Hello Nadya,

Following our discussion on SD, I wanted to do one more test, I created 
an OU called test in a w2k3r2 DC with a w2k3 forest level.

I created a user inside this OU.
Then I changed the inheritance of this OU, so that it didn't inherit SD 
from parent (DC=w2k3r2, DC=home, DC=matws, DC=net).
You can see that both the OU and the user have the SD modified.

I then removed the ACE related Enterprise admin, and one more time both 
entries were modified, that's quite logical in fact, but what is 
interesting is that the USN of the user hasn't change. In a way that's 
logical because the its SD has changed just because the parent SD has 

I just wanted to attract your attention on this point.
