Hi All,

Does anyone know a way of changing the user field that the CM looks up against LDAP?

In our directory we have first name and last name. But we also have preferred name...But we cant look that up?

Are there any work arounds for this?

in CUCM 5.x and 6.x you can do this thru the integration of the LDAP server (and the options are limited), in previous versions there is no way to do so



if this helps, please rate

We are using an LDAP Server. But what we want to do, is instead of using the GivenName as the First name, we want to use Display Name. But we are unable to change that in CM. Is there any LDAP tools that can do this?

Oh I just ran into this, think Cisco hardcoded some things, which sucks! The one that is intereting to see is that MS added a ipPhone category to their LDAP. Good one MS!
