Convert Authentication from Open Directory to Active Directory

Hi,

 

I am currently setting up a new FileMaker 14 Server to replace our current outdated one.  The old FIleMaker Server authenticates with OS X Server with Open Directory.  I would like to move all these FileMaker groups from Open Directory to Active Directory and have a few questions about the whole process.

 

If I were to move the groups over, can I use the same names for the groups, so I do not have to update the access for each FileMaker database?  It seems like this shouldn't be an issue, but I would like to make sure before creating all of the groups in AD.

 

How can I create a new Open Sesame launcher to see a list of all of the databases?

 

Thanks in advanced for the help.
