Trouble with External Authentication and Active Directory

I am trying to test external authentication to Active Directory and am having problems.

Using a Mac OSX 10.5.8 FMSA box, running version, that is bound to Active Directory.

I have groups set up in the Filemaker files that match the Primary Group in Active Directory.


My current production environment has a similiar setup but uses FMSA v 10, and is bound to Open Directory, which works fine.


Is the "Primary Group" the correct place to enter the Group name that corresponds with the Group in Filemaker?

In Open Directory, I use the "Name" field which automatically populates the "Short Name" field, which then matches the group in Filemaker.
