Moodle LDAP integration
Anyone done it?
I need to enter the contexts item which shows where in the active directory to look but I'm a bit confused what to write. Their example is below but how does this relate to my AD structure?
Has anyone been through this?
ldap_contexts = ou=moodleusers,dc=example,dc=com
It's the OU where your users live, usually cn=users. then the fully qualified domain eg dc=schoolname,dc=example,dc=com.
are you just looking for authentication , or full AD/SIMS integration?
We integrate here, but we were just told the LDAP string by our network operations team. I found this package useful for working out what is avaliable via ldap: http://www-unix.mcs.anl.gov/~gawor/ldap/
The context is the location of users in your structure.
My top OU for users is 'All Users' and my DNS domain name is carrhill.lancs.sch.uk. Thus my LDAP context is the following.
Perfect exactly what I was looking for! the sch.uk thing threw me but it makes perfect sense now.
