SharePoint migrated user not allowed access
Posted on 2012-04-05
I have moved a SharePoint 2007 Site, Content Database, from one domain to another running SharePoint Foundation 2010. I created an account in the new domain for the user and then ran:
stsadm -o migrateuser -oldlogin DOMAINA\user -newlogin DOMAINB\user
After doing so I received the error:
New user account does not have valid SID history.
I then ran
stsadm -o migrateuser -oldlogin DOMAINA\user -newlogin DOMAINB\user -ignoresidhistory
The user information was updated in the Content Database and the user shows up on the site in the correct Group with the new domain account when I view the properties.
The two issues I have are that
1.I can log into the site with the account but get an Access Denied message to content that the olduser had access to
2.The user does not show as valid in the People Picker, red squiggly line, once picked from the group they belong to and show up as a member of
Any thoughts as to how to resolve these issues?
UPDATE - The new site is using Claims Based Authentication which is the preferred authentication method. If I create the site using Classic Mode Authentication then the migration works as expected. So how can I migrate the users to the Claims Based Authentication?
