Sharepoint migration

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi i had to migrate my sharepoint site to another AD.

I created the users again in the new AD and i ran the following command:

WSSUserUtil.exe -o migrate -url [sharepoint site] -usermap [users.xml] -ignoresidhistory

The command executed succesfully and the users can log in sharepoint, update lists, create sites, etc.

But i have a big problem when i (as administrator) or any user try to change the password the message "user does not exists" appear.


Could you please help me with that, i really do not know what to do!!!

Sharepoint 2010 user's migration.

Hello everybody, I've migrated my Sharepoint 2007 (Windows 2003 AD 1) to our new Sharepoint 2010 (Windows 2008 R2 AD 2) and I've found problems with the users (migrated them with ADMT 3.2 preserving SiD). They cannot connect in this new Sharepoint, probably because they are still registered in Sharepoint as AD1\user and not AD2\user? There's a way I can complete this migration without losing the old Sharepoint users security\permissions? Thanks in advance, Yuri.

Hi, I am using Quest tool for migrating from notes to SharePoint 2010. However, i cannot find any method using which I could validate the integrity of the migrated data which could be a problem when a large number of databases are in the picture.

WSS 3.0 Knowledge Base Template doesn't function properly after SharePoint 2010 migration

I migrated our WSS 3.0 instance to SharePoint 2010 in a dev environment.  So far, everything works with the exception of the most heavily utilized portion of our WSS 3.0 installation – which is a "Knowledge Base" sub-site utilizing the following features:   Knowledge Base List Instances: List Instances for the Knowledge Base Application Template Knowledge Base Modules: Modules for the Knowledge Base Application Template Knowledge Base Provisioning Handler   Link to Knowledge Base Template http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=BC4E5C4E-FBBB-4666-8E32-C4CEE09E1FE6&displaylang=en   Two issues exist with the Knowledge Base after migrating.   1.       The “Write new Article” feature which uses a content type called “Wiki Knowledge Base Article” use to open a “New Wiki Page” that provided the all of the associated fields specified in the List Content type settings.  Upon creating the new Wiki Page (i.e. Knowledge base article) it would associate it with the “Knowledge Base” document library.  The “Write new Article” feature now fails to utilize / recognize the Content Type settings and instead create a blank New Page without any fields except for “New page name:” and also creates a “Site Pages&

Migration from WSS 3.0 & MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2010


Hi All,

I am kiran and working on some migration project.

I am stuck with some basic questions,


1. I have got couple of hudred WSS 3.0 sites

2. I have got couple of hundred MOSS 2007 Enterrprise sites

I need to migrate both the above to SharePoint Server 2010 platform.

My Question is,


1. Can I directly migrate WSS 3.0 sites to SharePoint 2010 env? Is there any need to step up to MOSS 2007 and then to SharePoint 2010? Becuase all documentations talk about migrating MOSS 2007 to SS 2010.

Your help is appreiciated.

Also can you link me to some sound help links please?






Looking for guidance: Integrated SharePoint SSRS migration and upgrade from 2007 to 2010


Our existing prod farm is MOSS 07 with an integrated SSRS instance using SQL Server 2008, both on Windows Server 2003 64bit boxes. SharePoint databases are on a different SQL Server 2008 server.

I have built a new SharePoint 2010 farm on Windows Server 2008 R2 boxes, using a single SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise server as the backend for both SharePoint databases and Reporting Services (installed in Integrated mode). We are going to be using the database-attach method of upgrading our SharePoint farm.

Is there any specific guidance out there on exactly how to migrate/upgrade Reporting Services in this scenario? I've read through some of the MSDN content (How To: Migrate a Reporting Services Installation) but nothing seems to deal specifically with doing this when in Integrated mode with SharePoint. Our business heavily relies on SSRS reports in SharePoint and also shared and custom report subscriptions via email.

We do have a dev SharePoint 2010 farm in a similar configuration that I can test migration/upgrade steps. Thanks.

Old school Client/Server migration to Sharepoint


I am an old school Client/Server developer and the creator of a 10year old business application (PowerBuilder/SQL Server) that is still used today by about 100 users. The application has about 100 tables, the largest table contains about 1,000,000 records.  I am looking for a platform by which I can upgrade this application to a more feature rich, technologically current environment. It seems like Sharepoint has some features that out of the box would add value to the users.

My Questions/Problems are:

1) Is Sharepoint a viable platform that can be used to replace a legacy Client/Server application.

2) I have tried to get handle on how I can get up to speed with Sharepoint development, but all I see are details, no big picture or how to get started. (A Wiki, Blog, Announcement, Calendar, Task or 5 column list of 100 items don't really constitute the components of a business app)

3) Should I be starting with Infopath first to replace the data entry forms from the legacy app?

4) What is the best path for transitioning from a Client/Server Developer to the Sharepoint Developer?

5) Are there any online examples of a business application on a Sharepoint platform


Any help, direction or comments would be appreciated.
