    Windows Active Directory authentication



      Windows Active Directory authentication


      Until recently we could access FileMaker remotely using our AD username/password now it fails saying "The account and passwordyou entered cannot be used to access this file. Please try again".  If we enter our domain name followed by a backslash then the username it works okay.  Does anyone know how we can avoid having to enter the domain\ bit please?  Thanks - Chris

          Thank you for your post.


          Obviously, something has changed.  First, I would check with the IT department to see if anything was changed with authentication.  If that is a dead end, then I would try creating a new account through Active Directory AND in FileMaker Pro.  If this works like it did previously, then the old account may be damaged.  You may want to try and reset it, even though it works properly with the domain name\username.
