Novell Open Enterprise Server 2015 (OES 2015) Linux Support Pack 1


When specifying an AD Supervisor Group other than "Domain Admins" during the NSS AD configuration, it fails to set the AD Supervisor Group and it gets the default value of "Domain Admins"


After the NSS AD configuration completes and the OES server is joined to the AD Domain, run "nitconfig set ad-supervisor-group=CustomGroupName" to set the desired AD Supervisor Group.
This has been reported to engineering.
