Migrateuser fails while claiming succes RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am moving MOSS 2007 users from a pair of domains in one forest to a domain in another forest. The domains trust each other.

    stsadm migrateuser is being run by a farm admin account that is an Account Operator in both source domains (which I believe does not matter, but I mention in case I'm wrong).

    For the vast majority of accounts in the same domain as the farm, all went well. Eventually (we had a couple of bad days).

    For a large number of user in the other domain (based on sampling) the stsadm migrateuser command reported success but the profiles have not moved, and site permissions remain with the old logins.

    Any ideas?

  • What I discovered was that almost all the failures were associated with sommand lines that looked like this:

    stsadm -o migrateuser -oldlogin grandchild.child.parent\user -newlogin newgrandchild\newuser -ignoresidhistory.

    These lines INVARIABLY failed, while reporting success. After edit things worked fine.
