It isn't an OS X 10.7 only issue. Our FileMaker Advanced Server 11 is on an OS X 10.6.5 box, and our clients are all on OS X 10.6.8 MacBooks.
We have to tell all our users to replace their full name with their short name to authenticate into the database properly. It works with the full name, but doesn't automatically find their records, while when they authenticate with their short name, everything works correctly.
We have them authenticating against an OD/AD structure. Our OpenDirectory servers get their info from our ActiveDirectory servers. We can use either OD or AD group names for external accounts with the same results.
Wish Long Names and Short Names could be used interchangeably.
I agree that it would be nice that long names and short names could be used interchangeably. We were able to use both with Open Directory until this update 184.108.40.2064.
Same problem here. I moved from a snow Leopard to a lion server and also updated fms to 220.127.116.114 and now the OD authentication only works when I use the shortname.
No quiet sure if it's a OS X 10.7 issue or a fms 11.0.4 issue...
