find out domain user account from corrupted SID
Posted on 2009-02-16
Wondering if its possible to find out what domain user/group accounts used to reside within the "administrators" group after corrupt SID disjoined the server account from the domain. Currently, now all I see is the very long alpha-numeric string (for ex: S-1-5-21-2871644435-3958900132-1302727681-3)
Is there any way to see what user or group that this string is associated with? Thanks for any input!
I realize that I can probably rejoin the domain and it will come back, but I thought it would be handy to know if this is possible. Sometimes I see this string when looking at folder/file permissions and want to know what user or group it belonged to.
