your Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system. By using LDAP technology, Directory Services creates an all-inclusive meta-directory that combines and synchronizes Active Directory or Netscape/SunOne/iPlanet directory information with Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system information.

Benefits of Directory Services for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace include the following:

For new Cisco Unified MeetingPlace enterprise systems, Directory Services eliminates the need to manually create new profiles in the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system.

For existing systems, Directory Services simplifies ongoing maintenance of user information in the system. Name changes, additions, deletions, and changes in status can be automatically propagated from your corporate directory to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system.
