Hi Robert,

if you do not want Moodle automatically create users upon authentication against an external backend, you could try to set to No "Prevent account creation when authenticating | authpreventaccountcreation" in Site administration > Plugins > Authentication > Manage authentication. This setting is available from Moodle 2.1 onwards.

I had thought of that. However, we would like the external database to create accounts so that when new students enroll we don't have to do the job twice. Any other ideas?
