We are moving our FileMaker 11 databases from a Mac Server to a Windows 2008 R2 server and want to use external authentication for IWP users. We have been using the Mac OS Open Directory for years with no problems. We would like to use Openldap as the account management software on the Windows server. Is this compatible with FileMaker Server 11 Advanced?
No. FM can only authenticate against Active Directory and Open Directory (and local accounts/groups on the FMS box). On Windows only against AD and the local groups.
If you have OpenLDAP as your directory service of choice you'd have to sync it to an AD or OD for FM to authenticate against.
