There is a script ( that allows this. The instructions on the linked page are detailed enough, so take this as a reminder to me (and anyone who comes across this) of where to find it and how to do it 🙂

Here is exact steps to move SSP Administration site to a new web application

Create a new web application through central admin

Define a new “ssp/admin” manage path for the new web application created for SSP Admin site, ensure the new web application created that will host the new ssp admin site is selected and also specify “explicit inclusion” for type and “ssp/admin” for path, click “Ok”

Create a new site collection using SSP Administration site template

stsadm –o createsite –url http://{replace with your servername}:{replace with port}/ssp/admin -owneremail {owneremail} –ownerlogin {ownerlogin} –sitetemplate OSRV#0 –title “Shared Services Administration {replace with your ssp name}”

edit the ssp to point to the new ssp administration site

Stsadm –o editssp –title “{replace with your ssp name” –sspadminsite “http://{replace with your server name}:{replace with port}/ssp/admin”
