called if the id_provider equals "AD".
Also technically the NetBIOS name could be completely different from the
AD domain name and could have been read from the rootDSE. But honestly
I really don't think it's worth it, so I went with a config option, that
would be unset in the vast majority of deployments.
TBH I am not really happy with doing this through a paramter.
A flat name is fully discoverable from AD and allowing users to set it
has the consequences that they can get it wrong, and it is one more
What is the reason we want to have it so badly now, but do not want to
do proper discovery to get it ?
