        Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies use a common set of Windows Server® 2003 services named Windows® SharePoint Services, to take advantage of the performance, stability, and security features of the Microsoft .NET Framework. Use Windows SharePoint Services to create and maintain team sites. Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003, a server product, is built on Windows SharePoint Services, and adds features used to build and manage integrated, large-scale portal solutions.

        The Service Pack 2 (SP2) release of Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003 adds a supported API that you can use to update SharePoint Portal Server 2003 with changes to user accounts. When a user is migrated in the Active Directory® directory service, the security identifier (SID) changes for that user. Additionally, the logon information for that user might be changed. Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 and SharePoint Portal Server 2003 store user information based on both the user's SID and the user's logon information. When the user's SID or logon information changes in Active Directory, Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 and SharePoint Portal Server 2003 must be updated with the new user information before that user can successfully access SharePoint Portal Server 2003. Using the new, supported account migration APIs, you can update SharePoint Portal Server 2003 with new user information.

        Following are the new object model topics added in the SDK refresh for SP2:
        Note: MigrateAccount updates Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003 settings only. Windows SharePoint Services settings should be updated first by way of its MigrateUserAccount method. It is recommended that you run the Windows SharePoint Services migration API before you run the Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003 API.
