Site Permissions Dropping

  Asked By: Jamison    Date: Dec 23    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 796

We had two groups in AD called Development one was a Security only group
and the other was a Security and Distribution group. We collapsed the
two groups into the later. The pre-Windows 2000 names were Development
and Development1. We also renamed the later removing the 1.

The portal had been referencing the security only group that we killed
so I went in and removed the domain group as Heather Solomon describes
with appending the siteusrs.aspx to the URL. I then added the group
back and everything works fine.

About noon for the last two days the domain group falls off several of
the sites. I thought the profile import could have been affecting this
however it does not correspond to the scheduled profile imports.

Has anyone seen this before?

Are the sites which drop the group  inheriting permissions?

Answer #2    Answered By: Agustin Miranda     Answered On: Dec 23

One of them is the top level site  in a site collection. Then there are
some sub sites that inherit the permissions  and then other sub sites
that have unique permissions that also use this security  group and they
are falling off as well.

I just put the permissions back for the top level site then went to a
sub site with unique permissions a few min later to do the same then a
few min later was told the permissions fell off the top level site.
This same order of events happened yesterday with these same sites.

I think there is a conflict with two names in the db having different guids.
To test, create another AD group  with a unique name (Dev2)containing the same
users and add it to the sites.

If I could purge the profile db would that help? I preformed a full
import after the change but not sure that is the same as a purge.

Answer #5    Answered By: Kareem Flynn     Answered On: Dec 23

Not sure, I'd have to determine using trial and error. But I don't have
an AD environment nor do I have any profiles.

So does anyone know how to purge the database?
