FileMaker Extra: Configuring External Authentication Servers for Mac OS X

To use external server authentication, FileMaker Server must be set to use FileMaker and External Server accounts for Client Authentication. On Mac OS X, you can use either local accounts and groups that reside on the machine that FileMaker Server is running on, or domain accounts and groups. You should consult with your IT personnel in charge of security to determine which option would be preferable in your particular case. Generally, if your organization has centralized control of user accounts and passwords, that information is maintained on a domain server. If login information has not been centralized organization-wide, but you'd still like to maintain account information outside of FileMaker, you can set that up on the machine on which FileMaker is running.

If you happen to be the person responsible for setting up users and groups, you should know that you can maintain this information on either a Mac OS X Server machine or just a machine running regular Mac OS X.
