I think the ldif provide here is generated on the first creation account
with pdbedit -a
creatorsname: cn=dir manager
modifiersname: cn=Directory Manager
You can find sid domain with :
net getlocalsid DOMAINE_NAME
SID for domain DOMAIN is: S-1-5-21-XXXXXXXXXX-XXXXXXX-XXXXXXXXXX
He is different from localsid on the same machine:
SID for domain SERV1 is: S-1-5-21-XXXXXXXXX-XXXXXXXX-XXXXXXXX
As I migrate fron an alpha version , I change it straighly in the ldap
I didn't find any command to change it on the ldap server except an
There is also a command that go back on the last sid.
I have a doc ... In french.
