DC Directory Log in issues

Hello all,

I have a person that needs to log onto the DC Directory to run queries against it for a home grown app. He is using Directory-Manager for the user name and "ciscocisco" for the password but it is not letting him in. Any one have any direction on this for me?

All replies will be rated.

Thanks in advance!

The following link describes the process of giving anonymous access to browse the users folder, but you could also modify the process to create a user/password with the ability to query the directory.

Hope this helps.

Hi Travis,

Just to add a note to Brandons good info, it sounds like the default Directory-Manager password has been changed at some point. If nobody remebers what it is you will have to recover/reset it;

CCMPWDChanger Tool

The CCMPWDChanger tool is used to change the passwords for Directory Manager, CCMSysUser, CCMAdministrator, and IPMASysUser.

From the Cisco CallManager, choose Start > Run, type CCMPWDChanger and press Enter.

Note: The CCMPWDChanger tool should be used only on the Cisco CallManager Publisher server.

From this doc;
