Hi,


I have a user who is migrated to different domain with his SID history. The same user can't acces to old server which is still on old domain but another user can.
How can I verify a user SID history and make sure he still has the old SID link to his AD account?

For Exemple: Windows 2003 and AD 2003

UserX.domain1.com
UserY.domain1.com

Server1.doamin1.com


Both users are migrated to domain2.com so: UserX.domain2.com et UserY.domain2.com

UserY.domain2.com can still access to Server1.doamin1.com but not UserX.domain2.com


How can't I verify the SID history of old account is still linked to UserX.domain2.com?

Using a program like LDP or ADSIEdit, look at the sIDHistory attribute on the user for any SIDs.  From there, if you know the format of the SID for the old directory, you should be able to quickly determine if a SID from that old domain is attached to the user account in question.
