Just wondering if Front Page Server Extensions and WebDAV can live happily together on the same
W2K3/IIS6 server. I have been tasked with migrating our web publishing technologies from FPSE to WebDAV and my plan is to:
Is this an OK plan? I am most concerned with 1) FPSE and WebDAV playing nicely together and 2) the NTFS permissions assigned by FPSE being adequate in a WebDAV world.
Any insight is appreciated. Thanks!

Should be fine.

The permissions set by FPSE are ugly! It creates local groups for each web. They should work (please test) but you may want to reorganize them.

Thanks for the response!
Leveraging existing FPSE permissions, while ugly, is the most efficient approach. FPSE permissions were already assigned to Active Directory groups so that is a plus. Ideally, we wont have to make a change to any of the NTFS permissions but you are correct...they
look very ugly. I think a secondary goal of the project will be to assign standard NTFS permissions to the existing AD groups used for web publishing.
