Active Directory Configuration

The SwyxWare AD extension snapin must be registered in Active Directory. That registration will be done by SwyxWare ConfigWizard or manually by running IpPbxAdExtConfig.exe. Both tools perform the following configuration:

·         The configurationnamingcontext is retrieved from LDAP://rootDSE. For a company mycorp.com this might be CN=Configuration,DC=mycorp,DC=com.
·         The “DisplaySpecifiers” child of the above object has several children named with locale IDs. On each of these “locale” objects the following properties on the specified child objects are extended. A GUID is added to the property.

By using IpPbxAdExtConfig.exe, which you can find in the SwyxWare program fodler or, alternatively, on the Swyxware CD under 'Tools\AD Extension', it's possbile to remove the registration information from Active Directory. Start a command prompt window with domain administrator rights and execute

IpPbxAdExtConfig /u

By using parameter /v the current state of the registration is displayed. With /r the registration information will be added again.
