Hi linuxformat,

LDAP (or more correctly, the datastore behind it) is like a database, where you can extend the structure of individual entries to your liking.

> only found the first name and second name and PIN

This looks like you're using some front-end to access your LDAP store - despite the flexibility to store many different types of information, the application used to access the data store has to support these "fields".

Once you've found out what your application actually supports, you might need to adopt the LDAP entry's definition by adding appropriate "objectClasses" to the entry - those objectClasses define which attributes are mandantory and/or optionally available with each entry. Oh, and you may be able to use many applications against the same set of entries, especially when it comes to user definitions: system logins, e-mail delivery (MTAs like Postfix), support for address books in mail user agents (like kmail or Thunderbird), web server access and much more can all take their information from a single set of user definitions.

Seems like you're rather new to this subject, so I suggest that you start by telling us which application(s) you're using to access your data - that way, we might be able to assist in understanding what can be done and how to do it.

Regards,
Jens

Yes Mr.jmozdzen

In fact my network working on cisco and the call manager need authentication from ldap to take the information from it and put it in the phone like Extension numers.

And I configured ldap from yast and added users from yast on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server.

make that "Jens" ;)

From what I grasped from the docs available online, Cisco CM 5.x mentions this separation (auth/profile). Unfortunately, I've seen no easily available hint as to which standard/non-standard attributes are used to create i.e. directory information. Looking at the LDAP entry for my user, I see (amonst many others) "homePhone" and "mobile" attributes. These are part of the class "inetOrgPerson", which is rather standard, but Cisco CM would need to support these attributes.

A quick search through the net exposed the following article on integrating Cisco Call Manager with an external LDAP directory (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucm/srnd/4x/42drctry.html). Does this apply to your situation and help you with your questions?

Jens
