We're just preparing for a new deployment of 5.2 on Windows, and will be using the AOS functionality.
Most things seem fine, except for one issue. If we upload an Office document to the library, then try and Edit In Microsoft Office, Office starts and tries to load the file, but the path to the file is wrong. Instead of http://<IP address:8080>/<path to document> or http://<servername:8080>/<path to document>, the server seems to pass http://127.0.0.1:8080/<path to doc> to the client. Not sure the server loopback address is being used.
FYI, this server doesn't have its final IP address or hostname yet. That will be set when we move it to the final location.
