Restored Sharepoint Database to new Sharepoint Farm but does not see new Active Directory Forest RRS feed

  • Question

  • Before any jumps on be about the old users still attached to the sharepoint DB, i realize that.  Here is the scenario:

     

    Migrating to new Domain from old hosted domain.  Imported sharepoint database via stsadm from a .dat  backup.  Import was successful and site is working.  The permissions from the old hosted domain are still in the sharepoint database.  When I try to adda new user from the new AD forest, it does not see it.  I can remove the old users, but then they wouldn't have access using old credentials. 


    The question becomes...is it even possible to bind it to the new active directory forest?  If so, how do I do that?

     

     

    thank you

  • Hi itsernst,

     

    In order to move site to another domain and keep it know the users in old domain, I suggest the following steps:

    1.       Migrate the users from domain1 to domain2, you can use ADMT tool to do it, for more information, please refer to:

    2.       Use stsadm commend to migrate user access from one domain user to another.

    Syntax: stsadm –o migrateuser –oldlogin <domain\name> -newlogin <domain\name>

    So just a follow up to this:

    1. I dont care about migrating the users' on the new domain, as I have already recreated them. 

    2. This command does run successfully and previous accounts will work on the database, however I cannot add a new user by an AD Search.  If I go to create a new user in Central Admin, and I type in "username" or "domain\username" for the new domain, it returns that it isn't able to find the user.  It will not see anyone who is added to the new domain.  I can run this stsadm command and switch it to the new domain, but it seems like a long way around the immediate issue, which is binding it to the new active directory forest.

  • Hi,

    Have you reconfigured your profile import connections using your new AD?

    This is required because the user profiles have to come to SSP from AD to be able to resolve in sharepoint sites.

    You can configure profile import in SSP. Follow these

    Thank you for that as Central Admin imports users.  However the issue is not with Central Admin.  It is with the restored sharepoint site, which only shows the old domain user accounts.  After the import, Central Admin shows all users on the new domain, but if I try to add one to the restored sharepoint site, i am still prompted with no account/user found.
