Active Directory Group migration programmtically RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have a active directory with 500+ security groups. Each groups contains a set of users in it. The groups are having permission within the SharePoint 2003 portal.

    Now we are moving to a new SharePoint 2010 platform and we would like to use the Active Directory only for the Authentication. We thought of creating and managing the security groups within the SharePoint 2010 itself.

    Is there any way i can migrate all the existing AD groups to SharePoint 2010 programatically? What happen with the nested groups?

    What are all the advantages / disadvantages with this approach?

    Thank you.
