I am confused regarding the integration between CUCM and LDAP.
As I know I have two ways to integrate:
What I know if I integrate CUCM with LDAP I will not be able to add users to CUCM DB localy. and this case I can authenticate users through LDAP if authentication enabled or via CUCM DB if Synch enabled.
but what if i need to add user to CUCM DB and I do not need to add it to LDAP DB? like tea boy, I need to add his information to CUCM DB so I can see his name and extension in Corporate directory. In the same time I am not able to add him to LDAP.
You will not be able to see an application user in the Corporate Directory, having your teaboy as an application user would just let him login to say the CCMuser page, but it wouldn't make him appear in the directory.
You're going to have to add the teaboy to the LDAP database if you want him the directory when LDAP sync is turned on.
The distinction here is:
LDAP sync: Populates your End Users - end users appear in the corporate directory
LDAP authentication: Can only be turned on if LDAP sync is on, and lets an end user login to say the CCMuser page using the same login details as are kept in the LDAP database.
