Urgent: Renaming Groups......Migration Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Iam facing an issue with migration using backup/restore.

    My Sharepoint groups in development server starts with TEST(eg.TestSiteMembers etc.).After migration from dev to production server using stsadm backup /restore , groups also get migrated with the same name (TestSite Members).

    Whereas before restore,my groups on the production server were (Department Members, Department Owner and so on).I want to retain the Department group name even after the restore.

    Is there a solution.........

    Thank and regards,
    Gaurav Matkar

  • You should be able to do this with a export / import rather then a backup / restore.  With export / import, you are given the option to use -includeusersecurity, or in your case, to omit using it.
