we have a Moodle 1.9.12 and a Moodle 2.1 installation running.
MNet ist well configured, so users of Moodle 1.9 can login as usual and afterwards they can switch between both Moodles without being forced to login again.
They can make a self-enrolment in Moodle 2 - courses and they are also displayed in the "All users" overview.
MNet-authenticated users do not appear in the "available users"-list, when trying to enrol them manually in Moodle 2 - courses by a trainer, only local Moodle 2 - users are displayed in this list.
Why are remote users not listed as available users in Moodle 2 courses even if they have a Moodle 2 - remote - account?
Is there any option to make a manual enrolment of remote users available?
With kind regards
Hi there. I don't know if this is any help as I haven't used it but have you enabled the Mnet plugin in settings>site admin>plugins>enrolments>manage enrol plugins and then gone to a course and enabled it there in the course admin >users>enrolment methods? I'm not sure how this works so I can't promise anything.
yes I checked this out, but this will just allow the Moodle 1.9 - admin to enrol Moodle 1.9 local users to remote courses in Moodle 2.
As a trainer normally is not an admin this will not work for my trainers and the main problem still exists: I can not give any MNet authenticated user in Moodle 2 the role of a trainer (or any other role) in Moodle 2, cause he is not present in any "available users" list.
Nevertheless I really appreciate your help!
In Moodle 2.0* network users are handled differently.
You need to have Moodle admin privelages Moodle 2. Go to
- Site administration
- / ► Networking
- / ► Remote enrolments client
From there select the remote and do the enrol magic.
The default role is student, you will need to alter the user privaleges on the remote site after the enrolment are done.
the remote enrolment works fine, but in general it is not a good solution for us (to many students and courses), so a trainer (as an MNet authentificated user without being an admin) should be able to enrol other MNet authentifcated users directly (as usual).
For now we decided to go back to LDAP-Logins in both Moodle installations, so there are local users in both systems with an unique authentification source.
