Does CCM 5.x support DCD as directory any more? I do not see DCD service. I am accessing a demo server now which has AD configured, but seems no option to change back to DCD. Please advise.

Hi CF,


CCM 5.X no longer has an embedded DC Directory. Have a look;


In this release of Cisco Unified CallManager:


There is no embedded DC Directory


There is no plug-in for AD/ND


There is no schema extension on the Customer Directory when integrating with AD/ND


User information is always stored in the Informix Database


Cisco products do not store any data in the customer directory


Cisco products are fully functional even when the customer directory is not reachable


User information is populated in the database using a standard LDAP connector (Cisco DirSync)


Products always access the database for user information and never access the Customer Directory


From this 5.x doc;

Hope this helps!
