ADS Security Identifier (SID) history value removal – November 24

What is happening? IST will be removing the ADS Security Identifiers (SIDs) history value from users and groups in the Nexus Active Directory (AD) that were originally created in the ADS domain and migrated to Nexus for all of Academic Support.

Why is this happening? The ADS domain is no longer being used widely and is in the process of being decommissioned. The SID history values that are being removed are not used in the Nexus AD and no longer need to exist.
