Moodle 2 and the CMIS intergration block
We are attempting to install moodle with CMIS facility intergration. We managed to get the Facility module to work on moodle 1.9 but moodle 2 doesn`t like the block.
Has anyone been able to get this to work?
Not been able to find anything on google at the moment.

A little more info. The block I am looking at is this one Moodle.org: Modules and plugins which we have installed and got working perfectly under Moodle 1.9.
However, as we are hoping to launch a new VLE we would really like to start on Moodle 2.0. The block fails to install on Moodle 2 and seems not want to be hacked to work on it!

It's doable, but my workload is too high at the moment to get the block rewritten... have been juggling stuff for a few months now to try and get me the free time to get it resolved, but work are being slightly less than co-operative on the matter!

Hi Rob - this block has now been rewritten for Moodle 2.2 - drop me a line if you want to try it out...

Have now submitted the rewritten Facility to Moodle block to the Moodle 2.2 plugins database at Moodle.org.

Have you got a link to the block on Moodle.org Marci?
Browsing through Plugins directory and unable to find your updated version, maybe a delay in the approval process...

Yep... Full manual approval required on new submissions so it'll take a while... But, if you fire me your email address by PM on here I can hook you up with a download linky.

Has anyone succeeded getting the new CMIS integration plugin for moodle 2.2 working on a moodle running in a WIMP setup? To be speciic, we've a new Windows 2008 R2 server, running IIS, PHP 5.3.13 and MySQL 5.1.61. I'm trying to connect to the CMIS server, but am having problems understanding exactly which SQL connection DLLs etc are required in PHP.
Also, can anyone give me a pointer as to what the SSQL DataSource Name should be? The server details I have working ijn my old CMIS plug in config file are host=cmis-server and dbname=CMIS_ADMIN. In order to use these as a DSN, what format should I put them in?

Is their any chance this will be updated to Moodle 2.6?
Also does anyone have this working successfully where Moodle is installed on an Ubuntu server in a Windows domain?

Possibly (if it doesn't already work with it - have you tried it?)... although I think this will be the last update it sees as work have decided to switch to SIMS so I'll no longer have access to a Facility setup to develop from. We've run it fine on uBuntu, CentOS and FreeBSD without issues.
Thanks to Marci from:

I haven't tried it with 2.6 yet.... I was just going by the working versions.
We're setting up our first Moodle system (Moodle & Linix noob) so will stick with 2.5 to start with and if that goes ok then I think we'll try out 2.6 to see if that works.

Some users have already reported it as working (somewhere - on moodle.org in the comments I think), hence I haven't looked at it already... ultimately though, if no-one takes on maintenance of it beyond end of May (when our Facility license expires) then 2.6’ll probs be the last version it works with so may be worth in your longer-term plan considering the options available for ZiLink or Overnet etc

Ok... thanks for taking the time to reply
