Re: WebDialer problem

Have you try resetting the password for CCMSysUser in AD and verify it is the same in registry key under

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Cisco Systems, Inc.\Directory Configuration\AppUsers\CCMSysUser

(password is encrypted)

C:\>passwordutils cisco

Encrypted Password: 0c0a000a2c

Original Password: cisco

Decrypted Password: cisco

Any error in EV and reason code?

Are you able to authenticate to the Directory (try adding a user in CCMAdmin)

From where are you running the WebDialer?

Re: WebDialer problem

I compare the pwd of my ccmSysUser and the one in the registry, and they are the same.

Below the EV entry:

Re: WebDialer problem

Are you able to view user information in Global Directory? Are you able to add users in the Global Directory and is it getting added to AD?

From the error message it is clear that the Webdialer application is unable to contact the Directory. So, due to this it is unable to display you all user information and so, the Webdialer is not working.

Make sure that you have the host and lmhost files on the Callmanagers updated with the AD server's ip and hostname. Also make sure that the password that you have given to the CCMSysUser account in AD is the same as the un-encrypted value of the password of CCMSysUser in the registry of the Callmanager.

You can decrypt the password for CCMSysUser on the Callmanager using the commandline utility :


Also make sure that you restart the CTI manager service on the Primary and Secondary CTI servers.

Re: WebDialer problem

One more thing - are you trying to use it from one of the Callmanagers, or are you trying it from your PC?

If you are trying it from the Callmanager, try it from your user PC and then see the result. Make sure that you have your PC's host and lmhost files properly updated.
