Hi there,

We are soon taking over an existing enviroment from a company thats splitting away from the main branch so we will be building a completly new enviroment for them. Due to all the politics we arn't alowed to access there old enviroment and may only request information to be forwarded to us.

I just recieved the dump of there fileshare and i see all of the usergroups are still under "security" on the folders. The problem is there just SID's so i cant really tell what goes where.

Is it possible to make a group and connect it to an SID in any way as it will save days of work for me :)

Really apriciate any ideas you might have or pointers of things we should think about that might not be too obvious.

Have a good weekend everyone!

EDIT: Oh yeh, moving from a 2003 enviroment to a 2008
