External Authentication breaks after 11v3 update


FileMaker Server



Operating system version

Mac OSXS 10.6.7

Description of the issue

We have a Mac mini server which was running FMS 11v2 on OSXS 10.6.7 quite happily using external authentication (from OD running on a separate machine running OSXS 10.6.6). We applied the 11v3 update and trouble started. Some users were able to log in and some could not. This is similar to one of the problems reportedly fixed by the update, and one that we experienced (on a different machine) with 11v1. After an uninstall of FMS and then reinstall, leaving it at 11v2 has restored full functionality.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Clean install of OSXS 10.6.7 on Mac mini. Install FMS 11 and all updates.
Configure server to use  to OD fro another machine running OSXS 10.6.6.
Configure server to require external authentication.
Host some files that have some accounts that require external authentication.

Expected result

All users can login using external authentication

Actual result

Some users can login via external authentication, some can't.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

Uninstall FMS and reinstall 11v2.
