LDAP Directory

LDAP Directory

This section describes how to configure an LDAP directory.

Prerequisites

An LDAP server is available. An IP phone can connect to the Windows 2008 Server AD or EUA server as the LDAP directory server.
  • For details about how to install and configure an AD server, see Editing the Microsoft AD2008 User.
  • For details about how to install and configure the EUA server, see the Cloud VC Product Documentation.

Context

Based on X.500, LDAP is an application protocol for accessing and maintaining distributed directory information services through the TCP/IP protocol stack. It allows users to quickly obtain static data about people or resources.

LDAP is applicable to storage of data that needs to be obtained in different locations but does not change frequently. According to its applicable data type, LDAP is a good choice for storing the enterprise organizational structure and the phone numbers of enterprise employees.

eSpace 8950 supports the following LDAP directory functions:
  • Searching for a contact: On the directory screen, enter your search terms and press the Search softkey, eSpace 8950 will search for matching contacts from the LDAP server and display the contact information. Then, you can select a contact and place a call or save the contact to your local contact list.
    NOTE:
    In the search results returned by the LDAP server, if the home number, office number, mobile number, and soft client of a contact are all empty, eSpace 8950 does not display that contact.
  • Search for the calling party' information: After receiving a call, eSpace 8950 searches the local contact list for the calling number. If no records are found, eSpace eSpace 8950 searches the LDAP server for the contact and displays the search result on its LCD screen.
  • Searching for user dialed numbers: On the predial or dial screen, each time you press a number key, eSpace 8950 searches the contact list for that number. If records are found, eSpace 8950 displays them on its LCD screen. If no records are found, eSpace 8950 searches the LDAP server when the dial time expires and displays the search result on its LCD screen.
NOTE:
LDAP is an industry universal protocol for accessing online directory services. Data is transmitted in plaintext. Ensure that the LDAP function is used in a secure network.

Configuration Methods

You can configure an LDAP directory using three different methods, as listed in Table 5-3.
NOTE:
In a telepresence network environment, the IP phone automatically obtains the authentication user name, password, server address, and redundancy configuration of the LDAP server and makes them take effect during registration.
