Migrating FrontPage Users and Roles

Updated: August 22, 2005

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

When the source server has Web sites that are FrontPage extended and FrontPage roles have been assigned to the Web site users, you need to migrate the FrontPage roles to the target server. The FrontPage roles control the types of access that users have on FrontPage extended Web sites. FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions are administered through the Microsoft SharePoint™ Team Services HTML administration tool, which is installed with FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions.

The predefined FrontPage roles include the following:

  • Administrator. Users assigned this role can view, add, and change all server content; and manage server settings and accounts.

  • Advanced author. Users assigned this role can view, add, and change pages, documents, themes, and borders; and recalculate hyperlinks.

  • Author. Users assigned this role can view, add, and change pages and documents.

  • Contributor. Users assigned this role can view pages and documents, and view and contribute to discussions.

  • Browser. Users assigned this role can view pages and documents.

In addition to the predefined FrontPage roles, custom FrontPage roles might be defined on the source server.

Migrate FrontPage users and roles by completing the following steps:

  1. Identify the FrontPage roles on the source server and compare them to the FrontPage roles on the target server.

  2. Create any FrontPage roles on the target server that exist on the source server but do not exist on the target server.

  3. For each FrontPage user on the source server that is local to the source server, create a corresponding user on the target server, and then assign that user the same FrontPage roles that are assigned to the corresponding user on the source server.

  4. For each FrontPage user on the source server that is in Active Directory, assign the user the same FrontPage roles on the target server.
