Procedure for migrating Episerver Relate users from forms auth to AD auth?


EPiServer CMS 6 RS 2 + Relate 2 R2

Our customer have been running Episerver CMS6 with Relate for some time using forms authentication. Now we changed to AD authentication.

By changing old usernames (strUserName field in tblEPiServerCommonUser table) to "ad\username" I managed to keep old profiles and data. Users can log in and access it as before, also new users are automatically created without problem.

The only problem is Relate-search. Even after re-indexing, the old users (with changed usernames) are not show in search results members section. Only new users that did not have a profile before can be found.

Is there anything else that needs to be changed in the database to complete this "migration"? Or is there a completely different way of doing it?

P.S: If I use same site and db, but go back to forms authentication, all users can be found in search again. Both old profiles (with changed usernames) and new ones created with AD integration.

SOLVED: The thing was to add previously used user groups as child to corresponding AD-groups. Everything done in Community -> Admin Mode -> Search User/Group
