I am facing the possibility of having to move to using UPN instead of samAccountName as my AD integration attribute as another division running on a separate AD forest want to utilise our CUCM 7.1(3) cluster.
We primarily use extension mobility. I assume once you go down the UPN path you have to logon to extension mobility on the phone using the whole [email protected] via DTMF? (ugly!!!)
It gets even trickier with Unity.
We have provided them "Linked Mailboxes" on our exchange environment. Following Microsoft's recommendation this is done by giving them a disabled AD account with mailbox in our Company1.com AD forest that is then linked through exchange to their active AD account (master account is the exchange term) in their Company2.com AD. There is a trust between the domains but passwords are not synched between the disabled and active AD accounts.
This all works nicely from an exchange / outlook perspective but doesn't look too simple to get them working as CUCM users with unified messaging. Unity can only see the disabled AD account in our AD.
All this was done without speaking to the voice team of course to see what the implications were for telephony both for existing users and the new. :-)
I have a UCCX 7.0(1) SR5 contact centre just to add to the mix :-)
Anyone been down this path before??
