xeus Posted February 23, 2005 Share Posted February 23, 2005 Hello, I've looked through about every post concerning this issue and can't seem to find what I'm looking for. Here is my problem: We use windows Active Directory, and let's say for example that it has a dns/domain name of example.net however, it has a netbios name of XMPL I have server 7 / server 7 advanced ( tried with advanced and without ) installed on a Windows Server 2003 box. They have been fully patched. The server shows up in the hosts listed by LDAP just fine, with the correct dn. Its the authentication that doesn't work. I have created groups in the domain and added domain users to them and it won't authenticate. After that didn't work, I tried a local group with the same name but with our domain account names added to it. I've tried pointing the external authentication group at an OU where the users reside instead of a group, just for kicks. I'm really lost here. I've also looked at the Security Event logs on the server, and one time it tried to log in as [email protected], which is bogus and would never work.. its like it is being misinterpreted, and/or the domain example.net isn't being detected by filemaker's authentication. Yes, the server is part of the domain. Yes, it is set to external authentication. If I make an 'fmsadmin' group on the local machine and add any domain accounts to it, it won't authenticate the domain accounts, but it will authenticate any local computer accounts ( I juse use the administrator local account in the fmsadmin group to log in to the server currently. ) I went further to try and install FM7Server fresh for the extra options it gives about authentication to domain accounts, and then installing the patch again. any info or ideas anyone can give are appreciated, Nick Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
