Bind Moodle to LDAP/Tjener/PAM
I managed to setup Moodle 1.8.2, now I try to use our Skolelinux user
base (in LDAP/on tjener) for Moodle as well. Moodle offers several
modes here, I installed and tested these:
With ldap, I might have missed some parameters, anyway known users
Imap doesn't offer many settings, but doesn't work either.
PAM, however works like this: Known users can connect and need to fill
in compulsary fields, esp. sur/name. Now I wonder if I cannot make PAM
to pre-fill these fields (given name), because this is what Moodle
displays as user name (it seems to be its philosophy to hide away login
names, so only admins will know who is _really_ behind user "Jimi
Also, the use of roles and classes would make things perfect. Any hints
for this? If I'd manage to use the LDAP module, it should be quite easy
to extract the needed fields.
This is more or less what I need to know:
Thanks for now,
