Provision phonebook in Tandberg Management Suite

To be able to add Movi2 endpoints to phonebooks on systems registered in TMS, TMS should automagically create an external source and a provisioning phonebook when the provisioning key is installed on the system. If this for some reason does not happen, here’s how to add one: (or to verify that the phonebook was installed correctly)

In TMS, go to: Phone Book > Manage External Source

If there is an external source there that is called “Provisioning Source”, chances are that the phone book was installed correctly. If not, add a new external source and select “TANDBERG Provisioning Directory” as source type.

The rest of the fields should be like this:

Connection Details
Name Provisioning Source
Default Bandwidth for Imported Entries 384 kbps
Force Default Bandwidth (all entries, not only Auto entries) Unchecked
IP Address/DNS localhost
Username CN=Directory Manager
Password TANDBERG
Advanced Connection Details
LDAP Port Number Blank
Search Base (DN) dc=provisioning
Search Scope Recursive
Custom LDAP Filter Blank
Field on User Object to Prefix Display Name in TMS displayName

With this setup, movi users are added to the phone book on the format “<firstname> <lastname> <provisioningprofile>”. I will try some different settings to see if I can filter and change the format in the phonebook. I will add this in a later post.

After this, create a new phonebook and connect it to the new external source.
