I need to make changes to users registry settings on a terminal server. How do I look up the user's SID?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you don't wanna use third party software, here is an another method----->

Open regedit and goto:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\Cu rrentVersion\ProfileList

Click on any of key on the left [SID] and check out the right pane for ProfileImagePath. Now you should find something as following there:

%SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings\madman

Now "madman" (as in above line) is the name of the account associated with the SID you selected in the left pane.

Don't know if it's helpful for your purposes, but you could Microsoft's getsid.exe utility from the Windows rsource kit tools

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc779004(WS.10).aspx

You could use this within a batch file to set an environment variable ... you can find an example here:

later on you could use the reg.exe utility to automate your modification under the approiate HKEY_USERS subkey.

Kind Regards,
