How can we hide system users in CM 5.0. With 5.0 now there are application users and end users. I tried defining IPCC administrator user as application user, but that user cannot be used to setup a CRS administrator. You have to define the IPCC admin user as an end user. This user does show up in Corp. Directory. Does the same old tricks in this post have to be used or any other alternatives are available ?
Afaik there is no way to do this in CM 5.X but you can trick the system in AD, by adding [ front of any of the users First name or Last name and do a resync of CM LDAP to AD.
That kinda sucks. Any plans roadmapped to make this happen natively in CM ?. With this deployment users will be in DCD.So looks like i got no choice.
Just picking up this thread relating to hiding users shown in a corporate directory search.
I am working with a customer on a CCM6.0(1) deployment and the requirement is to synchronize with AD. The synchronization peice works a treat, but we (as per the last post) need to hide system and template users.
I understand the 'CiscoPrivateUser' workaround for 4.x and also adding '[' for versions of 5.x, however neither work with 6.0(1). How would I best go about achieving this?
We had to create separate containers and re-run the LDAP synch, as we couldn't find an alternative workaround.
We recently upgraded to 6.1 from 6.0. I know that "CiscoPrivateUser" won't work in 6.0.
Any luck with 6.1? We can not create separate containers, and I'd love to remove all the Admin accounts ect from the Corporate Directory.
Thanks in advance,
I did see that, but adding a special character to the first or last name could get pretty ugly. Like the gentlemen mentioned it might cause problems with other applications (SharePoint).
At this point I will open a TAC case and will share any new information. Thanks
Did you ever find a fix for this one? I have the same situation where we migrated to 6.01 and the customer is a heavy sharepoint user
Nope, there is no special fix for this issue. Maybe you can be creative in your OU structure and put the hidden users in their own OU. Then you can point the LDAP lookup just to a specific OU or multiple OUs...correct me if I'm wrong but you can put up to 3 "LDAP User Search Base" entries.
