    LDAP authentication - MoodleDocs

    If you get stuck on any portion, let us know.

    It's really easy once you've got holes punched into firewalls to allow them to talk to each other.

    Are you getting any error messages at all?

    I'll need to know more about how RM handles users so could you give me a full distinguished name of a typical user?

    If you have access to adsiedit this will give you all the CNs for OUs and Users.

    right what i've tried is

    Host URL: 10.28.x.xx

    Version 3
    LDAP encoding utf-8

    Bind settings
    Hide password: YES
    Distinguished name
    CN=rm,OU=System Administrators,OU=CHS,OU=Estabishments,DC=ourdomai n,DC=internal

    User lookup settings

    User type MS ActiveDirectory

    Contexts OU=Students,OU=CHS,OU=Establishments,DC=ourdomain, DC=internal

    and the error i get is,
    LDAP-module cannot connect to any servers: Server: 'chs-sr-001', Connection: 'Resource id #44', Bind result


    anyone shed any light on this?

    thanks
    nick

    try putting ldap://10.28.x.xx and possibly the default ldap port on the end, so ldap://10.28.x.xx:389

    Don't let it worry you that you're running an RM network. Active Directory is still there running at the core of it, as well as all other critical server services.

    Active Directory is located in Administrative Tools on the Start Menu. It'll look more 'messy' than a standard Active Directory domain, however once you've worked it out, you should be able to get LDAP working.

    I would probably recommend installing Moodle on a member server, free of RM's tools to ensure it works correctly, rather than on the DC itself. You could also look into your LA hosting it. LDAP is still possible.

    I think I ended up using user@domain.internal for the bind username.

    Ther error you are getting is literally saying Moodle can't communicate with AD.

    Have you punched the necessary holes for the two servers to communicate with each other?
