RID Allocation Value Set at 0, Worried About Running Out of RIDs
Posted on 2005-03-10
Our PDC is the fsmo, and it allocates its own RIDs for SID creation. The issue
is that our RID Value is set to 0, whereas the common default is 500.
Yet, account creation still functions, despite the RID setting. Here
is the reg key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NTDS\RID
Values\ ) What is your RID Value set to? My boss has heard about people
running out of RIDs and not being able to create computer and user
accounts because they run out of RIDs. Naturally, we want to avoid
this. When we script account creation we get a pause after the first
account, and then the rest of the accounts are created in a snap. My
boss thinks that the RID issue is linked to the account creation
discrepancy. Any thoughts?
