    There were a CUCM 5.1 running in our working environment.I would like to know if there were any way could hide or re-position the "Personal Directory" display from the "Directories" menu of the IP phone.
     
    If the answer were "Yes", please kindly give me some information about that.
     
    Thanks for any reply.

    AFAIK, no, you cannot do it.

    Capabilities for hiding/removing the 'stock' Phone Services were introduced in UCM7.0(1).
     
    For CM5, it is possible to configure the base URL that the phones request in order to retrieve the initial Directories (in Enterprise Parameters, or on an individual phone basis.)  You can change this URL to point to your web server, and serve a modified CiscoIPPhoneMenu XML object per your requirements.

    I think that you might be misunderstand my concern.
     
    I just want to know if i could make change on the default directory page file located on CM5 server rather than pointed the URL to the new xml file on other web server in the phone configuration menu.
     
    Thanks and look for any further suggestion.

    It is not possible for end-users to modify the actual Directories web page on the UCM server.  You could do this on CM4 (though it was not recommended or supported)...but not possible on CM5+ with the closed OS/appliance model. 
     
    I think your options are:
     
    - Replace the Directories URL with a custom XML service
    - Upgrade to UCM7 which provides admin ui tools to modify exposed default services
