Greetings everyone!

I'm having an odd issue with AD integration and admin console login. Within "General Settings' in the admin console I have "use external groups" selected and "Filemaker Admins" specified which shows as "Validated" when I click "Test External Group".

 

Active Directory is setup as follow:

AD group- Filemaker Admins

AD group- Server Admins

 

"Server Admins" (currently setup as a member of the Administrators group on the server) is a member of "Filemaker Admins" and they can log into the admin console with no problems however if I add a domain user to "Filemaker Admins" they fail to log in. If I take that same user that is failing to log in and make them a member of "Server Admins" they log in successfully.

I attempted to make "Filemaker Admins" domain group a member of the Users group on the server but it had the same results when they attempted to login.

What gives?
