Unity 4.0.3. Why can I have an alias with a dot or underscore when I'm importing users either from the Unity importtool or AD, but manually, I cannot. Does the dot and underscore may cause problem? Thank you.
The dot and underscore characters are not valid DNS names, so that is likely why the SA is not allowing them. (They wouldn't be allowed in a computer name, or a domain name.) However, for user and DL names, they are allowed as you can see. It's likely that the SA is being a little overzealous on what it filters. See this page for details about valid AD characters:
I actually have a client that is having the same problem. I imported their users into Unity and the import took the alias with a ".", but for day to day admin my client can't add a new Unity subscriber from the SA because it won't allow the "." in the alias. The workaround is to create the exchange account first and then import the user into Unity.....this is very inefficient.
This is causing me a big headache. I currently have a Voicemail only system and will be moving to Unified very soon. But in the mean time I would like to use an alias with a dot in (ie. Joe.Bloggs) as that is what the users is using as their E-mail alias.
This is causing me big problems as I will not be able to use the tools to import the users when I go to Unified messaging as the Voicemail alias will be different to the E-mail alias.
The short answer is that you don't.... That isn't entirely true while at
the same time it kind of is, but for the most part you don't configure
the softkeys. You enable or disable them via TCL. Here is the long
answer. Be sure to read the whole thing or e...
