How do you change the ownership of a subsite?

  Asked By: Akeem    Date: Jul 08    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2583

We had a staff member leave who had a subsite and two or three
subsites under this site. Once she was removed from Active Directory
and removed as a user for the Team Sites we started experiencing
errors: the site wouldn't come up, it would just display the error
message "user can not be found". For the first 2 or 3 hours we
thought it was referring to the user trying to access the site. Then
we started working back though what had changed for the site and
remember that the staff member that created the site has been
removed. When I looked at the documentation... I could only find
information to change the site owner for a Site Collection. I needed
to change the site owner for a subsite under the Site Collection.

At the moment we resolved the issue by added the staff members account
back into the AD :( Clearly this is NOT a REAL solution. Am I
missing a chapter in the Admin Guide or what? Any clues to a better
solution is greatly appreciated.
