OS X external auth: Only shortnames are working for login on new deployment.

Your post

Hello...

I currently have FMS9 running on OS X server 10.5.x, using external authentication and local (non-OD) accounts. Users are able to login just fine with either their short name (firstlast) or the longer friendly name (First Last).

I'm putting together a new 10.6 server with FMS11, and so far in my testing, only the short names are working. As far as I can tell, the config is exactly the same.

Thanks for any tips... Chris

p.s. Just to be clear, I'm referring to the account name, not the group name. I know there's an issue with case sensitivity there, but that's not the problem. The user can get in fine, however only with their short name.
