  • SID of user?

    Can I view the SID of a user on a particular domain? If so, how?

    Re: SID of user?

    Yes, there are a couple of ways:

    1. If you use a Windows NT domain (and Windows NT domain object in Hyena), you need to go to Tools->Settings->Display, change the display type to "User Details" and add the SID to the display attributes. Then, right click on the Users object for a NT 4.0 domain, and select "View all User Details". The SID will then be displayed. Warning: this function can be slow...

    2. If you are using Hyena with a Windows 2000 domain object, you can view the SID on the Object tab (in v4.2, in beta now), or by adding the SID to any view (File->Manage Object View). The SID is a standard ADSI attribute that can be displayed for any object. Or, right click on a user and select Listing Views->User (All) to get a single user's SID.

      I was able to use method 1 to get the user SIDs for my WinNT domain.

      However, I did not understand your instructions in #2 for Win2k. What do I do once I've opened
      "File -> Manage Object View"?

        Once you open Object Manager, you would click on the Queries tab, and select the type of query to modify. In your case, it would probably be "All Users". Then, select a query to modify (or create a new one). For example, select the "Users (Details-General)" query. At the bottom right of the window, set the Attribute Category to be "User Attributes", and scroll down and find the SID attribute. Then, add this to the query, and arrage it where you want in the attribute order. After that, right click on All Users, select Tabular Views->Users (Details-General), and you can then see the SID value.
