Advantages of hooking CCMs into Win2K3 Active Directory?
What is the advantage of integrating Call Manager 3.3.(3) with Active Directory? The SE that recently installed out 3.3.(3) CallManagers didn't integrate it with our AD domain and claimed that the system would run fine without the integration.
Re: Advantages of hooking CCMs into Win2K3 Active Directory?
Two issues, and I'm not sure to which you refer. If you are talking about adding the CCM server to a AD Domain, don't do it. Last I heard, Cisco did not support that, and strongly recommended keeping CCM server as workgroup servers outside the AD.
On the other hand, if you are talking about integrating the DC Directory with AD, that definitely has advantages. Mostly, it creates a single directory structure. With integrated AD, when a user is created in AD, that user will immediately appear in the Corp Directory on the phones. And when a user leaves, removing him for AD immediately removes him from the Corp Directory. This saves a step in any add/move/change.
However, it is completely optional and you can get by prefectly fine without it.
