Can I resolve the AD group name base on SID if it has been deleted?

Hi,

I'm seeing only the SID number in the folder security permissions. I believe it is because the group has been deleted from the AD. Can I still find out the name of the group that was deleted based on the SID alone?

If the object is still tombstoned you can get the name. One way would be to use ADFind from joeware.net

an example would be

adfind -showdel -f objectsid=S-1-5-21-1140794203-5324537521-3023241126-134678 name

Is there any other way without a third party tool? Preferably Microsoft tools.

You can use PsGetSid from the sysinternals suite
