I am using on-premises SharePoint 2013. We are currently using Active Directory Profile Sync. We are using security groups in AD to manage our security in SharePoint 2013. I am trying to rename a group in AD and found that this does not rename a group in SharePoint 2013. I would rather rename the group rather than having to change over 100 entries across SharePoint.
I attempted using the command stsadm -o migrategroup -oldlogin DOMAIN\Username -newlogin DOMAIN\Username
It reports Completed Successfully, but alas! no change.
What am I missing?
A little deeper, the SharePoint group name is actually a description field. SharePoint uses a group ID for internal processes. As far as the stsadm command, unless I misunderstand your questions, is not necessary.
Hope that helps
