Configure FrontPage Server Roles

Updated: August 22, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1

The configuration of Internet Information Services (IIS) and the Web sites on the source server might reference user accounts that are stored in the local account database on the source server. These accounts stored locally on the Web server are known as local user accounts. Local user accounts are only valid on the Web server where they exist, not on other Web servers. When you migrate your Web site to another server, these local user accounts must be recreated on the target server. Once the user accounts have been created, the roles that were assigned to the user accounts on the source server must be assigned to the user accounts on the target server.

You can manage roles from the Site Administration page for your Web site. On this page you can view a list of roles, change which rights are included in a role, add a new role, and delete a role.
