First of all, I have next to no experience administering Sitefinity, and was not involved with the implementation. I do have experience with IIS4 through II6. My function now is Server/SAN/VMware admin. We need to move the backend of a Sitefinity3.7 web on a WIN2K8 R2 server from an old SAN to a newer one. Thought it would be simple (done tons of these migrations before with F/P servers and older IIS versions) The front-end server itself wouldn't be touched.
I stopped the SQL services, and used Robocopy to copy everything over. I unpresented the old SAN disks from the server and "re-lettered" the new drives to match what the old ones were. I re-created the Shares, and rebooted the server.
When I tried our CMS website afterwards, I received the above error. I ended up reverting back. I brought up the new SAN disks again and looked at the differences.
The only thing I could see different was F:\INETPUB\WWWROOT\CMS had a "SiteFinity" AD security group applied to the folder with Full Control. It didn't get copied with the other ACL members. Problem is I don't know where to grab the group from. I'm assuming it's created within Sitefinity.
Again I don't know if it's that's much of an issue, as the Sitefinity.mdf is on a different, dedicated SAN disk.
Anyone have any ideas?
