[Deploying Sakai] LDAP Integration Step by Step Guide

Steve - We recently set up LDAP in 2.6.0 using your instructions. However, we find that we do need to create the user accounts in Sakai by entering a user id. Otherwise, the LDAP authentication fails. Is there a setting that eliminates the need to do this?
We also have a related concern. Users can edit their account settings and create weak passwords in Sakai. Since Sakai allows authentication to fall through from LDAP to application-managed authentication, the users can then authenticate with these weak passwords. Do you have any suggestions for
1. preventing LDAP-authenticated users from authenticating with internal Sakai passwords
2. enforcing strong passwords for those users who don't have LDAP entries?

Delete the user from your Sakai instance or use another user in LDAP that doesn't have a record in Sakai. With LDAP you don't need to create the user accounts in Sakai, all of their info will come from LDAP.
