Directory button on Cisco phone work with AD? CME.

I have a couple of sites with Call Manager Express and Cisco 7965G phones.  When the users press the Directory button I want them to be able to browse the contents of our AD so they can dial by name.  How-to-do??

CME does not support integration to AD. You will need CUCM to do that.
well.. this can be done, but it isn't simple
the directory just points to a web service which produces a simple xml page with a search.

you can then point your phones directory at this web service..
like I said.. not simple

there is a project called open 79xx xml direcotry
that could be easily modified to point at an LDAP source.. or use LDAP to import its data.

I know I haven't helped much, but CME doesn't support this, so doing it this way will involve some development.
