OES 2015 NSS for AD

The big new feature in OES 2015 is NSS for AD.  With NSS for AD, AD users can be given file system access to an OES server.  Coupled with DSfW a functioning bi-directional trust will be possible.

Currently the limits with a bi-directional trust are with file system access from the AD side to the eDir/DSfW side.  The work around has been to add an AD user to a eDir/DSfW group and via the group the user will gain the needed ACLs to access a file system.  The problem has been file access via this method is limited to only DSfW servers.  This does not work with other OES servers.  Now with NSS for AD complete AD user access will be possible.
