The DLS Device Management is integrated in Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony Assistant's subscriber management. On its graphical user interface it permits the display, creation and essential configuration of multiple virtual devices per subscriber.
Default DLS Server
A new attribute is introduced to the DLS list maintained in the Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony Assistant to indicate which DLS server shall be used as the "system default".
At the time a Business Group is created from Assistant via Add
or Quick Add BG
, the BG attribute 's Default DLS Server
is initially set to the system-wide Default DLS server, or null, if the latter doesn't exist. The administrator may select another (or no) DLS server at any time.
Device Plug&Play Settings in Subscriber Creation Dialogs
When creating a new subscriber in either the Add Subscriber
or Quick Add Subscriber
dialog, the administrator decides whether or not a Phone
shall be created. If so, he may further specify the device's ID (=MAC address for phones). In the Add Subscriber
dialog it is also possible to assign an existing DLS device profile to the device.
DLS Device Management comprises a list view, which displays all DLS devices using the directory number of a preselected subscriber as the Terminal Number or line/DSS (Direct Station Selection) key as well as the devices that are registered in Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony and missing from DLS. Information about registration to the Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony is also incorporated, to facilitate quick diagnosis of device/subscriber configuration inconsistencies that may result in registration problems.
The Device Management user interface allows an administrator to add, display, edit and delete devices for an existing subscriber. In addition to basic device settings, it is also possible to view and edit the device's key layout. On the edit side, only a limited set of features and Line/DSS (Direct Station Selection) keys are supported.
