We use folder and server specific AD security groups to manage access to our shared folders, and need to replace some of the groups as we are migrating them to a new server.
The folder specific groupss are ServerA-dir-folder-rw, serverA-dir-folder-ro
The server specific groups is ServerA-dir-rw, ServerA-dir-ro
We need to rename the folder groups to ServerB-dir-folder-rw, serverB-dir-folder-ro - whch attributes should we rename - cn,name,samaccountname,etc?
We need tor replace the server specific groups with ServerB-dir-rw, ServerB-dir-ro - we cannot rename those, as they are still in use on Server A. How do I replace these?
The issue is we have a lot of blocked inheritance down the folder structure, so we cant just replace them at the top level.
If it were me, I'd create a group, assign it to a folder, rename it to confirm it still works as expected and then do your live groups.
