I have set up AD sync with cm 6.1, Just wanted to check that if I am not using LDAP authentication does the password I have set in AD for each user sync across initially? the password field is populated but it only works if I reset the password from CM, when I do a sync does it set the password to a default?
No, the password does not get replicated to CUCM from AD. Not sure what the default is. Use BAT to reset all pwds to a known default.
LDAP Auth works pretty well, why aren't you using it?
