How to maintain site groups, users, etc across server moves?

  Asked By: Sonny    Date: Jan 27    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 939

I've been using smigrate to move WSS sites from one server to another
and this doesn't maintain the sites users or custom site groups. Any
one have a suggestion how I can transplant sites without losing all of
the security settings

Bear in mind, though it carry over everything but it is intended only for Top Level Web site  Collection. STSADM backup/restore does not support moving/deploying the sub-sites.
