Retaining User Account Lists after a Restore

  Asked By: Anushka    Date: Dec 30    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 886

For some reason when i backkup a sharepoint site with user accounts
drawn from exchange server, they user lists are cleared away when i
restore it. The rest of hte site is intact. lol

Is this part of the design to clear away user accounts on back and
restore? We have a small user set, so I can rebuild this without a
problem, but I am in shock that this happens. lol

Any comments?

What backup/restore method are you using? If it's smigrate, then it's by
design, yes. Use stsadm, spsbackup, or SQL backup to get full fidelity backups
with users and permissions retained.
