SharePoint Permissions Issue - Users moved from Domain A to Domain B RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have an Windows Server 2003 AD DS forest, under which we have two domains trusted

    Domain A and Domain B

     

    We are moving users from Domain A to Domain B

     

    We have  MOSS 2007 intranet and internet SharePoint site which have several site collections with sites ranging from 10-500 in each site collection.

    Till now the users were given permissions using DomainA\userid to all these sites.

     

    After the users are moved to the new domain, I have to give permissions to the individual users once again by adding them to the sites using  the DomainB\userid account.

    We have 5000+ users what is the best way to replace or change the users permissions to use the  DomainB\Userid accounts.

     


    We give permissions,

    1. SharePoint groups with individual users

    2. SharePoint groups with AD groups

    3. SharePoing groups with AD groups and Indivdual users

    4. For some site which have unique permissions individual users are given permissions directly.

  • Hi SriMouni,

    You can use Migrateuser STSADM command / Move-SPuser PowerShell command to migrate your existing users from DomainA to Domain B - which should take care of the permissions associated. 

    An example of Migrateuser would be like this: STSADM -o migrateuser -oldlogin na\krichie -newlogin na\krichie -ignoresidhistory

    Hope this helps!

  • HI ,

    Just to add to this. The STSADM migrate user command will overwrite the permissions of your old ID to the new one but there is a disadvantage with it.

    If you have already provided permissions to your new ID it will be lost.

    I hope this will help you out.

    Thanks,
