what's the way to migrate user identity store (AGS built-in store) to new server

Discussion created by sealjack on Mar 5, 2013
We have 100+ users on our current AGS built-in store need to transfer to a new AGS on another server. What's the best way doing it?

My thought would be first get a list of all user names, roles, and passwords, then use Arcpy and AGS Administrator API to batch upload the info to the new server.

Unfortunately we don't have a full list of every users and passwords :( so need a way to export the current user names, roles, and passwords from AGS. The AGS Administrator API export user names and roles, but didn't mention passwords. Is that right? Or I missed some pages. Any advice wound be appreciated! Thanks.
