Retrieve AD SID on remote computer

Recommended Posts


Anyone have any clues on how to retrieve the SID of a current logged in user on a remote computer? I was looking at ScriptOMatic for WMI code, but couldn't find anything that would retrieve Active Directory SIDs. Only would retrieve the SID of local users on the machine.

$wbemFlagReturnImmediately = 0x10
$wbemFlagForwardOnly = 0x20
$colItems = ""
$strComputer = "localhost"

$Output = $Output & "Computer: " & $strComputer  & @CRLF
$Output = $Output & "==========================================" & @CRLF
$objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & $strComputer & "\root\CIMV2")
$colItems = $objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_SID", "WQL", _

If IsObj($colItems) then

      $strBinaryRepresentation = $objItem.BinaryRepresentation(0)

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.
