i would not do this with a DC, as the SID is a essential Part in a Domain.
But i never tried to do something.

I'd demote the DC first then change the sid, the re-promote it.
You can run a SID changer against a DC but don't expect it work work with the domain if you do as it's a vital id for the domain.
