I have exported a site collection and then imported the collection to a new site collection in a new farm using the same user profile and import from the same domain. I cannot for some reason get any users validated on the new site collection. The farm admins group works fine and I can login using creditials of an admin user but when adding other users to the site collection they cannot get access and looking in the IIS logs the error is a 401 access denied.
We had some issues with the import which then the developer recreated the usercontrol for the new site collection since it didnt make it over. Also our master page is customized and that did not come over seemlessly either. The customized master page has code which determines your user audience and then give you a different look and feel using CSS based on your user ID.
I need to know how I can fix the 401 error in the new site collection. If more information is needed please ask.
