Hello. Does anyone have an idea on how to configure a Wondows 2000 client to show the SID of any user that logs in to that computer. We run a Novell Netware 6.5 network, and have about 60 W2K clients. I have a generic local account for the W2K stations. When a user logs in, it does not record the users ID, but the local user account. I know Zenworks disables the local user account and records the SID of any user logging it to the W2K, or XP clients; but we are not ready to implement Zenworks on our network, yet. We have a W2K DController but control everything through Novell. Is there another way to do it? Your help will very appreciated. Thank you

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

If you want the SID of the locally logged on user, you might want to use something like user2sid %USERNAME%. That will report back the SID of the currently logged on user of the local computer. I’m not sure if this is what you are trying to achieve or not, however, you should be able to save that information to a variable to use in your login script (I’m assuming this is what you want to do).
