What are the pros/cons of integrating the Cisco UC Manager 7.x/8.x with Microsoft LDAP? As a side note we are doing a AD migration from 2003 to 2008.
How will extension mobility users be authenticated? Does the EM user name need to be the AD username? What about the EM authentication? Does it use AD or EM?
Currently, we have Cisco user names as first.lastname but I want to change the user name to their extension (much easier to type when logging into EM).
Additionally, we will be using Microsoft OCS with the CUCIMOC plug-in. Not sure if this plays into the question.
Looking forward to responses!
