Hi all,

setting up a couple of virtual systems and want to clone the 2008 R2 image. Anyone know if I can run New Sid on 2008 R2? Also, any idea where I can download the latest version please?

Thanks

Newsid is no longer supported and it doesn't work on 2008 R2.  You can still use sysprep.

Good short entry here   http://www.rayheffer.com/619/cloning-windows-server-2008-r2-use-sysprep-no-more-newsid/

Thanks

if you are using ESX then you can just select the 'generate new SID' during the clone process

Hi mkline71, I've run that and chose the shut down option and then made the clone. Is there any way of actually identifying that the SID is changed - probably a dumb question.

Hi setasoujiro, many thanks but using work staion version instead.

You can use psgetsid (from the same team that developed newsid)   http://www.brajkovic.info/windows-server-2008/how-to-check-your-sid-using-psgetsid/
