Microsoft ®  Active Directory ® Integration

When you integrate the Polycom ® RealPresence ® DMA system ® with your Microsoft ® Active Directory ® , the enterprise users (Active Directory members) become Conferencing Users in the Polycom RealPresence DMA system. Each enterprise user is (optionally) assigned a conference room or Virtual Meeting Room (VMR). The conference room IDs are typically generated from the enterprise users’ phone numbers.

Once integrated with Active Directory, the Polycom RealPresence DMA system accesses the directory under the following circumstances:

Nightly, to update the user and group information in its cache.

Whenever you force a cache refresh using the Update button.

To authenticate login passwords.

To create or delete Polycom conference contacts whenever a publishable VMR is created or deleted (only if the RealPresence DMA system is integrated with Microsoft Lync 2013 or Skype for Business and contact creation is enabled).

In a super-clustered environment, one cluster is responsible for integrating with Active Directory and updating the cache daily, and the cache is available to all clusters through the replicated shared data store. The other clusters only connect to Active Directory to authenticate user credentials.
