Recently I was asked by a customer on the steps required to upgrade content from MOSS 2007 (Windows auth) web application to SharePoint server 2010 and providing access to the sites and my sites for same users and groups via AD FS 2.0. For this post I am not going through steps for configuring AD FS 2.0 and adding a trusted identity provider in SharePoint 2010 and assume that:
Following is a list of tasks required to successfully upgrade the content and migrate users and groups from Windows auth to AD FS 2.0:
$user=Get-SPUser -Web https://portal.contoso.com -Identity "i:0#.w|contoso\JohnD" move-spuser -Identity $user -NewAlias "i:0ǹ.t|adfs20server|JohnD" -ignoresid
I should note that further assessment and testing required in regards to other services such as Search, Excel services, etc.
This is very helpful. I'm actually seeking something very similar that requires configuring MOSS 2007 MySites using ADFS. Recommend any concrete references to go about configuring?
Thanks for the detailed documentation.
What are the benefits of moving from Windows Auth to AD FS 2.0? That seems like a lot of work.
For MOSS 2007 TechNet has some materials but as you might know our story in SP 2010 is differnet...
@Tom, agree with your point, and this just touches the surface. I know BPOS-D is moving to this direction but not sure this is really a valuable approach jut for the sake of using AD FS 2.0 ;)
