Migrating permissions from a subweb to a web in WSS v2

  Asked By: Darren    Date: Oct 03    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 813

Is there a tool that can migrate permissions from a WSS v2 subweb to a
WSS v2 web.
SMIGRATE is the tool I use for these type of migrations but it does not
keep permissions as STSADM does.
I need to be able to copy the permissions from the subweb including
document library specific permissions.

WSSUserUtil will back a web's permissions  up and will also restore them to its
new location. We've used it in conjunction with SMigrate a couple of times.
It's not perfect, as it can't handle things like inheritence very well. But
it's much better than nothing.

The link's moved around. Have you searched for it in your favorite search
engine? I'm sure you'll be able to find it pretty quickly that way.

I found SPSUSERUTIL 2.5.
Is that it?

I *think* they were all part of the same bundle. Seems to me it was all in the
"Sharepoint utility suite." I don't have any SPS installations, so I probably
would have ignored the SPS version of the utilities.

It does belong in the same bundle.
