Hi, this cuts across to the CPS forum topic, I know. But it's more of an Administration topic, I think.
I'm changing over to Active Directory, and I made the switch in the CPS admin screen. I did a test search and it works fine. I logged in to Contribute and my connections are gone. To create a new connection to the site, the message says "Contribute needs to remove the administrative settings." Is there any way around this? I have quite a few users and roles. Maybe there's a text file burried somewhere that I can modify to keep the settings somehow? I don't see any way to export the Contribute settings like you can do with the Dreamweaver site settings.
Anyone know a hack for this?
I'm wondering if simply backing up the _mm folder then restoring it after the change would work. Thoughts?
Can you try this: In CPS console change it back to the previous LDAP setting. Now, in Contribute create connection to your website, and disable Contribute Publishing Server. In CPS console, change the setting to Active Directory. Now, in Contribute, enable the Contribute Publishing Server. You will not lose any roles, you may have to add the users to the appropriate roles again though.
