Well, yes and no, NIS was a Sun thing and was a way of having 
centralised authentication on Unix, rfc2307 is the attributes to use for 
Unix authentication with LDAP. AD server for NIS comes with their 
variation on rfc2307, you only need the purely NIS server bits if you 
are using AD as a NIS server and have 'nis' in the passwd & group lines 
in /etc/nsswitch.conf (unless anybody knows differently).
