using moodle 2.4.3
In our moodle site we have mnet enabled to allow our users to sso from moodle to mahara. This works well. Users login to moodle and are authenticated against ldap so we have both ldap and mnet enabled. However, since enabling mnet, I've noticed that users created via the imsenterprise plugin have their auth field in the mdl_user table set to 'ldap,mnet'. When these users try to login to moodle, they receive an error message 'Invalid login, please try again'. As a site admin, if I try and view their profile, the following error is displayed:
authentication plugin ldap,mnet not found.

Error code: authpluginnotfound

I can fix it by running the following query:
update mdl_user set auth='ldap' where uath like "%mnet%" but the next time the imsenterprise import is run, I'll get new users created with mdl_user.auth='ldap,mnet'.
For now I've hacked the code in enrol/imsenterprise/lib.php and changed:
$person->auth = $CFG->auth;
$person->auth = "ldap";
So that new users get created with auth='ldap'.
Has anyone else experienced this problem? Could it be that I haven't set something up correctly?
