For a specific (third party Windows) application that is really only intended for use with Active Directory, I need to be able to use the objectGUID attribute on our UCS LDAP. I’ve got almost everything in working, including some schema extensions that where needed (took me a lot of time to figure out) but now I’m stuck on the objectGUID. This application needs to get the objectGUID from the LDAP to work, but right now the objectGUID attribute is not assigned nor can I add it to a contact or user because apparently the attribute does exist as I get the message that it is immutable.
Is there any expert out there that can help me achieve my goal:
- add the attribute ‘objectGUID’ to (at least) the contacts in my LDAP
- have it so that new ‘contacts’ also get this attribute
- have it behave like it would on AD where it is universally unique
Help is much appreciated…
Some background info, probably not needed for the issue I have …
The application is a voicemail system from Avaya (a well known enterprise UC vendor). The application needs to get configuration details from AD (or in my case LDAP) to be able to add its mailboxes. There is no way I can have the voicemail system use a different attribute then the ‘objectGUID’ - there is no configuration option available, nor will Avaya help me since it’s not supported (ie. they cannot/will not support the application when it is not used as it is intended). Soooo close…
