Servers with duplicate SIDs
Posted on 2011-04-21
I have three Win 2008 R2 production servers, one with SQL, one with SQLRS and one with IIS installed that have ended up with the same SIDs as a trusting domain. I have confirmed this with psgetsid.
I need to, if possible, generate new SIDs for these serves without killing the installed apps.
Is this even possible? Could I take them off the domain, run Ghostwalker , or can I run SysPrep (making sure the generalize box is ticked) to generate new SIDs, and rejoin to the domain without killing the installs?
It's really going to be a major problem if I have to rebuild the servers from scratch. They are VMs so I can take clones/snapshots etc to try things out.
Any advice welcome, thanks
