Summary

Server External Authentication

Product

FileMaker Server

Version

12

Operating system version

Windows

Steps to reproduce the problem

I've created a local group on my server called FM-Admins and populated it with an Active Directory account.  The server is not a domain controller but a server joined to Active Directory running Windows Server Enterprise SP2 and fully patched/updated.

I've enabled the radio box for "Filemaker and external accounts" on the server.

On the client side I've added the external server security option (see attached) but it doesn't appear to work.  I've tried username, AD\username.  Only the FM accounts appear to work.
