Importing User Profiles to Node 1 From Cisco Unified Communications Manager or Active Directory

Before You Begin

  • Complete this procedure on Node 1.
  • Node 1 must be a Directory Service system.


Procedure

  1. On Node 1, sign in to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Administration Center.
  2. Go to User Configuration > Directory Service > Directory Service Configuration.
  3. Configure the following fields:
  4. Check Update Now for Update users interval.
  5. If this is the first time you are completing this procedure, check Perform full sync with Cisco Unified Communications manager.
  6. Enter the hostname of the Node 1 server for Hostname for Active Directory Service.
  7. Click Save.


What to Do Next

If you are configuring RSNA in a distributed deployment, enable authentication on Node 2.
