External Authentication of FMSA 10 with Windows Server 2008

Your post

I have some questions about External Authentication of FMSA 10.

We have a test domain called "FM1.TEST" and try to single sign on (SSO) to shared file on the FMSA 10 in this domain.

I read the PDF document "Server External Authentication" and put the settings as it said, however, it did not work. Then, I set the environment as following, and we can open the shared file with SSO.

 

So, questions are :

Q1 : Is this right way of SSO?  Or, is there more appropriate settings?

Q2 : Does SSO need the directory services settings on FMSA 10? 

 

Environment -------------------------------------------------------------------------

< Server 01>

OS: Windows Server 2008 SP1 

Role: AD Domain Controller of "FM1.TEST" domain

Accounts added: 

- FM1¥administrator (login the server 01 with this account)

- FM1¥test01 (added for SSO process)

Note:

"test01" is included in "Domain Users" Group. 

 

< Server 02>

OS: Windows Server 2008 SP1 

Role: FileMaker Server 10 Advanced installed (and member server of "FM1.TEST")

Accounts added: 

- FM1¥administrator (login the server 02 with this account)

 

  <<FMSA 10>>

  Setting of Admin Console: 

  - [Security] - [Client Authentication] - [FileMaker and External Server accounts] / checked

  - [FileMaker Pro Client] - [Directory Service] / all blank

 

    <<Shared File>>

    Account added: Users / [Full Access] access privilege

    Note:

    It seems that the account name has to  be the same as local group account name of < Server 02 >. (Not < Server 01 >)

 

< Client 01>

OS: Windows Vista Business SP1 

Role: FMP 10 installed

Accounts added: 

- FM1¥test01 (login the Client 01 with this account)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Any information (updated document, etc.) will be appreciated.

Thanks,

 

Enzen
