We have installed a CUCM 6.1(2) cluster for our customer and soon will add 2 CUC 7.0 servers for voicemail as well. The CUCM cluster will be integrated with customer's Active Directory shortly. A couple of quick questions come to mind.
1) The CUCM was built with all the end-users already. These end-users have the same userID that is being used in AD. Will this integration wipe out all these users, meaning we'll have to configure all the CUCM-configurable parameters again, or would it keep these settings in the CUCM and just make these end-users into an integrated User? If former, should we delete all these users first before the integration?
2) It's my understanding that with Unity Connection 7.0, you can pull in users from AD, as well as creating them locally and importing them from CUCM. What would be best practice here if all the users are already imported from AD into CUCM? Should we just import those users from CUCM (that came from AD) into CUC? That's what makes the most sense, but I thought I'd ask anyway.
Thanks for any responses in advance.
