Problem description

OES creates a wwwrun system user to run its web services. One of the web
services that requires this system account is iFolder 3 enterprise. If there
multiple OES servers in the same tree, then its possible that there will be
several wwwrun users with the same UID in the tree. This scenario will cause
getFDNFromUID to fail. The effect of this is that the wwwrun user will not be
granted the rights necessary on an NSS volume to function properly.
The net effect is that iFolder 3 Enterprise which relies on wwwruns ability to
function will not be installable on an NSS volume.
