Issue with users synchronization RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All.

    I have two project servers A and B. B server is the full copy of A. But the difference between them is that users' accounts have differenf IDs. For example on A server on page http://srv/PWA/_layouts/people.aspx?MembershipGroupId=0 user Alex Smith has ID 5 and on server B he has ID - 12. 

    How can i synchronize IDs?

  • SharePoint internally manages / gives the users an ID. As far as I know you can't sync these IDs as these are used internally by SharePoint. What is the issue with the ID's being different?

  • Paul,

    The issue is that:

    I've saved list templates with data from server A and restored it on server B.

    One of the column in list is "Assigned to". For example - on server A item of list has "Assigned to" Alex Smith and after moving to server B "Assigned to" changed to John Smirnov.

    And this issue happened with all lists (about 400).

    Are there any ways to change IDs on server B?
