Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You shouldn’t ever need to change the SID of an object within AD.

Why are you trying to change the SID?

I have done this numerous times. When deploying machines from an image that wasn’t created from sysprep, also virtual machines created from base image. MS/sysinternals has a tool called NEWSID
