    Migrating User Accounts when Moving SharePoint to a New Domain

    Status: Validated

    TOPIC
    How to update user accounts defined within workflows when moving SharePoint to a new domain.
    INSTRUCTIONS
    Use the NWAdmin command "MigrateUser". For example: NWAdmin.exe -o MigrateUser -oldUser originalUsername -newUser newUsername

    Note:
    • The command can currently only migrate one user at a time.
    • Workflow definitions and running workflows are not changed. It would be best if all running workflows could be completed or terminated before the migration is done.
    • Any workflow that has user credentials manually entered (effectively hard-coded) will have to be edited and updated manually.
    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
    This operation is used to change all references to a username to a new username. Changes are only made to historic workflow data and user settings. Workflow definitions and running workflows are not changed.
