New to Meraki, Client VPN authentication

I'm able to connect to Client VPN using Meraki Cloud authentication, but I want to use Active Directory authentication.  I have a green check mark next to my Active Directory authentication page.

I'm using a trial Meraki, but if I can't connect to VPN, this doesn't help me.

If I try with username = Authentication failed


If I try with domainname\username = Authentication failed


I know I'm typing in the correct username and password.


The only way I can connect to VPN now is if I use the Meraki cloud authentication.

Kind of a big deal

Kind of a big deal
