Make the Authentication provider for NDS and NMAS a Filr Appliance configurable option

Problem:
In the Novell Open Enterprise Server Environment a Password Policy is active. This Password Policy has the "Remove the NDS password when setting Universal Password" option set to true, or has the "Synchronize NDS password when setting Universal Password" set to False.

After the successful upgrade to Filr 2.0 LDAP imported Filr users are not able to fully log into Filr.
The initial login succeeds, but after that login an LDAP error "You need to authenticate again due to an LDAP credential change" and they are returned to the Filr login.

This can be addressed by re configuring the XPlat client of the Filr appliance(s) in such a way it uses NMAS authentication as Default Authentication Provider (TID 7017371).

Solution:
Make the Authentication provider for NDS and NMAS a configurable option in the Appliance Admin Console.
