  • 11. OES Altair
  • 12. NSS access for AD users Allows corporations with mandate to consolidate to one directory ( AD) or Integrate MS shops acquired to continue to leverage NSS file system investment and keep NSS features / benefits. – – User maps via CIFS to NSS, and leverages AD group policies for client drive mappings – – 12 Windows / AD Server Retain IRF’s / Visibility NSS Storage Works for eDirectory and AD environment Explorer / MMC plugins to manage rights on NSS volumes © Novell, Inc.
