Users cant access the site after Restore RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've restored a site to a new webapp on the same farm.

    The access control list is the same, but when you "Check Permissions" the permission given is "None".

    But these names can be seen in people and groups.

    Thats odd. Besides they cannot access the site. Only the sp admin service account can access it on server side.

    When I try to re-add one user, that's the only time she gains access to site.

    What do you think is the issue here? Do we need to perform STOP/START webapp or IISReset /noforce ??

    Thanks,

    Fran

  • Hello

    You should make sure that your migration is cross domain or not?

    You should update users if your migration is cross domain.

    And you can user Update-SPUser powershell for update users.

  • I noticed when i add the same user it has i:0#.w|fsdomain\myname

    the old user only has fsdomain\myname.

    The i:0#.w|fsdomain accounts can access but not the fsdomain.

    I noticed that source webapp is using Windows Authentication.

    The destination webapp is using Claims Based Authentication.

  • Hi

    If some users unable to access site collection after restoring site collection, it is due to the web application authentication are different.
    For your case, it required to run the authentication command to change claims based to classic on new web application.

    $setcba = Get-SPWebApplication "http://webapplication url/"
    $setcba.UseClaimsAuthentication = 0;
    $setcba.Update()


    Then check on IIS -> Authentication Mode, ensure only ASP.Net Impersonation and Windows Authentication are enabled
