What problems ?? IF callmanager 4.2 is changed from workgroup to domain???

HELLO

Does anybody know, what are the problems if I change the callmanager 4.2 from workgroup to the domain?

I changed because my client insist to do it, but I don?t really know the main reason no to do it.

ANY HELP WILL BE VERY APRECIATED.

REGARDS

Hi Walter,

Here is the Cisco reasoning from the 4.x SRND Guide;

Adding Cisco Unified CallManager Servers to a Domain

Adding the Cisco Unified CallManager servers to a Microsoft Windows domain differs substantially from integrating Cisco Unified CallManager with an external directory. Although these operations do not exclude each other, they are completely independent and have different implications:

Adding Cisco Unified CallManager servers to a Microsoft Windows Active Directory (AD) domain could cause domain policies to be applied to the Windows 2000 Server operating system, and the addition affects only the management of the Cisco Unified CallManager server itself.

Integrating Cisco Unified CallManager with an external directory (such as Microsoft Active Directory or Netscape Directory Server) causes Cisco Unified CallManager to store all its user information and preferences in that directory, but it does not affect management of the Cisco Unified CallManager server itself.

Cisco recommends that you keep Cisco Unified CallManager servers as **workgroup servers**. However, if you want to add the servers to a domain, avoid applying domain policies to the server that could interfere with its normal operation.

From this good SRND doc;

Hope this helps!
