Dear all,

I'm going sligthy mad ...

My Net

- Win 2003 SBS ( Domain Controller ) with OU

- Win 2003 Web Edition for FM server 7

External authentication is set on Filemaker Server and the domain

groups names are FMSAdmin and FMSUser.

In FMSUser there are Domain Users as member (30 users).

In FMSAdmin there are 3 users.

Filemaker open files only for FMSAdmin and only for 2 FMSUsers.

Other connection are not allowed !!!

This messge appaire in Filemaker when other users try to open files

"do not have privilege to continue this operation".

I have read External Authentication guide and I've match everything.

What do you think about this ?

Thanks a lot.

2 things:

- you're violating the "web edition" license by installing FMS on it. Legally it can only act as a web server.

- "groups in groups" doesn't work too well in FMS7, it's fixed in FMS8. For your setup, add all the domain users individually to the FMSusers group and things should work.

Just to amplify on what Wim said, I believe you would have been better served by using Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition. It's the one certified, and I have had no issues with it at all. OTOH, every other combination or flavor of OS that I have seen where FMS7 or FMS7A was installed experienced some sort of difficulty.
