Cisco Jabber without Active Directory

Hi Experts,

I'm trying to integrate Cisco IM & Presence without Active Directory. I have couple of questions,

1. Do I need to create 'UC Service',

if YES, what would be the Host Name/IP Address

What is the difference between Directory & Enhanced Directory?

2. What is 'Use UDS for Contact Resolution' in Service Profile?

3. What exactly UDS in the jabber-config.xml file? 


Can I provide my CUCM IP Address there?

If we have AD, can we give AD Server IP Address there?

any particular reason why you

any particular reason why you would want to hard set the AD servers IP address in your Jabber config file?  Because it should just work by using your windows AD server on your domain (unless of course you are running another OS).

You do NOT integrate IM&P to

You do NOT integrate IM&P to any directory, IM&P will get the users from CUCM via AXL.

You configure the Jabber clients to integrate to a directory, because otherwise, you do not see friendly names, you'll see their JID, you cannot search for users to add them, and since there is no phone number, you can only call them if you know their DN/URI, there will be no option to call in the user.

UDS means you will use CUCM for the directory.

You can configure this via UC Services/Service profiles, or via the .xml, the first option is preferred.

The Jabber documentation has a whole chapter dedicated to the directory integration of Jabber, have you already reviewed it??
