I want to migrate all users with their groups from WSS 3.0 to sharepoint 2010 in the same domain.Is there any powershell or other script available, which I can use directly or the only solution is to write custom code for this.

Please help.

Thanks, Ashar

Probably the easiest way to do this is backup your WSS3 farm and restore it to a temporary WSS3 farm (on 64-bit h/w etc.) without the content databases. Do an in-place upgrade to SP2010. The upgrade will migrate the SSPs to SSAs in the SP2010 farm. Back these up and restore to your production SP2010 farm, along with any configuration.

You can also restore your SSP database and restore that to your SP2010 farm. This requires some further configuration and Powershell work. See:

There is a good blog for this, which I hope helps (not mine, Bill Baer's!)

Should help? Ross
