    intgegrating moodle with active directory homedirectories

    Anyone managed to get this going?

    current setup:

    Ubuntu 6.06
    Moodle 1.7
    Apache 2
    Pesky 2003 active directory controllers and for LDAP

    Have downloaded moodle block SMB_WEB_CLIENT and followed the instructions

    We can login to moodle OK via LDAP so that's fine.

    We've tested to make sure we can mount via smbmount from the command line to a windows share and this works (after having figured out the syntax).

    Does my syntax below look OK?

    ################################################## #################
    # Array of windows share strings to convert to smb strings
    # i.e. '\\myserver' => 'mydom/myserver' would replace '\\myserver'
    # in a share string with mydom/myserver
    #edit the config file to include smb replacement strings for home dir #shares - $smb_cfg->cfgWinShareToSmb - e.g. the
    #windows share '\\netserv1\guysfolder' might need to #be 'studentdomain/netserv1/guysfolder' for smbclient to read it. #Therefore you would need a config entry as follows:
    #
    #$smb_cfg->cfgWinShareToSmb=array(
    # '\\netserv1'=>'studentdomain/netserv1'
    #);

    $smb_cfg->cfgWinShareToSmb=array(
    '\\netserv1\staff$'=>'schooladdomain/netserv1/staff$'
    );

    However I'm getting a few errors, namely NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED as a popup when you try to use the block, and a few PHP errors (which are probably as a result of the above).

    Any pointers would be great

    I can't find the block you're talking about, can you provide a link?

    Sorry, not had chance to play with this yet. I've been distracted by mailman and cups.

    Hi Geoff,

    Just wondering if you have luck getting this work... I've tried but can't get anywhere with it.
