Updated: September 22, 2009

Applies To: Windows Essential Business Server

Migrating users from Windows SBS 2003 to the Remote Web Workplace Users security group in Windows EBS

When you migrate user data from Windows SBS 2003, a second Remote Web Workplace Users security group is created in Active Directory in Windows EBS. For users to have remote access to the local network for Windows EBS, you need to add the users to the default Remote Web Workplace Users security group.

To migrate users to the default Remote Web Workplace Users security group in Windows EBS
  1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Windows Essential Business Server, and then click Windows Essential Business Server Administration Console.

    noteNote
    You must use an account that is in the Domain Admins group to perform this procedure.

  2. Click the Users and Groups tab, and then click Group Management.

  3. Click the Remote Web Workplace Users security group that has 0 (zero) members. This is the default Remote Web Workplace Users security group. In the tasks pane, click Change group properties.

  4. In the Remote Web Workplace Users Properties dialog box, click the Members tab. Verify that this is the default security group—there should be no members listed.

  5. In the Windows Essential Business Server Administration Console, click the Remote Web Workplace Users security group that has members listed. The default Remote Web Workplace Users Properties dialog box will minimize. In the tasks pane, click Change group properties.

  6. In the open Remote Web Workplace Users Properties dialog box, click the General tab, and then in the Description text box, type From SBS. Click the Members tab. A list of users who have remote access configured in Windows SBS 2003 appears.

  7. Click the minimized default Remote Web Workplace Users Properties dialog box and arrange the two security group properties dialog boxes side-by-side.

  8. In the Remote Web Workplace Users Properties dialog box with no members, click Add. Use the members’ list in the Remote Web Workplace Users Properties dialog box from Windows SBS 2003 as a guide to add members to your Windows EBS local network. You must add each user name or group individually.

  9. When you are done adding users to the default Remote Web Workplace Users Properties dialog box, click OK in both dialog boxes to close them.

  10. To delete the unnecessary Remote Web Workplace Users security group, in the Windows Essential Business Server Administration Console, click the Remote Web Workplace Users security group that migrated from Windows SBS 2003. In the tasks pane, click Change group properties and verify that the text in the Description text box reads From SBS. Close the dialog box.

  11. In the tasks pane, click Remove group. In the confirmation dialog box, click Remove group to confirm the deletion.
