VCS Starterpack - internal phonebook


I have a question regarding Phonebook services on VCS Starterpack (X8.1). Is it possible to leverage the internal

Phonebook directory for all the registered devices? I mean - locally registered Jabber Video (MOVI) clients on Windows,

Jabber for iPad and video endpoints (Profile etc.). It is now showing only Windows clients.

Already tried to setup ID/Type/URL (Phonebook Server 1) on Profile endpoints to use the same configuration details

Windows Jabber clients use but this is probably not the right way.

ID: default

Type: VCS

URL: phonebook@video.domain

As seen in application log on Profile, outgoing SUBSCRIBE to phonebook@video.domain returns "200 OK".

Appreciate any help.

VCS Starterpack - internal phonebook

Hehe, I never tried the phonebooks on the starter pack.

Not aware that there is a real option. I think there is no configuration for phonebooks on the VCS-E-SP,

at least I do not recall having seen any configuration option in older versions.

What kind of endpoints do you use? If its a E20, EX60/90 or MX200 you could use the provisioning,

that might add phonebook entries for these and phonebooks to these endpoints.

If the endpoint type is not supported by the VCS-E-SP it would not work.

I am not sure if only active prticipants are shown, what you could try to do is to create user accounts

for these unknown endpoints, maybe that's a workaround to at least let these systems show up in the phonebook

but that would not help them to see it. (sure you could try to configure the user/password settings)

VCS Starterpack - internal phonebook

Thanks Martin,

your suggestion is fine, but as you mentioned it's just a workaround. If I create "dummy" account in the VCS

I lost presence information. And this won't solve my phonebook problem on "Profile-s".

The endpoint compbination I'm talking about are Jabbers (Windows, iPad) and Profiles (42/65), so no E/EX/MX Series. :/


Re: VCS Starterpack - internal phonebook

Thee might be a reason why it is called "Starterpack" ;)

Feel free to contact your Cisco partner to file a feature request.

Besides that if you need more features or grow look into a upgrading your
Vcs and add tms. The be6000 could also be worth investigating.
