    Convert Authentication from Open Directory to Active Directory

    wcheung

      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      I am currently setting up a new FileMaker 14 Server to replace our current outdated one.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.
