Migrating Security from TEST to PROD
We have a test environment and a production environment. A ton of users meant we had to end up creating a few custom security roles. We have great success using stand alone replication rules to migrate items from test to production. The only thing we are seing a problem with is security permissions.
- Stand alone security role replication rules work great.
- Stand alone security privilege rules work great.
- There is not a security permission rule.
The KB article Standalone Security Replication options: http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO77236 specifically states "These do NOT replicate permissions that the selected roles have permissions on."
Additional research indicates that item permissions are replicated when Notification Servers are in a hierarchy. Our observations prove this to be 100% correct. There does not appear to be any article about replicating from one NS to another when they are not in a hiearchy.
Does anyone have any suggestions for getting item permissions to replicate from one NS to another when they are not in a hieracrchy? We have no desire to make production a child of the test environment and creating a multi-tier hieararchy.
Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.
