In Appliance based CM (CM 5+) the local directory has been integrated into the Informix database. There is no seperate application for directory.

Active Directory is fully supported and much improved LDAP integration over CM 4 and earlier as well.

appliance models are the Linux versions 5.x and above

SQL and DCD are no longer used, we only use informix and both the DB and the directory info are in there. it's the equivalent of what DCD was on 4.x

if you do not plan to use AD you're going to use that one since you don't get a choice



if this helps, please rate

Appliance - Linux

With internal directory you add users directly in CallManager, you specify the passweord there, etc. Authentication takes place against CallManager when users login to ccmuser page for example. All the information is stored locally in Informix database. Windows based CM 4.X and below stored all this info in DC Directory locally vs SQL database.

HTH, please rate all useful posts!

Can anyone point to me to information on how to query the informix database (specifically the directory portion) for use in an application? We are hoping to present our users with a directory lookup option off of our portal...

I rate any helpful replies.
