CUCM & LDAP integration

Hi,

Is it possible to integrate CUCM 8.0.3 with two different Microsoft AD forest for end user syncronization & authentication? If yes please let me know how?

Regards,

Hi AJ,

As far as I know, it's not possible to integrate CUCM with 2 different AD forests. It supports only a single AD forest at max with multiple trees/domains.

Hi Hillman,

Thanks for the link.

I have gone througth SRND in detail & it does not describe about multi - forest integration.

The other documnet require ADAM server for CUCM & multi forest AD integration. Is ADAM compulsary for multi forest integration. Will authorization also work in multi forest deployment?

Disclaimer: I have not deployed myself, but it seems rather intuitive.

From what I have read it would be required, otherwise you would not be able to authenticate against a second, third, etc. forest.

Note Microsoft Active Directory  Application Mode support is limited to those directory topologies  already supported with a native Active Directory connection. No  additional topologies, such as multi-forest, multi-tree single forest,  or global catalog are supported.

Re: CUCM & LDAP integration

So when Cisco speaks out both sides of it's mouth is the SRND the official doctrine?

Re: CUCM & LDAP integration

I didn't mean that to be as snarky as it sounded.  I mean it literally.  Which one of the conflicting articles "wins?"

Re: CUCM & LDAP integration

I think it might also be worth pointing out that synchronization and authentication are two different pieces that are only tangentially related.  You can pull users from multiple forests without ADAM, but authentication will require a single sign-on proxy esch. device.

Re: CUCM & LDAP integration

The info does seem conflicting, I found another place with the same statement. But a note on how to configure this.

Microsoft Active Directory Application Mode  support is limited to those directory topologies already supported with a  native Active Directory connection. No additional topologies, such as  multi-forest, multi-tree single forest, or global catalog are supported.

Since there is a whole note on this, it appears to be supported.
