SharePoint 2007 and Cross-Forest Configuration.

Microsoft SharePoint
2 Comments1 Solution1345 ViewsLast Modified:
My organization has SharePoint 2007 implemented in our domain and we were recently aquired by another company. The AD integration has been moving forward using Quest Tools which also resulted in a one-way (we trust them) trust being implemented.

I've researched and implemented changes concerning the cross-forest people picker configuration and that works fine; however, I have concern with the fact there two ids for employees in aquired company (one in the domain where SP is and another in the domain of the aquiring company).

I thought about filtering the people picker results using the stsadm commands until we "stsadm -o migrate" the users; however, I came accross the following doucment discussing the use of the MsDs-SourceObjectDN property and how that might perform some sort of mapping:


The quest migration that the AD team did evidently did not populate this attribute. My question is, can I update this manually and what values should be populated in each respective forest.

My goal would be for a user to be able to use either AD account (original or migrated) to access their SharePoint sites...

Thanks for any help.
