When you use the Migration Tool for NetWare (Nwconv.exe) with a mapping file to migrate files, groups, and users from a NetWare server to a Windows NT domain controller, you may find that file and folder permissions for groups are not correctly migrated. In addition, you may see errors in the Error Log similar to the following:
Access Rights for: <Volume>:<Dir>Error 0: Adding Access Rights.
NOTE: The old group name is listed in the Error Log instead of the new group name. The new groups are created on the Windows NT domain controller; it is only the file and folder permissions for these groups that are not created.
This problem occurs because of improper sorting of the mapped group names. The Migration Tool for NetWare uses a binary compare of the existing group list and the mapped group list.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows NT 4.0 or Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
