I would like to connect our Moodle 2.1 installation (Windows) to our Active Directory LDAP for authentication i.e. if a user has an account in AD, they can log in to Moodle via that username/password.
Our LDAP is not organized for Moodle (i.e. OUs in AD do not reflect courses in Moodle). Can I still use our LDAP for authentication???
If I can, I plan to use cohorts to organize groups of users within Moodle for use in enrolling students into classes.
From what I've read about how the LDAP plugin works within Moodle, it seems that if your Active Directory environment is not laid out for specific use with Moodle that it won't work. Am I misunderstanding something?
Any help is most appreciated! Thank you!
