Hi Guys,


Been out of the game for some time but trying to help out a friend. They have FileMaker 11 Pro Advanced Server running on a AD bound Windows 2003 server. They have thousands of external users in AD groups and they can all login with no problems at all. They have a select few staff in a "Admin" group that is setup with [FULL ACCESS] to their databases and they can login, make changes to layouts, database itself, fields etc. However it came time for one of them to move the order of authentication in the Security window and they were prompted for their login name and password, which is fine but it did not work. We tried every other user who is in that group, none of them worked and the only one that did work was the local admin account that also had the same [FULL ACCESS].


I tried this with many other databases, the only conclusion I can come to is that you can't change security settings unless you are a local user even if you have [FULL ACCESS] but that can't be true, can it?


Thanks for your help!
