WSUS Duplicate SIDs
Posted on 2014-03-14
Guys, I've put numerous posts out regarding this and kind of need this explaining as Google posts are confusing me.
We have 100 PCs on the domain and due to previous images being used and sysprep not being either run or completed it seems that we have around 700 PCs with duplicate PC SIDs.
I understand that there is a PC SID and a different SUS SID, I used PSGetSID to give me the PC SID and dropped into the registry to find the SUS SID.
Both of these are different, however, the PC SID on my PC is a duplicate picked up by LANSweeper. I have run the 'duplicate SID' .bat file which I believe has changed the SUS SID but I need to know the following.
My PC SID is the same (duplicated with the other 699 others). but I'm sure my SUS SID is different now I've changed it (running the duplicate script).
Will my WSUS server use the SUS SID to identify the nodes, and if so is the SUS SID tagged to the PC SID? If it is tagged will a duplicate PC SID impact the new SUS SID?
Hope this makes sense as I don't want to throw the duplicate SID script over GPO to 700 PCs if it isn't going to work.
