Has anyone gone through a domain consolidation exercise and had to change/administrate the SharePoint side of things? I'm interested in hear your experiences in how you managed this.
To my mind there are 4 areas to consider:
1. Permissions obviously - did you use an internally developed application, or are there 3rd party products out there on the market?
2. My Sites - with new accounts being created how did this affect your deployment? I'm thinking we will have to ditch the existing sites and restore on request - not pretty with hundreds of existing site collections for My Sites, but I doubt they are heavily utilised in our environment.
3. My Links - we have a tool for migrating those if necessary, thankfully!
4. SSP Profile Import configuration - not expecting anything too difficult here??
Information provided by my AD technical team:
They are using the Quest migration software for the AD migrations
We will be using SID history which will help with a lot of the security aspects as the migrated account will appear to be the same as the original from an AD security point of view, but obviously a lot of testing we will need to do - and by the sounds of it a fairly big clean up exercise as well!
Does SharePoint store the actual SID for the domain account at all? If so, we might not have such a major issue with the permissions aspect.
