Calendaring & Cisco Unified Presence

Unanswered Question
Apr 19th, 2010

Cisco Unified Presence pulls Free/Busy presence information from Exchange using WebDAV. Is there any limitation on the number of exchange servers that the CUP server could connect to?

Also, is there any way to pull calendar presence from the client itself? For example - CUPC uses your Outlook installation to read calendar and automatically updates presence on your CUPC client.

I have this problem too.

A single CUPS Cluster can integrate calendar information with one Exchange Cluster.  Actually, when you set it up, you have to provide the IP or hostname of the server that the CUPS cluster will connect to, but it is probably possible to use some sort of DNS-based load-sharing to allow for multiple servers within the same Exchange cluster to respond.  But if you want to connect to multiple Exchange clusters, you will need multiple CUPS clusters.

And there is no ability today to gather calendar info from the Outlook client.  One important thing to note:  The CUPC does not gather this information.  The CUPS (the server component) communictates with the Exchange server for this.  Getting the clients involved to gather calendar info would be a significant change.
