Hi, I just started working with mnet and have successfully gotten 2 instances working together nicely however, one thing I have just noticed is that there are now 2 instances of each user in the list of participants on our 2nd instance. I realize a 2nd account is being created. Is there any way around this problem?
Mnet is both a inta Moodle networking protocal and a enrolment method.
When a student networks from one Moodle to another there profile is also transfered. Even if they have a native account on the second Moodle.
When you look at the users as a admin or manager (Moodle 2*) you can for cases as above, see 2 instances or the same student/user. The one that has the Allow/Deny is the Mnet one.
Thats about as clear as mud, I think.
So is there any way around this? It's just not Admin that see's the additional accounts. In some case there are 3 instances of the same user (teacher or student) in the participants' list. I'm just wondering if I am doing something wrong...
Look at your Mnet topography. It sounds like have something like this.
A >> B B >>C C>>A meaning that the remote Moodles can roam between each other. That would account for multiple entries.
What you need is Gateway (SSO) A >> B A >> C B & C can't roam between each other.
When you log out from a B or C it will take you back to your gateway A.
By turning the inter roaming off it may fix the multiples. Not guaranteed.
hmmm... so you can't set this up with just 2 instances, you would need a third?
