AD - Sharepoint 2007 Group Synchronization after AD Group Rename RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I have a little bit of a mess on my hands.  Recently, we renamed several hundred AD groups to accommodate our IDM processes.   I had absolutely no idea Sharepoint would not reflect these changes.  So, now I have the task of re-synchronizing these group names.  I have read on several posts about using the stsadmin migrate user option.

    That's fine.  I can do that. 

    What I am having trouble with is associated the group name in Sharepoint with the group name in AD.  From what I've read, the AD SID is stored in the Sharepoint database, somewhere.  I know changing the Sharepoint database directly is not supported, and I'm not going to do that.  But, I do need to positively relate the old group name (in Sharepoint) with the new group name in AD. 

    Can anyone point me to where the AD group sid is stored in the database?

    Or, is there a better solution?
