Error: "LDAP Synch status is enabled. Cannot add users through BAT."
In 10.x it looks like Cisco has disallowed user imports (via BAT) into LDAP-integrated systems. Has anyone else run into this? Below is the error I'm receiving in the Job Status log file. The error implies that "it's a feature, not a bug". How are large companies supposed to import new phones/users when they open new branches or do a phone refresh? Breaking LDAP to do the import isn't a option because you have to blow away your LDAP directory config to do so - not to mention people wouldn't be able to log into Jabber or their user pages while it was broken. I'm hoping someone has a workaround or has already spoken with TAC about this.
So if a company has a large CUCM deployment and adds another branch (let's say 100 phones/users), I would have to go user by user and do the phone associations, profile associations, primary extensions, etc 100 times?
Is there a better way that I'm missing? That just doesn't seem logical. In previous versions (I'm not sure about 6.x in the link. I started with 7.x) I could have sworn that I could import from BAT even if LDAP was integrated. I would get an error and only the non-LDAP fields would get changed, but the changes, associations, etc. would still go through.
If I break LDAP, Jabber logins won't pass through while it's disabled so I can't do that without taking down Jabber. Also, Cisco makes you delete out your LDAP directories (search bases, etc) before you're allowed to uncheck/save the LDAP sync box. You then have to rebuild them to turn it back on (I've never understood why I can't just uncheck the box).
I guess I was just hoping Cisco had provided a reasonable way to do bulk user/phone imports on LDAP integrated systems.
