FMS 17 doesn't advertise the configured server name via Bonjour

FMS 17 v2 - Windows 2012 R2

FMPA 17v2 - Windows 2012 R2

Server is configured with the servername myname.mydomain.org. Wildcard cert for *.mydomain.org is installed. Bonjour is installed on server and client. When you browse hosts from the terminal server in FMPA, you see myname.mydomain.org. When you hover over it you see, myname.local. When you click on the server you get "can't verify the identity".

 

In FMS 16 it seemed that the broadcast name was the name configured for the server. Am I wrong? If we could control the broadcast name, then Bonjour would be useful, otherwise, it is in conflict with modern security requirements.

 

Thanks for all your effort, and for FileMaker!
