LDAP problem - CCM 5.04 vs. Novell eDirectory

Hi all

We have problems with synchronizing LDAP users from Novell eDirectory to Callmanager 5.04.

Tested Configuration:

CCM5 - system version:, sdministration version:

CCM5 LDAP Settings:

System->LDAP System->LDAP Server Type = Netscape or SUN One LDAP Server

System->LDAP System->LDAP Attribute for User ID = uid

Created a new LDAP configuration with LDAP manager and password. A top most organization unit container was selected as a LDAP User Search Base, where there are at least 50 users in 5 subcontainers. Only 20 of them were synchronized to CCM's internal directory. The sync job appears to be stuck or runs forever without any sign of progression.

Tested against two Novell LDAP servers

Novell Netware 6.5 SP5 , eDirectory verze Novell OES Linux SP2, eDirectory verze

Please could anyone help?

Many thanks



Re: LDAP problem - CCM 5.04 vs. Novell eDirectory

Directories are specialized databases that are optimized for a high number of reads and searches, and occasional writes and updates. Directories typically store data that does not change often, such as employee information, user privileges on the corporate network, and so on.

Another aspect of directories is that they are extensible, which means that the type of information stored in them can be modified and extended. The term directory schema refers to the type of stored information and the rules it obeys.

The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) provides applications with a standard method for accessing and potentially modifying the information stored in the directory. This capability enables companies to centralize all user information in a single repository available to several applications, with a remarkable reduction in maintenance costs through the ease of adds, moves, and changes.
