Prior to OES 2015, Active Directory users were unable to access files in NSS volumes. Therefore, DSfW users could not share files in NSS volumes with Active Directory users. However, beginning with OES 2015, Active Directory users can also natively access the NSS resources, administer them, and provision rights for Active Directory trustees. This is achieved by using the Novell Storage Services (NSS) Active Directory (AD) support feature. With NSS AD support enabling Active Directory users to access NSS volumes, DSfW users can now share their files with AD users in NSS volumes.
This chapter is designed to help you understand how DSfW works with the NSS AD support feature. For detailed information about the NSS AD support, see the OES 2015 SP1: NSS AD Administration Guide.
