You can use the RGSCOT.exe command-line utility to create Contact objects in the Active Directory Domain Services. The Contact object is stored in the container created by Office Communications Server. After you create a Contact object, you can associate it with a Response Group, or workflow. A Contact object can be associated with only one workflow. Create a Contact object for each workflow that you plan to deploy.

The RGSCOT.exe command that you use to create a Contact object has the following format:

Copy Code
RGSCOT /Create /PoolFQDN:<FQDN of pool>
/DisplayName:<display name> 
/DisplayNumber:<display number> /PrimaryUri:<SIP URI of
Contact object> 
/LineUri:tel:+<actual line number>


The following example creates a Contact object called HR:

Copy Code
RGSCOT /Create / /DisplayName:HR 
This command-line example has been separated into multiple lines for readability. You actually type it on one line without breaks at the command line.

  1. On a computer where the Office Communications Server 2007 R2 administrative tools are installed, log on as a member of the RTCUniversalServerAdminsgroup.
