    I've connected to my active directory with the web config file.  This means i'm able to add myself to administer pages when i'm logged in as the admin.  However when I then try to login with my AD credentials it won't let me login.  Am I not telling the login page to look at AD and only sitefinity accounts??

    Hello Eric,

    1. The backend can work only with one Membership provider, so make sure that you have set the name of your AD provider in <security> configuration section

    <security defaultProvider="DefaultSecurityProvider" cmsProvidersName="AD">

    2. The AD role should have CmsAccess permissions ( Administration >> Permissions)

    All the best,
    Ivan Dimitrov
