Selecting users and groups manually

With the manual method, you select permissions one at a time. For example, use the Manual User/Group Selection tab to clone the permissions on the Everyone group to the BobV user account. The BobV user account will have the same access rights as the Everyone group

1
Open the Manual User/Group Selection tab.
2
In the Source Group or User area, select the domain or object from which to pull the permissions. The default is the current object, whose path displays in the top box.
In the Destination Group or User area, select the domain or object to receive the cloned permissions. The default is the current object, whose path displays in the top box.
To add all users to the Source and Destination lists, click Show Users.
To select a specific user to add to the Source and Destination lists, click Advanced User Selection.
To return the Source and Destination lists to groups only, click Refresh.
3
Click Add.

Selecting users and groups automatically

The Clone feature is useful when you are migrating domains. After you create all the new groups and users in the new domain, use the Automatic User/Group Selection tab to copy the permissions from the old domain to the new domain.

TIP: You also can use the Auto Clone advanced task to automatically pair accounts for cloning. Once you enter a path, and click OK, the Automatic User/Group Selection tab opens with the path list automatically populated.
1
Open the Automatic User/Group Selection tab.
2
From the Source list, select the domain to use as the source.
3
From the Destination list, select the domain to use as the destination.
5
Click Start Automatic Selection.

Updating permissions relating to a user's SID history

Use SID History to update Access Control Lists (ACLs) with SIDs relating to the user’s SID in the new domain.

NOTE: You also can update ACLS with SIDs in the Group and User Management module. Right-click one or more domain users, choose Clone Permissions (using SID History), and choose the path. The SID History tab displays any pairs found.
1
Open the SID History tab.
2
In the Domain and AD Query boxes, create a query filter to find the user or group in Active Directory®.
To display a progress bar while Security Explorer® searches Active Directory, select the Display Progress check box.
3
Click Find SID History Accounts.
4
Click Close.
The Browse SID History dialog box displays the domain and AD query entered on the SID History tab. You can change the domain and AD query, if necessary.
6
Click Load. The groups and users are listed as they are checked.
If you selected the Include SID check box, you can use the scroll bar to view the entire SID, or point the cursor to group or user.

Importing users and groups

You can import source/destination pairs for cloning. The CSV file must contain a list of source and destination accounts, where each pair is separated by a new line and the source and destination are separated by a comma. For example: ACME\BSmith,ACME\JAdams.

1
Open the Import User/Group Selection tab.
4
Click Execute Import.
