Automatic Configuration of Windows Clients

Hi Folks,

We're rolling out Jabber to our users but would like to avoid users having to make the selection between webex and presence, and entering the address and domain of the presence server manually.  Is there a registry key or some other way of pushing this to the clients we deploy?  Ideally we'd have it start on Windows startup and log them in automatically too.

Re: Automatic Configuration of Windows Clients

Hi,

a first thing to check might be the installation guide:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/docs/voice_ip_comm/jabber/Windows/9_2/JABW_BK_C9731738_00_jabber-windows-install-config_chapter_0100.html

It explains how to use the installer with a BAT file for example to preset the settings.

Best regards,

Thomas.

Automatic Configuration of Windows Clients

Hi,

I would use BAT for that:

1. Create the services and the service profile, enable one user for IM&Presence using the service profile

2. Export all users using BAT in CUCM (Bulk Administration->users->Export Users, run immediately, then change to Bulk Administration->Job Scheduler, when your job is completed you can download the export file using Bulk Administration->Upload/Download Files)

3. Change the file extension from txt to csv and edit the file with your favorite CSV editor, so you enable all users for IM&Presence and add the service profile

4. Upload the file again with the last step in 2.

5. Use Bulk Administration->Users->update Users->custom file to update the user information.

Best regards,

Thomas.

Automatic Configuration of Windows Clients

Thanks for answering Tweiderh I had tried doing that initially and the msiexec.exe process that installs it would simply hang in the background but it must've been a localised problem because pushing it out with config manager has been successful.  All I need to figure out from here is how to enable 600 users for Unified CM IM and presence.
