in SharePoint 2007 command prompt at this location: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\BIN\

I type this command to migrate user from one domain to another like:

stsadm -migrateuser -oldlogin ABC\52339 -newlogin DEF\52339

I got "Access denied" message. Why is that?

  • which account you are using to run stsadm? you should use administrator account Nov 24, 2014 at 14:04
  • Also make sure to run the command prompt with 'run as administrator' if UAC is enabled Nov 24, 2014 at 18:49
