Determine the SID of user name.
I have this problem a lot when coming through event logs and I need to find the SID of an active directory user.
If you would like to list all of the SID’s for the users, open command prompt and run:
wmic useraccount get name,sid
Otherwise in order to find it for a particular user, run:
wmic useraccount where name=’username’ get sid
(In my case, I would replace “username” with “jtyson”)
