Re: How can i add a user picture in CUPC

Good information in the Installation Guide for

Cisco Unified Personal Communicator:

Photo Setting Attribute and Format for Windows Active Directory -

By default, Cisco Unified Personal Communicator uses the jpegPhoto LDAP attribute, which is present

in the Windows 2003 Active Directory schema. By contrast, the Windows 2000 Active Directory uses

the thumbnailPhoto attribute. You can change the field in which Cisco Unified Personal Communicator

looks for the photo through the LDAP attribute map in Cisco Unified Presence Administration described

in the “Configuring the LDAP Attribute Map” section on page 2-20.

You cannot configure Cisco Unified Presence, Cisco Unified Personal Communicator, or the Windows

Active Directory with image URLs because the image data must be stored in Active Directory as a

base-64 encoded JPEG binary object.

You can use any application that supports storing photos to LDAP servers; for example,

http://phpldapadmin.sourceforge.net/.

For the photo to be displayed in the contact details in Cisco Unified Personal Communicator, the user

must have permission to read it; that is, the Read/List All attributes on the subtree must be correct. You

set this through the AD Directory Administrator tool or through ADSI EDIT.

Googlefu to get pictures into AD:

Re: How can i add a user picture in CUPC

Hi,

I'm trying to have photos in personnal communicator. I did what the admin guide says but I can't see any photo.

I used en software called LDAP editor to fill the jpegphoto attribute in the active directory.

With a sniffer (wireshark), I can see that personnal communicator effectively receive the jpegphoto attribute from the active directory.

But the photo does not appear ....

Is there a way to validate that the information contained in the jpegphoto attribute is ok for personnal communicator ?

Or is there a software that can retrieve the photo from the base64 encoded information in the jpegphoto attribute as personnal communicator does ?

Else, Any help would be great !!

Thanx,

Bastien.
