Mac Client using SSO with AD

Hello.

 

We have several solutions in our environment that make use of SSO on Windows using Active Directory. These solutions work great, and learning to work with AD for Filemaker security has been a huge win for us.

 

We are integrating some Mac clients into our mix, and are very interested in leveraging the SSO capabilities of Active Directory for them. Apple's own "Best Practices for Integrating OS X with Active Directory" (which I followed to attach the Mac to the domain) states that one of the benefits of joining the Mac to the domain is that the joined Mac clients will "Benefit from single sign-on access to Active Directory resources through Kerberos" - but it doesn't seem to work with Filemaker (13 Advanced/13 Server - more environmental data below).

 

Before I spend too much time tinkering, does anyone know how to make this work, or if it is even possible? I get the feeling I'm just missing one setting somewhere to make it work.

 

Thanks very much.
